Nissan has unveiled the IMX Kuro at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, providing a glimpse of its future ‘intelligent mobility’ vision.
The IMX was first revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show in October 2017 but now features Nissan’s Brain-to-Vehicle (B2V) technology. B2V interprets signals from the driver’s brain to assist with driving and to help the vehicle’s autonomous and manual systems learn from the driver.
“The IMX Kuro zero-emission crossover concept vehicle embodies the future of Nissan Intelligent Mobility,” said Jose Munoz, Nissan’s chief performance officer. “Nissan Intelligent Mobility is Nissan’s commitment to changing the way people and cars communicate, as well as how cars interact with society in the near future and beyond.”
At the core of the Nissan IMX Kuro’s technological features is a future version of ProPilot that offers fully autonomous operation.
When engaged the system stows the steering wheel inside the dashboard and reclines all seats, giving the driver more space and allowing the vehicle’s occupants to relax and enjoy their commute.
In Manual drive mode the vehicle returns the steering wheel and seats to their original position, seamlessly transferring control back to the driver.
Nissan says the B2V technology promises to speed up reaction times for drivers and will lead to cars that keep adapting to make driving more enjoyable.
The Nissan IMX Kuro zero-emission concept vehicle adopts Nissan’s new electric vehicle platform, designed for maximum efficiency.
Two electric motors at the front and rear provide all-wheel-drive capability. Combine they produce 425PS with a new battery that supports a driving range of 370 miles.
