Nissan to show new MIXIM electric concept car at Frankfurt auto show
Trappes, France – At this year’s 62nd Frankfurt Motor Show, Nissan will be showing an all new electric-powered MIXIM concept car, a one-off show car based on the Micra, and the heavily revised Micra small car.
The Mixim concept car is a compact vehicle for young drivers who are mostly engaged by their computer and the world via the internet. The driver sits centrally, with two seats either side, while the steering wheel and controls are inspired by the interfaces so familiar to computer gamers.
Powered by Nissan’s ‘Super Motor’ electric motor/generator and using compact lithium-ion batteries, Mixim has unusually rapid performance combined with a usefully extended range. One Super Motor powers the front axle and a second drives the rear axle, giving Mixim all-wheel drive.
The Mixim takes the most up-to-date electric vehicle (EV) technology and clothes it in a svelte and distinctive coup
