Nissan will display 14 models at the 46th Tokyo Motor Show, including the IMk, a new zero-emission concept car that embodies the future of Nissan Intelligent Mobility.
The Nissan LEAF e+, Serena e-POWER, GT-R and the new Skyline equipped with the ProPILOT 2.0 driver assistance system will also be on exhibit at the show, which takes place at Tokyo Big Sight from Oct. 25 through Nov. 4.
The Nissan IMk: a zero-emission urban commuter
The Nissan IMk is the ultimate urban commuter, with cutting-edge technologies and powerful EV acceleration in a compact body that signals the future of Nissan design. More than just a functional city car, it’s a chic vehicle designed to reduce driver stress while offering excitement and confidence on an all-new EV platform.
Equipped with the latest ProPILOT advanced driver assistance technologies and seamless connectivity features, the IMk provides a glimpse of how urban-oriented cars may look and feel in the near future. The IMk reflects a minimalistic aesthetic, drawing on Nissan’s new design philosophy, called Timeless Japanese Futurism. Incorporating “Japanese DNA” in details inside and outside, the concept car hints at the new direction of Nissan’s design language and how it helps bring to life the Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision.
The Nissan LEAF e+: enhanced range and performance
Nissan has sold more than 430,000 Nissan LEAF electric cars globally since the model debuted in 2010. The LEAF e+ offers additional range and more powerful performance by adding a new electric powertrain. The high-capacity, high-density battery offers more than 40% additional range (up to 458 kilometers under the WLTC Japan standard). The excellent energy efficiency and robust torque and power output offer customers an even more exciting driving experience.
Serena e-POWER: popular minivan with award-winning e-POWER system
The Serena minivan is known as an early adopter of advanced new technologies such as ProPILOT and e-POWER. Introduced in March 2019, the Serena’s e-POWER electrified powertrain has been named Technology of the Year for 2019 by the Automotive Researchers’ and Journalists’ Conference of Japan (RJC). Refreshed in August 2019, the Serena now provides 360-degree safety protection as standard equipment across the entire model range. The updated front grille effectively communicates the Serena’s premium qualities and gives it a distinctively sporty character.
The new Nissan Skyline: premium sports sedan with ProPILOT 2.0
The Skyline name has been synonymous with Nissan technology and excitement since the first Skyline model debuted in 1957. The new Skyline now comes with Pro-PILOT 2.0, the world’s first driver assistance system to combine navigated highway driving with hands-off capabilities.
Designed for on-ramp to off-ramp (ramp-to-ramp) highway1 driving, ProPILOT 2.0 engages with the vehicle's navigation system to help maneuver the car according to a predefined route on designated roadways. The system also enables hands-off driving2 while cruising in a single lane, as long as the driver’s attention is on the road ahead and the driver is ready to take over when required.
Gasoline-powered versions are newly fitted with a 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo VR30DDTT engine, and the model’s new 400R grade is the most powerful Skyline ever, with 400 horsepower.
1) A national expressway as prescribed by Japan’s National Expressway Act. A limited highway as prescribed by the Road Act.
2) The hands-off feature is not available on roads that have two-way traffic, in tunnels, on winding roads, in tollgate areas, merging lanes, or areas with a decreasing number of lanes, and in areas where manual control is required. When entering a road section where hands-off driving is not available, the system will alert the driver in advance so the driver can take manual control of steering.
The Nissan GT-R: ultimate driving pleasure
The 2020 Nissan GT-R fully leverages Nissan’s racing technologies for even greater acceleration and handling performance. At this year’s Tokyo Motor Show, Nissan will display the Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary special edition model and the 2020 Nissan GT-R NISMO.
Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary: This special edition model showcases the GT-R’s classy but sporty character by featuring exclusive interior and exterior items and two-tone color combinations reminiscent of traditional Nissan works liveries.
2020 Nissan GT-R NISMO: This model’s new turbochargers are the same ones used on the 2018 GT3 race car version of the GT-R. The newly developed carbon ceramic brakes deliver unrivaled brake performance. Exterior components made of carbon materials include the roof, engine hood and front fenders. Together with carbon ceramic brakes and the new Recaro front seats, the wide application of carbon materials result in a near 30-kilogram weight reduction. This significantly improves the car’s cornering performance.
Original Nissan merchandise
A souvenir shop at the Nissan booth will sell event-limited merchandise commemorating the 50th anniversaries of the Nissan GT-R and the Nissan Z. Other merchandise, including items with Nissan logos and toy cars, will also be available.
