'Imagine' by Kia Concept Car
“It’s a bit of everything that we like in cars. Things that talk to us from the emotional point of view, all blended in. And it makes it, you know, feel familiar. It feels known. Yet, it is very innovative. It is progressive...it’s not science fiction. It is actually tomorrow.Gregory Guillaume, Chief Designer Europe, Kia
Nissan IMQ Concept Car
The IMQ concept is a futuristic crossover equipped with the company’s e-power electric power train.
The four-seater uses a 1.5-litre turbocharged gasoline engine to power multiple electric motors giving all-wheel drive, 335 horsepower.
It’s our vision of what the next generation crossover vehicle should be. And it is also an electrified power train. And when I say electrified, it is not a fully-electric vehicle, but it is an electric power train driving this new crossover. And it will have an onboard internal combustion engine producing the electricity to drive the electric power train.Ponz Pandikuthira Vice President, Product Planning, Nissan
