Under the hood sits a fuel cell stack, using hydrogen to generate electricity. One electric motor drives the front wheels, while in-wheel motors turn the rear wheels, giving the Terra concept all-wheel drive. Nissan does not specify what kind of hydrogen storage the Terra might have.

The tablet sitting in front of the steering wheel works as the key to the car, and is meant to be taken out by the driver after the car is parked. In the car, it shows speed, energy usage, and infotainment functions. When removed, it can be used as a standard tablet.
