Aside from having a fun name, Nissan said the Altimate AWD concept was a fun way to show off the automaker's first-ever AWD application in the Altima sedan.

In Canada, where this will debut, AWD is standard.

To make tackling the snow a breeze, Nissan outfitted its concept with snow tracks instead of regular ol', you know, wheels.

The tracks are each 48 inches long and 30 inches tall, giving the Altima just a bit more height than usual.

There's also a 3-inch lift in there to ensure the tracks fit in the first place.

To make the tracks look good, Nissan gave the concept some wild 7-inch fender flares that help divert four rooster tails of snow away from the body.

Nissan called on Quebec's Motorsports in Action group to create a bespoke widebody kit that took about 150 hours to assemble.
