The IDS Concept has a long wheelbase for more interior room.
Suicide rear doors make it easier to see inside on show cars.
The sharply profiled rear fenders help detach air for better aerodynamics.
Note the IDS concept's prominent haunches.
Electric vehicles need airflow too, to cool motors and batteries.
Newer technologies like LEDs have enabled smaller, lighter, more efficient headlamps.
Rear boomerang-shaped tail lights fit Nissan's current design direction.
Oversized wheels and low-profile rubber suggest sports car more than eco car.
Gorgeous floating seats cant inward in autonomous mode.
Natural, unvarnished woods are all the rage these days in both concept and production cars.
