Nissan is on track with its plans to help usher in a future with Nissan EVs. The company has unveiled a new livery for its Formula E race car, which is inspired by the Japanese Kimono. The brand’s entrance into the motorsport marked the first time a Japanese manufacturer will race in one of the highest forms of motorsport in the world.
Looming above this is the announcement of the Nissan Pavilion, where visitors can experience current and future vehicles, technology, and more.
Nissan’s Formula E race car’s livery was unveiled in Yokohama and shares the same scheme on the Nissan LEAF Nismo RC, a dual-electric motor performance car. Nearly 40 in-house designers took to the task of creating a new livery for Nissan and submitted several concepts to be considered. A new powertrain replaces the two-motor setup that Nissan previously used, in line with the regulations. The brand remains committed to developing its talents and assets in the Formula E space, but other areas are also being taken care of in order to push EVs further.
The Nissan Pavilion will be an interactive venue near the brand’s headquarters. Set to open at the start of next summer in Yokohama, the venue will be a destination that can appeal to the locals and visitors of the area. The goal of this site is to showcase the innovations, products, technologies, and stories of Nissan. The Pavilion will also host global new-vehicle announcement events. Coming in at 10,000 square-meters, a variety of advanced Nissan technologies that include the ProPILOT driver assistance system, Invisible-to-Visible (I2V) connected-car experiences, and Nissan Energy solutions that help EV customers and society harness electricity. The Nissan Pavilion is planned as a temporary experience for four months next summer.
With the eyes of the world turning to Japan next summer, we have a can’t-miss opportunity to share our company’s vision. The Nissan Pavilion will show how Nissan’s focus on technology and innovation is energizing human potential to create a better world.
All of these efforts help Nissan realize its goal of Intelligent Mobility, which is the company’s vision for changing how cars are powered, driven, and connected with society.
