And radical it is. The Nissan Mixim futuristic electric coupe concept is one of the crazier cars being showcased at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show. The huge gullwing doors — which seem to extend right into the roofline to make for a strange T-top look when open — are probably the most noticeable features on this radical new car.
A peek inside reveals a steering wheel that resembles resembles a video game controller, an LCD command center, and a unique 1+2 seating arrangement. Yes, I said 1+2. The driver sits in the middle of the cockpit, whereas the two passengers flank him on either side, sitting just a little more to the rear.
No gasoline or diesel here. The Nissan Mixim concept gets its grunt from a pack of high-output lithium ion batteries. Nissan calls it the Super Motor and it is designed to power the left and right wheels independently.
