Nissan Qashqai Home: Concept Car Database: Nissan Qashqai

Nissan Qashqai
The Qashqai is a compact Crossover with an advanced electronic four-wheel drive system and is best described as an ¤Urban NomadË. It reflects Nissan╠s belief that consumers╠ tastes are changing to echo their lifestyles which are becoming more active.

The concept is the first complete design project to have come from Nissan Design Europe╠s new facility which opened in London in January 2003 and is now home to over 50 international designers, modellers and support staff. The studio╠s mission is to design the next generation of Nissan cars for Europe.

Although a concept car, Nissan has recognized that prospective owners of the Qashqai would be based in an urban environment. They will be successful in their careers considering their age. As well as working hard during the week, their car will allow them to escape the city at weekends and play hard, seeking adventure with like-minded friends.

The interior of the car reflects the varied role it will have to play, with an innovative folding seat arrangement allowing bikes, outdoor activity equipment and the weekly shopping to be easily stowed. This flexibility is aided by rear doors which are hinged on the back edge, allowing a massive loading aperture thanks to the lack of a B-pillar. Despite the lack of B-pillar, the structural strength of the Qashqai is uncompromised thanks to the individual seat mounting.

The exterior design incorporates strong Nissan DNA seen in the design of the Micra, 350Z and Primera. The Qashqai╠s large wheels and exaggerated wheel-arches give the vehicle a purposeful stance, echoing the strength of a large 4x4, but with delicate design touches which endow it with a softer, less aggressive look.
