Nissan IDx concept headed into production, could be introduced in a couple of years – report
Nissan IDx Freeflow and IDx Nismo 20.11.2013 [20th Nov, 2013]
Will slot below the 370Z
Nissan Executive Vice President Andy Palmer has confirmed the company will offer a production version of one of their IDx concepts.
Talking to Go Auto, Palmer said “One of those two [concepts] will go into what we call our midterm plan. Now, whether we do both remains to be seen. I am not saying that we won’t do both, but we definitely will do one of them.”
The executive declined to say which one was green-lighted but confirmed it will slot below the 370Z in terms of pricing, size and positioning.
When the concepts were introduced, Nissan hinted the production version of the IDx Freeflow could use a 1.2- to -1.5-liter petrol engine and a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The IDx NISMO concept, on the other hand, was slated to receive a turbocharged 1.6-liter engine and a “sporty CVT with 6-speed manual shift mode and synchronized rev control.”
