As part of the brand's push for Nissan Intelligent Mobility--a vision for a new future of eco-friendly and sustainable car power and performance--Nissan rolled out its all-new electric crossover concept at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show (GIMS) this week.

We saw this release on Tuesday, but the Nissan IMx KURO Concept has been making small appearances for the last few months.

We're excited to see what will happen with this all-new concept SUV, and see if it'll soon be a viable option for St. Louis drivers who are looking to go electric.


Learn About the IMx KURO Concept

The zero-emission concept vehicle has been designed for maximum efficiency, built on the brand's newest EV platform (the one that we're seeing on the impressive new LEAF generation). The Nissan IMx KURO concept is powered by two electric motors, one each placed at the front and rear, which allow it to run with all-wheel-drive muscle.

A Nissan AWD electric SUV? That's what we're talking about.

The IMX KURO concept has also been built to seamlessly be able to integrate itself into current and future society--it runs on incredible new technologies both for charging and for driver-assistance, and it even offers some semi-autonomous driving capabilities.

It's the coolest new thing in electric, and we can't wait to see where it goes.


Current Available EV and PHEV Nissan Vehicles

Since the IMx KURO is still just in concept form, it's not yet available--and we don't know if this model exactly will ever hit the production line, or if it'll just be an inspiration for a future, even more improved model.

If you're looking to bide your time in a new EV until Nissan rolls out the red carpet for its future electric crossover, consider the recently-redesigned 2018 LEAF: it boasts a 151-mile driving range, an eye-catching new style, tons of standard comfort and safety features, and it can charge fully, easily, overnight in your driveway.
