nissan amenio

Are minivans, pardon me, MPVs making a come-back? If you believe in J-cool, then the answer is YES.

We've already shown you Suzuki's funky P.X concept, and now, Nissan is joining in with their own cool MPV concept — Amenio. To be shown at the upcoming Tokyo show, Amenio hints toward what the next-gen Quest might look like. True, those 20-inch rims probably won't make it to production, but maybe those cool lounge chairs and that real skylight will. The coolest part of this concept, however, is the 18-inch ultra-wide monitor in the center of the IP that displays in 3 modes:

  • City Browsing — showing various points of interest along the way as you drive

  • Earth Browsing — looking down from outer space at cars traveling on earth

  • Space Browsing — displays star constellations where the Amenio is heading

Sure, Earth and Space modes are probably not terribly useful, but they are so f**king cool. And oh ya, Amenio also comes equipped with the Around View Monitor that eliminates blind spots. Who knows, maybe Chili Palmer will drive one of these in the next Get Shorty sequel.

More pics after the jump…
