The new product planning boss at Nissan is less interested in the BladeGlider concept, and putting it into production isn't an immediate priority. Last year, the wedge-shaped model was believed to be part of the company's mid-term plan.
Just like the DeltaWing and ZEOD RC racecars, it takes seeing the Nissan BladeGlider concept live to get a true appreciation for its design. But that doesn't mean it's any less weird. The wedge-shaped, three-seat concept car hit the stage today at the Tokyo Motor Show, and Nissan says the car is an "exploratory prototype" for a future production model.
