Set to take centre stage on the Nissan stand at next month’s Auto China 2014 in Beijing is a sedan concept (Sport Sedan concept from Detroit ’14 pictured).

Details are scarce, but the Japanese carmaker makes reference to the Friend-ME concept that turned up in Shanghai last year, so will this be a Friend-ME sedan of sorts?

The Friend-ME concept was aimed at Chinese males in their mid-20s; the new one is built around China’s digital lifestyle, and “expresses Nissan’s passion and focus in the world’s most dynamic auto market.”

The sedan concept will be the second time for Beijing-based Nissan Design China to realise a concept design in collaboration with the Nissan Global Design Centre under the leadership of Nissan senior VP and chief creative officer Shiro Nakamura.

Nissan is also set to bring the Teana 10th Anniversary Special Edition, X-Trail, NV200 Xtronic, BladeGlider concept and Autonomous Drive car to the show.
