Countdown to Beijing: Concept Evolution

Nissan has teased the yet-unnamed sedan concept it’s bringing to Beijing next month – or at least, that’s what we suppose is hiding beneath that cloth.

The obscured vehicle is pictured beside Auto Shanghai 2013‘s Friend-ME concept, displaying their C-shaped headlamp signatures. This is a further allusion to a relationship between the two.

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-TrailNV200 Xtronic, BladeGlider concept and Autonomous Drive car to the show.
