Nissan plans to bring to life its vision for the future of mobility at the CES 2020 through a series of exhibits, ranging from the zero-emission Nissan Ariya Concept to an electric ice cream van and a golf ball that always finds the cup. The company aims to features exhibits that engage all five senses and show how advanced vehicle technologies can power and add excitement to everyday life.
The highlights for the planned CES line-up include the Nissan Ariya Concept, bringing together advanced technologies on an all-new EV platform, making its North American debut at the Las Vegas trade show. The zero-emission crossover embodies the Nissan Intelligent Mobility, representing an expansive lineup of technologies and services that promise customers an innovative, future-thinking driving and ownership experience as well as a seamless and adaptive travel experiences free of accidents or harmful emissions. Additionally, it features a spacious, premium cabin with high-tech features and a body that conveys the pure, clean nature of electric cars.
Frosty treats dispensed by Nissan’s zero-emission ice cream van will also be on display. Nissan partnered with Mackie's of Scotland, an ice cream producer powering its family-owned dairy farm by renewable wind and solar energy. The project demonstrates how a ‘Sky to Scoop’ approach can remove carbon dependence at every stage of the ice cream journey. The prototype van is based on the e-NV200, Nissan's 100% electric LCV (light commercial vehicle). The concept is a working demonstration of Nissan's Electric Ecosystem, combining a zero-emission drivetrain, second-life battery storage and renewable solar energy generation.
A golf ball inspired by Nissan’s ProPILOT 2.0 advanced driver assistance technology, which guarantees you’ll sink your putt each time will also be on display. Similar to the Skyline's ProPILOT 2.0 advanced technology, the ProPILOT golf ball supports golfers by following a predefined route to its goal. Players can feel confident that they will reach their target effortlessly on each putt. Using technology influenced by Nissan Intelligent Mobility – the company's vision for how cars are powered, driven and integrated into society – the ball navigates its way across the green and into the cup on the first putt, providing a stress-free golf experience.
Displays of Nissan’s new Formula E and the Nissan LEAF e+ electric vehicles are also planned. The red, black and white design is inspired by the Japanese kimono garment, a traditional symbol of longevity and good fortune. Nissan invited its nearly 40 in-house designers, working in key markets around the world, to submit concepts for the new design.
That apart, viewer interest is expected to be high for the acoustic meta-materials that ensure a quiet cabin and a serene ride. The CES 2020 will take place from Jan. 7-10 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
