Nissan Hurricane Li-ION To Make Electricity Sexy

Based on the electric powertrain of the Mixim concept, Paolo Martin's Hurricane sits much lower on a stretched wheelbase. The exaggerated proportions of the car are intended to make the Mixim's advanced technology more desirable and acceptable to the general public as well as drastically reducing the coefficient of drag.

While the exterior is largely dominated by the wedge shape and large 19" front, 20" rear wheels, the cabin contrasts it with a practical, futuristic layout. Passengers sit behind the centrally mounted driver in a staggered arrangement with the middle passenger facing backwards. This shape is defined by the safety cell, which is designed to serve as both an incredibly strong reinforcement and provide unparalleled views for the driver. [Via CarBodyDesign]
