Dubbed the Ellure concept, Nissan says the “dramatic” sedan will add “a new dimension to the traditional sedan design”, that new dimension being “innovation”.
Nissan has revealed no further details about the sedan which will be unveiled on November 17, but some are already speculating it could be related to the Infiniti Essence hybrid coupe concept which made its debut at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show.
That vehicle – designed to commemorate the 20th
anniversary of the Infiniti brand – was 4.72m long and set on a 2.80m wheelbase. It was powered by a twin turbocharged 3.7-litre V6 and an electric motor which combined to produce 440kW of power.
Two other vehicles will make their debuts alongside the Ellure at Los Angeles under Nissan’s “Innovation For All” slogan, with the Murano CrossCabriolet and the Quest minivan to appear for the first time before they hit US showrooms in early 2011.
Nissan says the Murano CrossCabriolet will become the world’s first all-wheel drive convertible crossover and will offer room for four adults and four golf bags with the top down.
