Nissan Hints at Entry-Level Electric Sports Car to Take on Rivals
Is Nissan Set to Rekindle the Spirit of Its IDx Concept with an Affordable Electric Sports Car?
It’s astonishing to think that a full decade has passed since Nissan took the wraps off the IDx concept at the Tokyo Motor Show, teasing the prospect of an entry-level sports car, including a Nismo version. A decade later, enthusiasts are still waiting for a production version to materialize. While the dream of a sub-Z model remains elusive, there’s a glimmer of hope, as indicated by Nissan’s product planning chief, Ivan Espinosa, in an interview with Top Gear magazine.
Espinosa remarked, “Depending on which point in time you take, we’ve always had the GT-R, we’ve always had Z, and we’ve always had an entry-level car – either a hot hatch like Pulsar or something else at that price and performance point. And this is something we kind of miss today, at that price and performance point.”
