Although still early in their development stage, the concepts provide a glimpse into Nissan’s future design language with the Chill-Out being the closest of the four to production form. The model is built on the same platform as the upcoming Ariya and will feature the same e-4ORCE twin-motor all-wheel drive technology.

The concepts also feature solid-state battery technology, the next-generation of battery construction that would have significant safety and performance enhancements over current liquid batteries such as lithium-ion.

Some of the most noteworthy features of the new concepts include the see-through front grill in the Max-Out concept and the theater-style seating in the Hang-Out which also has a system to filter out vibrations and bumps in the cabin to limit motion sickness.
