They say that beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder, but when it comes to the Nissan BladeGlider, I think that it is pretty safe to assume that just about everyone would behold it to be a beauty. This is a streamlined and futuristic ride from Japanese company Nissan, where they have called this particular ride the Nissan BladeGlider which recently debuted at the Tokyo Motor Show. The Nissan BladeGlider is said to have been inspired by the aerial engineering of a glider and the “triangular shape” of a “high performance swept wing aircraft,” and it will be a fully electric ride that will certainly turn heads far more than that blinged out Hummer.
The Nissan BladeGlider will feature a lightweight 3.2 feet front track and a wider, stable rear track which is touted to deliver superior balance and aerodynamics which will further improve maneuverability while reducing drag. Nissan designers claimed that they did not throw in any other showy components such as wings or excessive mods at all, as these will do nothing but induce drag and slow down the vehicle. The Nissan BladeGlider is able to seat up to a trio of people thanks to its triangular layout, where there will be a couple in the back cockpit, while the driver remains seated right up in front.
