Now don’t go getting too excited. Sadly it won’t be coming to the U.S. anytime soon if at all. But either way it is too cool of a concept to not talk about. The new Nissan EXTREM is a crossover that is being planned for launch in Sao Pualo, Brazil. This concept marks the first ever vehicle that is being created specifically for Brazil.
“Brazil is a country of great natural beauty and it has a passionate, rich culture. But this is not always reflected in the cars on its streets, especially the more affordable locally produced vehicles which tend to be conservative in design, color and specification,” said Shiro Nakamura, Senior Vice President and Chief Creative Officer.
“EXTREM, with a dynamic, high-character design, is far from conservative. It was created to appeal to the country’s growing band of city-based young professionals who are passionate about design and want to make a personal statement. The lightweight two-door 2+2, has a dynamic stance, fresh surfacing, and a clear rugged ability to tackle the urban jungle everyday,” he added.
The design is based off of the Brazilian culture and energy. The Nissan EXTREM is a new genre of vehicles under the urban compact sports car category. The EXTREM will be powered by Nissan’s direct injection 1.6 Liter DIG-T engine that is turbocharged, a similar engine to that of the Nissan Juke.
