Nissan showed off the new Lannia Concept at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show last weekend, a car designed to create new trends and appeal to the Chinese “post-80s” generation.
It’s not easy to describe, so that’s already one checked box in the trendsetting section. It looks somewhat like a fastback from behind, except for the small rear deck and the overall sedan-like appearance. What we can say with certainty is that it is one eye-catching piece of design.
According to Andy Palmer, Nissan’s Chief Planning Officer, the Lannia Concept was “designed by Chinese, built by Chinese for the Chinese people, and ultimately, for the world.”
More specifically, it was designed with the “post-80s” trendsetters in mind, which we imagine means the fashionable portion of China’s population that was born after the 1980s.
There’s no details yet as to what to expect from the engine, transmission, or interior, but as Palmer stated, we do at least know that it’ll eventually make its way to the United States. We hope it won’t be too long before it finally arrives at Lewis Nissan!
