As you probably know, carmakers will have to figure out a way to make the V8-, V10-, V12- and W16-less future somehow “exciting”, and one way forward apparently is to overcompensate with buzzwords such as “digital”, “connectivity”, “sustainability”, “NFT”, “V2X”, “AI”, “autonomous”, and so on. Also, we’ve been seeing wacky EV concepts lately, and the latest one is the Nissan Max-Out EV Convertible Concept.
If you remember, it was originally presented in a virtual form as part of the four concepts the company revealed in November 2021—as part of the Nissan Ambition 2030 Vision announcements. For reasons not stated in the official press release, Nissan decided to build a physical model of the Max-Out concept and showcase it as part of the Nissan Futures event held earlier this month.
So, what’s all the hoopla? Well, again, Nissan didn’t bother explaining the concept, but as you can probably tell, the Max-Out is a futuristic two-door electric roadster concept. It has got displays at the front and rear fascias, and what appears to be a circular display on the wheels as well, but I’m not entirely sure.
On the inside too, the dashboard has a full-width display showing some crazy graphics; a rectangular steering with what appears to be a built-in display; strange-looking seats, and all kinds of “futuristic” stuff. Nissan classifies this as a roadster, suggesting that this is an open-top roadster with no convertible roof mechanism.
