GENEVA, Switzerland (4 March, – Demonstrating innovation and excitement in component, the Nissan BladeGlider its European debut at the 2014 Motor Show. Nissan’s sports concept will conventional thinking on sports car handling, braking and weight The Nissan BladeGlider features a front narrow track where the front is significantly than the rear, creating a profile when seen directly above the vehicle.

unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Japan, in November 2013, technology follows in the footsteps of ZEOD RC Zero Emission on racecar (ZEOD RC), will participate at next Le Mans “Garage 56″ event the narrow front-track design. of Nissan Motorsport Innovation, Ben the designer of the ZEOD RC, also during the development of the BladeGlider.

you see the narrow front track for the first time, everyone is on how the car will handle,” said “The concept has proved on the race track running as as the overall contenders. And I’m sure the will meet with the initial skepticism, but we know, extensive testing on the racetrack race drivers behind the the Nissan BladeGlider has the potential to be the handling production car in the world.”

Bowlby outlined the performance of the BladeGlider’s narrow front-track/wide design.

The weight of the BladeGlider makes it ideal for efficient launches from a and intense acceleration once off the The primary reason for this is the rear tires are considerably than the front tires, in more traction at the rear, the tires to get a better grip on the surface.

Also, the wide track allows for virtually all of the heavier components-including the two in-board lithium ion batteries and passengers-to sit the rear tires; hence, of the cars’ weight (70 percent in case) sits directly on the two wheels. Therefore, when the is sent to the rear wheels, the BladeGlider exhibits very tire slip, allowing the tires to bite into the surface and launch the car in a highly manner.

Thanks to the BladeGlider’s extremely front end, which the skinny 100/80 tires, air is minimal. The BladeGlider features one of the Cds ever for a concept road allowing the car to “glide” to speed little air resistance.

Another to the car’s narrow front end is Thanks to less hardware and components, the BladeGlider’s overall weight is considerably less that of a similar size car a conventional front end.

The impressive, and most remarkable, the BladeGlider has over its conventional is handling. While traditional enthusiast may scratch their heads wondering how a car with a narrow front track can corners; the answer is relatively The narrow front track of the allows less weight to be on the front wheels.

While say that more weight on the tires equals better the complete opposite is actually Sure, with super tires, extra load may in more grip, but this is not an solution, nor is it always true. For front-heavy cars are prone to understeer – the loss of grip at the wheels, where the car does not as much as the steering demands.

The thinner tires up front the BladeGlider to turn in crisply only 30 percent of the car’s weight rests upon An added benefit is improved in terms of effort, feel and

Also, the narrow front allows the car to have minimal weight transfer through at both the front and rear Cars with wider tracks dramatically shift weight to the outside tire turning, leaving the inside to do virtually nothing. Thus, one tire is steering the car through a but with the BladeGlider, both stay in good contact the road surface and share the same cornering load, working as one unit.

And thanks to the independent suspension each tire’s effectiveness is through turns.

The wide track and wide rear also contribute to the BladeGlider’s handling. By providing a stable and foundation for the car, they the car’s front tires to point the nose of the vehicle in the direction. Think of a sledge and its handle.

Put the hammer on the ground and the handle in the desired direction. It can be with relatively little because the head of the hammer is a stable foundation. This effect of the BladeGlider can be enhanced torque vectoring (or an enhanced slip differential) that can be into the in-wheel motors, the rear tires to help the car’s nose.

Unlike road vehicles, the rear of the BladeGlider do more work the front brakes when the car down; therefore, they are and more powerful than the brakes (the opposite is in all other road cars). provides a tremendous advantage braking from high as the wider tires, which most of the car’s weight on provide excellent traction decelerating. With the rear doing most of the work acceleration and braking, and the front providing grip through the overall performance workload at the points of contact is distributed the front tires steer the the rear tires propel and the car.

With the driver sitting in the of the cockpit and near the rear the BladeGlider’s chassis relays and immediate feedback to the driver. when the car’s front or tires lose grip, the lets you know immediately, the driver ample time to car’s trajectory.

Another benefit is tire wear, or thereof. Each rear and each front tire are an equal amount of work (as above), so their wear is also equal. Conventional frequently suffer from tire wear, but the BladeGlider require a tire change as as a conventional car, especially subjected to aggressive, spirited
