Will the Nissan IDx concept ever make production?



The Nissan IDx concept car debuted to much fanfare at the Tokyo Motor Show. It excited auto enthusiasts because it pulled design cues from the classic Datsun 510. People also were convinced that it would eventually go to production since the concept itself was drivable. As time has soldiered on, there has been a change of tune.

Nissan has put away the IDx concepts in favor of the 2016 Titan. That isn't great news for the IDx. No mention and no sighting of the IDx at NAIAS this year probably signals that Nissan has moved its focus elsewhere. We don't know much because Nissan has been mum on the issue, but the silence speaks volumes.

Another aspect that could shed light on what happened to the IDx is the departure of former Infiniti CEO Johan de Nysschen, who was a supporter of the IDx. He left to Cadillac, and Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn has been less friendly about a production IDx in interviews.

Perhaps the Nissan IDx concept was always just a design concept. Maybe we will see elements of it in future Nissan vehicles.

There is a small chance that the IDx is going through a redesign in preparation for a more viable production version, but as I said before, Nissan's silence speaks volumes.

I just have a feeling they want to make a production version, only that they're waiting for the right time for these types of cars to have a real marketplace and real potential. Right now isn't the right time.

i remember them saying they`re looking for volume products
and the idx is too much of a micro niche product right now


we`ll have to keep waiting
