Unveiled ahead of the Tokyo Motor Show, the Nissan BladeGlider EV Concept looks a little strange from above (like a Sbarro single slice box) but it makes sense when you consider the features. Said to have its "conceptual roots" in the visuals of a glider and a "swept wing aircraft," the wedge-shaped BladeGlider has a front wheel base of only one meter which reduces drag and improves maneuverability when paired with the 30/70 weight distribution. The car holds three in a triangular formation, but the driver's seat is really where it's at. Check out the interior view and you'll see what we mean. Better yet, check out the video below and watch what happens when the doors lift up.
