The Nissan Weave concept is a creation of Singapore based
designer Nigel Chen. The concept is designed specifically
for the high-rise urban settings of large cities and high
population density areas - like Singapore.
The Republic of Singapore, is an island country consisting
of 4.8 million people within the city-state. As a city
state, spanning 26 miles (42 km) in overall length, 10.5
miles (17 km) in width and an overall land area of 273
square miles (704 km2) , building space is scarcely limited,
thus high rise buildings make up the largest segment of
property development to house the majority of the population.
As car ownership increases, so do the problems for motorists.
In the coming years more and more cities across the world
are due to start imposing tariffs, such as carbon emission
tax and congestion charges, to reduce traffic numbers.
The Weave, is designed with these factors in mind.
The Nissan Weave concept is a plug-in electric car that
has a 1+1 tandem seating configuration with a very small
overall footprint to weave through traffic and tight spots
within cities. The almost 360 degree glasshouse of the
Weave also helps the driver to easily navigate through
The driving range per charge of the Weave is 45 miles
(70km), which is easily sufficient for daily commutes
to and from work.
The attractive and unique styling of the Nissan Weave
concept helps to prove that just because a vehicle is
an environmentally friendly city car it doesn't have to
Entry to the Weave concept is through a pair of scissor
opening doors, which double as the the side windows when
closed. Inside are the tandem seats which are each surrounded
by their own protective hoops built into the body. The
dash display of the Nissan Weave concept consist of a
full digital display.
