Nissan INVITATION concept

The Nissan INVITATION concept , with expected sub-100 g/km emissions, will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show 2012 .

The hatchback concept previews the company’s next mainstream new model in the compact hatchback segment, to be sold alongside the Micra city car and Juke crossover.

The concept shows some of the innovation promised for the new model, which is due to be launched in the UK from 2013.

Combining advanced engine technology, Nissan’s lightweight platform and an aerodynamically efficient body mean INVITATION achieves class-leading levels of fuel efficiency and emissions. Nissan is aiming for an low CO 2 emission target of under 100 g/km for the most frugal model, with all versions eligible to wear Nissan’s Pure Drive badge.

The concept features Nissan’s advanced Around View Monitor (AVM) safety technology – seen for the first time on a B-segment car – which makes reversing and parallel parking as stress-free as possible.

INVITATION also incorporates the Nissan Safety Shield Technologies, which interacts with the driving environment keeping the driver aware of what is happening around the car.
