The Nissan TeRRA SUV concept is to be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show later this month. According to the Japanese car giant the new car combines two outstanding Nissan strengths – SUVs and EVs – in a vehicle that is equally in its element off-road or gliding silently through the city. With an innovative 4x4 fuel-cell electric powertrain and an athletic exterior that has presence beyond its compact dimensions, TeRRA takes sustainable motoring into exciting new territory.
It says the TeRRA builds on Nissan's success with crossovers like the Juke and Qashqai, and its EV success with the LEAF.
It is designed as a functional and flexible choice for tomorrow's youthful, "always on" consumers, bringing with it eco-friendliness along with a secure driving feel under any road conditions.
"Our challenge was to take Nissan's strength in SUVs and crossovers forward into the zero-emissions era, fuel cells being our new frontier in zero emission mobility," said Francois Bancon, Nissan's division general manager of product strategy and planning.
