Nissan Resonance concept wins design award

The Resonance was named ‘Best Concept Vehicle’ by EyesOn Design on Tuesday evening.

The EyesOn Design awards are currently in their seventh year, and were started to honour the best production and concept cars making their North American or worldwide debut at the show.

Winners are selected from a panel of international design experts from automotive companies, leading art schools, transportation designers and more.

The hybrid crossover wowed critics at Detroit thanks to features including a holographic centre console and welcoming lights to give drivers a warm welcome when they enter the car. Nissan has described the Resonance’s interior as a ‘futuristic VIP lounge’.

But it was the car’s exterior design which really caught the panel’s attention. Nissan has opted for an athletic design with the Resonance, with the manufacturer incorporating a floating design for the car.

The car includes thin, steeply raked A-pillars, large full-length glass panel and flowing D-pillar design to create flowing lines throughout the car’s frame.

The car’s grille and bonnet features V-Motion design, which resonates with the car’s boomerang-shaped headlights. The new Nissan’s body colour, flare orange, complements the car’s Satin Chrome accents and 22-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.

“When the designers were first working on the Nissan Resonance, they were inspired by scientific advancements in technology and material innovations.

They also were inspired by the aspirations of those people who embrace innovation. It was about serving those people a concept vehicle that is forward-looking and fuses style with an athletic ride,” said Francois Bancon, Nissan Motor Co. division general manager, Product Strategy and Planning.
