No, it’s not a flying car, but it does blend dragster and airplane design. The best thing about this futuristic concept design is that Nissan is suggesting it will actually make a real production run of this beauty.
According to Nissan:
“More than a concept, Nissan BladeGlider is both a proposal for the future direction of Nissan electric vehicle (EV) development and an exploratory prototype of an upcoming production vehicle from the world’s leading EV manufacturer. BladeGlider was developed with form following function. Nissan crafted the vehicle’s unique architecture to give the driver and passengers “sustainable exhilaration” — a fresh electric vehicle driving experience based on peerless technology and exotic styling.
BladeGlider has its conceptual roots in two aerial images: the soaring, silent, panoramic freedom of a glider and the triangular shape of a high performance “swept wing” aircraft.”
The BladeGlider will feature a spaceship style cockpit, upward opening wing doors, and in-wheel motors powered by lithium-ion batteries. The in-wheel motors will lower the car’s center of gravity for better control.
The BladeGlider will officially be unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show November 20th.

We want futuristic design and we want it now. We want our cars, homes and trains to feel like 2013 not 1913. We are ready to be excited again about driving and auto design. Let’s just hope the automakers deliver some exciting cars before we are all forced to sit in the backseat of our new driverless cars.
