The futuristic looking car is a “deltoid-shape vehicle with a narrow front track that challenges the orthodoxy that has dominated the roads since the earliest days of the internal combustion engine,” Nissan said in a press release.

In other words, the vehicle only features one seat in the front, unlike the traditional car with two.

“The goal was to revolutionize the architecture of the vehicle to provoke new emotions, provide new value and make visible for consumers how Zero Emissions can help redefine our conception of vehicle basics,” Francois Bancon, who led the project, said.

“BladeGlider has its conceptual roots in the soaring, silent, panoramic freedom of a glider and the triangular shape of a high performance “swept wing” aircraft, looking to achieve low drag while generating road-hugging downforce,” Nissan added in its press release.

The “BladeGlider” is also a zero-emissions vehicle, according to Nissan.
