Nissan Unveiled a New Concept Car for Brazilian Market, the “Kicks” Concept http://www.japanesesportcars.com/nissan-kicks-concept-2014-brazil_35358.html http://www.japanesesportcars.com/nissan-kicks-concept-2014-brazil_35358.html#comments Wed, 29 Oct 2014 19:22:33 +0000 http://www.japanesesportcars.com/?p=35358 2014 Nissan Kicks Concept (Brazilian Market)

2014 Nissan Kicks Concept (Brazilian Market)

Nissan debuted at the 2014 Sao Paulo International Motor show, a new compact crossover concept called Kicks

The ideas behind the Nissan Kicks Concept was motivated by the streets of Brazil and its people.  According to Nissan, most cars on Brazilian roads are mainly painted in typical colors such black, silver and white, which don’t symbolize the high-spirited nature of the country and its people.  The Nissan Kicks Concept was meant to connect the conventional design with something more eccentric to bring out the unique character of Brazil and its people onto the streets.

“The main inspiration for this concept was the contrast that we saw in the grey tones of the urban settings in São Paulo and the bright natural colors that we saw near our studio in Rio,”

– said Nissan.

“How to combine these two, the more grey urban tones with the bright sunset orange that we would see – this combination we thought was really uniquely Brazilian.”

Nissan said that the idea of having the car that represents the country’s spirit is not just for the Brazilian market, but it will take the idea of Brazil for design improvement for the global market.
