Japanese carmaker Nissan has unveiled the Invitation concept car at the 82nd Geneva International Motor Show. The production car is expected to be launched in 2013 and will be built in Nissan's Sunderland plant in Britain.
The Invitation is a big five-seater hatchback with Honda Jazz-like design and similar proportions and will compete against the likes of Ford Fiesta and Volkswagen Polo. The car has combined advanced engine technology with a light weight platform and an aerodynamically efficient body to acquire ultra-low CO2 emission target of under 100g/km and class-leading fuel efficiency.
Moreover, Nissan has promised that the car would be of great fun to drive. The car also packs some of the most advanced technology features like advanced around-view monitor (AVM) safety technology (seen for the first time on a B-segment car) to make reversing and parallel parking stress-free and safety shield to keep the driver aware of what is happening around the car.
Aimed primarily at the European and American markets, the Nissan Invitation concept car will be showcased in other international motor shows before a production ready car is displayed. It is yet unclear of the Invitation will enter the Indian car market considering the Japanese carmaker is concentrating on building its sales on the basis of inexpensive yet efficient cars.
