To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Nissan Design Europe (NDE) being located in London, Makoto Uchida, Nissan's President and Chief Executive Officer, visited the organisation to attend the unveiling of the all-new electric concept car called the Nissan Concept 20-23. The car certainly looks like it’s an evolution of the much-loved and super-popular compact hatchback, the Micra. The concept car was designed by a team that included some of the younger members of NDE who worked to a simple brief to design a car that they’d personally want to drive around the streets where they work, and the best and quite evident part is that there were no constraints - anything and any design was allowed. The name, Concept 20-23, comes from NDE being in London for 20 years and then Nissan's traditional number 2 (ni) 3 (san), as well as the current year. "The young team here at NDE was given a simple brief: design a fun electric city car that you'd like to drive every day in London. The 20-23 Concept that they designed is a compact hatchback which is strongly influenced by the online racing world. I love the story it tells about how the worlds of modern city living, online gaming and zero emissions mobility intersect." said Alfonso Albaisa, Nissan's Senior Vice President for global design.
