Nissan TeRRA SUV Concept near Chicago IL
Nissan TeRRA SUV Concept near Chicago IL
The Nissan TeRRA SUV Concept was introduced at the 2012 Paris Auto Show. The idea was to create a sustainable car using a renewable fuel source that could go off-road. Concept cars are never meant to be mass-produced, but elements of these cars are developed further and incorporated into other car models. The 107-horsepower engine can be found in the Nissan Leaf. The two in-wheel engines in the rear wheels came from another Nissan concept car, the Pivo. With a zero-emission standard, the hydrogen-fueled 4 x 4 fuel cell electric powertrain only needs more hydrogen fueling stations to become a reality.

Some innovative Nissan TeRRA SUV news to Chicagoland shoppers is the interior. First, the rear side door opens toward the back for easier loading of large items. Then, because of the two in-wheel rear wheel engines, there is no need for a drive shaft to go down through the center of the car. That means the floor of the car is flat; there is no center hump. This allows for two major interior re-designs. First, the front passenger seat along with the two rear passenger seats can all be folded down allowing for more cargo space. Second, the interior seating has been re-arranged. The driver's seat has been moved closer to the center of the vehicle, giving the driver a better view. The front passenger seat is to the right and slightly behind the driver seat. The rear seats follow the same pattern allowing all passengers a better view and making the interior more spacious. To emphasize the eco-friendly concept, there is blond and beech wood trim on all four sides of the interior just below a shoulder-high metal frame. The wood and metal along with colored acrylic give the interior of the Nissan TeRRA SUV a warm and modern feel. A Chicago area review would not be complete without mentioning the innovative instrument panel/information, navigation, and entertainment system. A dockable tablet performs all of these functions in the car. It displays the speedometer and all the other gauges that you expect on the dashboard along with a 5.8-inch touch screen, a 4.3-inch LCD display, keyless access, hands-free texting, Bluetooth/USB connectivity, Pandora Link support system, and an AM/FM CD player. The tablet can also be removed and used like a regular tablet outside the vehicle.

Words that describe the exterior of the Nissan TeRRA SUV Concept would include athletic, aggressive, tough, and cubic. It has large, sturdy tires for gripping, wide bold black metal strips around the windows, round headlights with fog lights, and pronounced fender's that contour in to a slimmer silhouette and then curve out again. It is stylish enough for the city and bold enough for off-road driving.
Here is the big Nissan TeRRA SUV news to Chicagoland. The Nissan TeRRA has three electric motors with a 4 x 4 zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell stack. The 107-horsepower engine in the front powers the front wheels. Then, there are two in-wheel engines in the rear wheels. The hydrogen fuel cell stack has a power density of 2.5kW/L, which gives it enough power for off-road driving. A good network of hydrogen fueling stations is all that is needed to move the Nissan TeRRA from a concept car to a mass-produced car.
The Nissan TeRRA SUV Concept offers AWD, cruise control, and anti-lock brakes. The absence of the drive shaft to the rear wheels makes it lighter and more aerodynamic. In the Chicago area, request Nissan TeRRA SUV information from Woodfield Nissan.
