DETROIT – This week the Nissan Resonance was selected as winner of the EyesOn Design Award for Best Concept Vehicle. The announcement came just hours after the unveiling of the design concept at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) held in Detroit.
The Resonance concept was created under the guidance of Shiro Nakamura, senior vice president and chief creative officer of Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., and features an efficient, hybrid-electric drivetrain that includes Nissan's proprietary "one-motor, two-clutch" system. That system combines a smaller displacement internal combustion gasoline engine with an electric motor, lithium-ion battery and advanced management system.
One of the premier awards in transportation design, the EyesOn Design Awards honors the best production and concept cars making their North American or worldwide debut at NAIAS. Winners are selected by a panel of active and retired design heads of automotive companies, transportation design chairs from top art schools, and designers from other fields.
