Nissan Resonance Concept: Photo Gallery

NissanCrossoverConceptNAIAS

Nissan says designers of the Resonance were inspired by the "future allure of hypersonic travel," and though the hybrid crossover concept won't break the sound barrier, its influence likely will resonate in models to come. Showing off its sci-fi-friendly features along with fuel-economy-boosting airflow management, the Resonance — a possible precursor to the next-generation Murano — bows this week at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Everything about the Resonance looks ahead to the world of tomorrow. Its 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine mates with a hybrid electric drive system and Nissan's next-gen Xtronic continuously variable automatic transmission. Although a 3-D holographic center console screen is unlikely to find its way to production, it sure is cool to see in the here-and-now.

Check out the gallery below for a further glimpse into the future.

Have you looked around, most cars sold in North American are been built here or assembled in North America. I understand your point about jobs and creating jobs. Do you know how many jobs are in the US? Just because car manufactures from all over the World want to sell us their cars? Whether they are build here or not. Assembling them or building them in the USA is not the entire picture. Cars need lots of attention after they are delivered by the manufactory to the dealers.

Can someone actually purchase the proto-type? It must have gotten somehow to the auto show....or are those cars being towed and then pushed into the building? Any response is welcome to:
