DETROIT (Jan. 26, 2018) – The Nissan Xmotion concept, which made its world debut at the 2018 North American International Auto Show, signals the future direction of Nissan SUV design. Inspired by traditional Japanese craftsmanship, Xmotion stands out from other concept vehicles with design inspired by Nissan's Japanese heritage.
In a nod to that past, Nissan invited craftspeople from Kyoto, Japan's GO ON project to
demonstrate several ancient techniques during the auto show in Detroit. GO ON is a collaboration of Kyoto craftspeople who apply traditional techniques to create inspiring new designs with international appeal. The group takes pride in pushing the boundaries of their crafts and bringing "the poetry of Japanese design" to the world.
