10. Nissan Lania Concept
The second concept to come from Nissan‘s Chinese design studio, the Lannia concept debuted at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show and was billed as a follow-up to the brand’s Friend-Me show car from 2013. The sedan sports a futuristic design drawing styling cues from recent Nissan models such as the 2015 Murano with prominent features such as the brand’s V-motion grille and boomerang headlights. Overall, the Lannia was designed to appeal to the younger generation of Nissan consumers in China, or what they refer to as the “Post-80s” generation.
“The Lannia concept exudes ‘daqi,'” explained Taiji Toyota, the head of Nissan’s Chinese design studio, in a statement. “Daqi is a Chinese word that is hard to define but that has the strength to push people towards better things.”
