Japan’s Nissan Motor Co. is set to showcase its ideas for the future of electric vehicles at its Global Headquarters in Yokohama at an event called “Nissan Futures” from February 4 through March 1, the company said.
The highlight of the event may well be the physical iteration of the concept model of its Max-Out EV. The virtual unveiling in 2021 at the Nissan Ambition 2030 event sparked sustained interest in what elements of that vehicle might make it to market.
The physical Max-Out concept car that will be available for viewing at the Nissan Futures event is a two-seater convertible. The company is short on details in both its 2023 statement and YouTube video, except to say that the vehicle was “Created on the fundamental concept of being one with the car, the Nissan Max-Out two-seater convertible is designed to provide a liberating sense of openness while offering an enhanced, dynamic driving experience. The Max-Out displays Nissan’s innovation to develop a diverse range of advanced and striking vehicles, with a clear vision of how they can benefit both individuals and society.”

The Nissan Futures event will also feature panel discussions with experts, and various displays, all aimed to exhibit its innovations in electrification, vehicle intelligence, power management, vehicle batteries, and more. For those who can’t make it in person, the events and panel discussions will be available virtually.
Specific features planned for the event will be a panel on February 21 on its Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) program, which refers to battery reuse initiatives as well as Nissan’s “Through Talk 4 Futures.” There, the company will host discussions with experts in sustainability, economics, innovation and culture to be held weekly on Saturdays.
The event display and content information are now available on the Nissan global corporate website and will be showcased on its YouTube and LinkedIn channels.
