Nissan Leaf Grand Touring Concept Joins A Flurry Of Tuned Studies For 2018 Tokyo Auto Salon

Nissan has announced a bunch of premieres for next year’s Tokyo Auto Salon, which opens its gates on January 12, one of them being the Leaf Grand Touring Concept.

The show car is not as aggressively styled as the Leaf Nismo that debuted two months ago, but it does get a few interesting bits, such as the two-tone black and matte silver finish.

No images of the interior have been released yet, but the automaker describes it as “stylish and sophisticated” thanks to the addition of some special accents. We wouldn’t be surprised if some of these features will be adopted by a new trim level of the electric car called ‘Grand Touring’, in the Japan at least.

The ‘Grand Touring‘ moniker has been used again on an X-Trail Concept, which will go under the spotlight at the Tokyo event as well. This version of the SUV, which is known on our shores as Rogue, is aimed at those loving the outdoors, and it gets a special exterior graphic, and some different trim in the cabin.

There’s also a Nissan NV 350 Caravan Grand Touring Concept heading to the 2018 Tokyo Auto Salon, which goes for an ‘off-road look’ as well, equipped with BF Goodrich all-terrain tires, special exterior accents and decals, and minor tweaks inside.

Nissan has a few more surprises in store too for the event, including the Fairlady Z Heritage Edition, a special version of the 370Z, the Note e-Power C-Gear, an “outdoor version” of the vehicle, and three new concept cars called Serena e-Power Autech, Note e-Power Autech, and X-Trail Autech.

Elsewhere, visitors to the brand’s stand will also get to see the GT-R Nismo, Note e-Power Nismo, X-Trail Nismo Performance Package, Serena Nismo, Leaf Nismo Concept, and Motul Autech GT-R racer.
