Nissan's new Xmotion concept stands out from other concept vehicles with its stunning design, inspired by Nissan's Japanese heritage.

The Xmotion concept, which made its world debut today at the 2018 North American International Auto Show, signals the future direction of Nissan SUV design and was inspired by traditional Japanese craftsmanship. In a nod to that past, Nissan has invited craftspeople from Kyoto, Japan's GO ON project to demonstrate several ancient techniques during the show.

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.

ProPILOT Park Ryokan | Inspired by Nissan ProPILOT Park


Combining the ultimate in traditional hospitality with Nissan’s autonomous driving technology, one Japanese inn is treating guests to some unusual amenities: self-parking slippers, tables and floor cushions.

At first glance, the ProPILOT Park Ryokan looks like any other traditional Japanese inn, or ryokan. Slippers are neatly lined up at the foyer, where guests remove their shoes. Tatami rooms are furnished with low tables and floor cushions for sitting.

What sets this ryokan apart is that the slippers, tables and cushions are rigged with a special version of Nissan’s ProPILOT Park autonomous parking technology. When not in use, they automatically return to their designated spots at the push of a button.

First introduced in the all-new Nissan LEAF in Japan in October 2017, ProPILOT Park detects surrounding objects and lets drivers automatically park the vehicle in a selected parking space by pressing a button. The same technology is being used in the amenities at the ProPILOT Park Ryokan during a demonstration to entertain guests and reduce staff workload.
