“The new and innovative Car Culture area will feature interactive vignettes, highlighting themed lifestyles and the vehicles that drive them.”

The Nissan BladeGlider concept will contribute to the promised sizzle at the upcoming all-new Vancouver International Auto show – now just under three weeks away.

This revolutionary electric car, based on the DeltaWing race car introduced a few years ago, is described by the manufacturer as an “exploratory prototype of an upcoming production vehicle.”

Just like the DeltaWing, the BladeGlider features a very different chassis layout – narrow at the front, wide at the rear. The design gives the vehicle a huge aerodynamic advantage of a traditional layout. The roadster has a centrally located driver seat upfront and two passenger seats behind.

It’s the first of a number of concepts to be announced for the show at the Vancouver Convention Centre, which runs from Tuesday, March 24 through Sunday, March 29. Hundreds of new production cars will populate the all-new floor layout of exhibition space. The show floor is growing 25 percent to almost 28,000 square metres by taking over the Ballrooms.

Presented by the New Car Dealers Association of BC, the 95th Vancouver International Auto Show is the premier showcase for car enthusiasts, providing the best opportunity of the year to see some of the world’s most popular brands alongside exciting new features and displays.

New features at this year’s event include the return of Exotic Manufacturers, Electric Avenue, and a showcase of the newest and most innovative green vehicles and technologies. That area includes a 100 percent electric powered Bigfoot monster truck. The new and innovative Car Culture area will feature interactive vignettes, highlighting themed lifestyles and the vehicles that drive them. Custom built and modified hot rods, super cars and luxury vehicles will be showcased. And this year marks the return of commercial vendors selling vehicle parts and accessories.

Driveway will profile many of the vehicles from the show immediately before the show opening.
