Consumer Reports auto experts report from the 2010 LA Auto Show in Los Angeles.
Nissan Ellure concept
What is it? Intended as a styling exercise, the Nissan Ellure concept suggests the designed direction for future sedans. Further, it explores ways to enhance aerodynamics by minimizing body openings and seams.

The smooth-and-conceal theme carries inside, with hidden audio system speakers embedded in doors and headrests, and armrest touch controls with haptic feedback. The five-passenger Ellure features a full tinted glass roof with red accent lighting intended to give the cabin a different feel after dark.

The drivetrain is conceived as a supercharged 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder, augmented by a 25 kW electric motor and lithium-ion battery. The car uses a continuously variable transmission and is configured with front-wheel drive.
