Nissan drops Juke on tracks for Tokyo Auto Salonby Ronan Glon
This isn't the first Nissan concept with tracks instead of wheels.
Nissan has announced its line-up for the 2019 Tokyo Auto Salon. The most interesting concept headed to the Japanese capital is a Juke dropped on tank-like tracks.
You might experience déjà vu after reading that last sentence. This isn't the first time Nissan has arrived at an auto show with a regular-production car dropped on tracks. We've previously seen the Rogue and the 370Z receive the same treatment. The Juke Personalization Adventure concept follows roughly the same recipe as its predecessors.
Starting with a regular-production Juke, a model still sold in a number of global markets, Nissan replaced the wheels with four tracks and fitted wide fender flares to make sure they don't stick out beyond the body. We know the Personalization Adventure concept comes with all-wheel drive and torque vectoring, but Nissan is keeping additional technical specifications -- like what's under the hood -- under wraps for the time being.
In case the tracks weren't subtle enough, Nissan gave the Juke a two-tone white and black paint job with bright green accents. It also receives protective covers over the headlights and a full roof rack. Photos of the interior haven't been released yet.
The Nissan Juke Personalization Adventure concept will make its debut in January 2019 at the Tokyo Auto Salon. It will share the spotlight with the Suzuki Jimny Sierra Pickup concept and the Subaru Forester STI e-Boxer, among other one-offs. Like previous Nissan on tracks, the Juke is merely a fun concept made for the event and it's not a preview of an upcoming production model.
