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.
