Nissan’s entry to the LA Auto Show Design Challenge is iV. In 2010, the innovative Nissan LEAF is introduced as the first mass-market electric vehicle (EV), planting seeds for Nissan’s vision of a zero-emissions future. Nissan boasts a biopolymer frame which is made of fast-growing ivy and a spider silk composite. Every detail of the Nissan iV is engineered toward renewable, lightweight strength and maximum efficiency. Featuring an interwoven organic frame, iV’s chassis material is synthetically grown and formed into a stunning, aerodynamic shape.
