On January 14th, Nissan debuted an all-new concept car at the North American International Auto Show. Called the Nissan IMs, this electric car is completely different than the Nissan Leaf, the brand's additional electric model. When we first took a look at photos of this new Nissan here at our Nissan dealership, we were blown away by its sharp appearance and capabilities.
