When we wrote about the Nissan IMx concept that appeared at the Tokyo motor show last year,
we said it would not use the LEAF chassis that has served the company so well.
But a new report by Autocar indicates that a production version of the IMx
all wheel drive electric SUV is scheduled to appear as early as 2020
and that it will be built on the LEAF chassis. Of course,
there is the possibility that Nissan has altered the chassis of the LEAF
somewhat for the second generation of the car.
Using the same chassis to build multiple models is the key to profitability in the car business.
