Nissan

is offering the slimmest of teasers for a new

concept vehicle

set to bow at the

Detroit Auto Show

next week. The automaker says only that it “embodies the future of

Nissan

Intelligent Mobility,” releasing a short video featuring animation of industrial processes, some futuristic-looking shapes and patterns that might be body panels. We get a brief look at part of the vehicle’s profile lines, showing a relatively straight beltline and swooping roof.

We know the concept will be an

electric vehicle

from an

interview in November with Nissan’s head designer, Alfonso Albaisa

, who told

Autoblog

at the

Los Angeles Auto Show

that both Nissan and luxury division

Infiniti

would bring concept

EVs

to Detroit. Albaisa said the concepts would feature a new generation of battery that is more energy-dense and thinner, freeing up more space inside the cabins and further exploring ideas expressed by last year’s

Infiniti Q Inspiration

concept.

Infiniti

has

already teased its Detroit-bound concept

, which is called the QX — an electric

crossover

perhaps most notable for lacking a grille. Our guess would be that this is also a

crossover

.

As for the

Nissan Intelligent Mobility

part of the equation, we can perhaps take some clues from the far-out, VR-enabled “Invisible-to-Visible” technology Nissan

showed earlier this week at CES

. Or it could be some advanced iteration of its

ProPilot driver-assist technology

. Or something else entirely. We’ll learn more when the wraps come off on Monday.
