At a special event hosted in Lisbon, Nissan has unveiled a new concept based on the first generation Murano named the EA2 which features new innovative X-by-Wire technology.

The new technology removes the mechanical linkages between the driver  and key driving systems such as the steering, braking and transmission and replaces it with electrical impulses therefore allowing the removal of the mechanical systems giving greater flexibiity for the vehicle designers.

The benefits of the technology are clear to see in this concept, with the increased internal space allowing enough room for a third row of seating. Lets also not forget the reduced weight advantages increasing the performance,economy and emmissions. However questions will still need to be asked on the reliability of the system, if the any of these systems fail  such as the steering, it would be a huge safety risk for the driver and occupants.
