Nissan Chief Planning Officer Andy Palmer previously said the company would "definitely" build one of their IDx concepts but now it appears the company is changing their tune.

In an interview with Wards Auto, Nissan North America Vice President of Product Planning Pierre Loing said creating a production IDx might not be worth the hassle. As he explained, “It’s not easy" to create an affordable rear-wheel drive sports because the volumes wouldn't make sense unless you also use the platform for something else.. He went on to say "Frankly to do a platform for 50,000 or 60,000 [units] a year – it’s not worth it."

Loing said the company is still debating a production version of the IDx but it definitely won't arrive by 2016 - assuming it is green-lighted in the first place.
