Nissan North American Vice President of Product Planning Pierre Liong recently said a production version of the IDx concept might not be "worth it" but Nissan's Corporate Vice President of Product Planning has now rebuffed his statements.

Talking to CarAdvice, Keno Kato said the model is "under preparation and development" but is still a 50/50 shot until it is officially green-lighted. Kato went on to suggest that Liong doesn't know what's he talking about because he is "under me" and Andy Palmer "is my boss" and has already said "we definitely will do one" of the iDX concepts.

Despite confirming that a production model is still under consideration, Kato said the biggest problem is deciding on which platform to use. Kato went on to say the model must be affordable because the Toyota 86 is "expensive enough to reject young people to access."
