Nissan is making a big splash at the Los Angeles Auto Show with the unveiling of the Ellure concept.

Created to showcase the company's commitment to sedans, the Ellure features an aerodynamic design and four-door coupe styling. Notable highlights include a steeply raked windscreen, a glass roof, reverse opening rear doors, and 21-inch five-spoke aluminum wheels.

Inside, the cabin has a tri-color design theme, lounge-like rear seats, a front passenger "forward-facing ottoman", and a floating center console.

The concept doesn't have a powertrain, but Nissan envisions it would use a supercharged 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine and a 25 kW electric motor which would be paired to an Xtronic continually variable transmission (CVT). Furthermore, the Ellure would also have an independent suspension, regenerative brakes, and an advanced drive-by-wire electric/hydraulic steering system.
