Nissan Executive Vice President Andy Palmer has confirmed the company is still considering a sports car in the same vein as the Emerg-E concept.

In an interview with Auto Express, Palmer said “There’s room in the mid-term plan for a halo car of the Emerg-E nature." He added the "design execution still needs some discussion" but "yes, you can see a halo car in our future." When pushed for more details, the executive said the model would need to be "progressive" and he would expect it to use a hybridized powertrain.

Palmer also reiterated his desire to offer an electric vehicle with a wireless recharging system. He declined to say when the car would arrive but the model was originally slated to go on sale in 2015 before it was delayed.
