They even do a little dance at the end to celebrate their accomplishment in
creating what looks to be Nissan’s next electric vehicle, a CUV/SUV.

In preparation for the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, which opens to the media
starting October 25, Nissan is showing off a bit more of what appears to be
its future LEAF-based electric CUV/SUV.

We first came across this embiggened LEAF just a week ago when Nissan put
out a teaser video [
] featuring a darkened silhouette ... of what appeared to be a bulkier LEAF.
Now, we see robots carving out what seems to be the same vehicle out of a
block of the white stuff.

What do we know of this electric CUV/SUV? Nothing other than it should
launch in 2019, likely be LEAF-based and will come to the segment with an
affordable price. Beyond that, we’ll have to wait until at least tomorrow
for more details – hopefully ‘this’ is ‘that’ vehicle!

The front end of the prototype looks complete at 0:26 (seconds). Then at
0:28 when the robots begin dancing it is a different prototype with a
different front end.
Strange. Which front end is the actual design I wonder. The one at the end
looks weird. The one before 0:28 looks more like a Nissan with the drop down
chrome inverted truncated triangle.

    My impression is that the model is rotated 180 degrees several times,
and we are looking at the back end some of the time ...
