Snowmobile Converting Cars

The Nissan 300Zki Makes It So That Snow Blizzards Aren't a Road Worry

— February 6, 2018 — Autos
Nissan has obliterated the blizzard and winter tire stress with the Nissan 300Zki -- a functional snowmobile converting car. The model is based on the 370Z Roadster and its transformation to a vehicle, apt for the toughest of winter terrains, was no easy task. The technicians had to remove the engine and the transmission, in order to install the winter-confronting hardware, as well as "modify the suspension and the rear wheel arches" prior to placement of tracks and skis.

The performance of the 332 horsepower snowmobile converting car was tested in Wyoming, where "its performance heritage really came through." Although Nissan is debuting the 300Zki at the Chicago Auto Show, the model is one-off concept car and is not an upcoming production model, but could definitely serve as inspiration for the auto enthusiast.
Trend Themes
1. Winter-ready Car Modifications - There is an opportunity to develop or market winter car modifications that allow for cars to be converted into snowmobiles and thus be better equipped for winter terrains.
2. Hybrid Snowmobile-car Models - Auto manufacturers can explore creating hybrid models that combine a car and a snowmobile for a unique and functional winter driving experience.
3. Winter Sport Vehicle Innovation - Winter sport vehicle manufacturers can look to Nissan's innovative snowmobile converting car to inspire and develop new products that push the limits of winter driving and adventure.
Industry Implications
1. Auto Manufacturing - Auto manufacturers can explore creating hybrid models that combine a car and a snowmobile for a unique and functional winter driving experience.
2. Winter Sports - Winter sport vehicle manufacturers can look to Nissan's innovative snowmobile converting car to inspire and develop new products that push the limits of winter driving and adventure.
3. Automotive Aftermarket - There is an opportunity for aftermarket car modification companies to develop winter-confronting hardware that allows for cars to be converted into snowmobiles and thus be better equipped for winter terrains.
