Report: Nissan IDx, Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge, and BladeGlider projects put on hold

It seems Nissan just gobbled down a massive serving of boring as AutomotiveNews reports the Japanese automaker put all of its rather exciting projects on hold. These include the Nissan IDx, Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge, and their BladeGlider projects.

The plan is to focus their efforts on volume cars, meaning more awful things like the Versa, instead of cars that would otherwise define the brand’s character.

The Nissan IDx was originally slated to be a new rear-wheel drive entry-level sedan to compete with the likes of the Scion FR-S/Toyota GT-86–meaning, it would’ve most likely been really fun to drive. Another knock off the brand’s fun factor is the supposed cancellation of the Infiniti Q60 Eau Rouge, which was a pitch at a competitor to the BMW M3.
