Pininfarina Nido Concept 

  • 2004
To maximise the effectiveness of the Nido principle, the space normally taken up by the steering column and traditional pedal box has been freed up by the use of a 'steer and brake by wire' system, which means that these components no longer intrude into the passenger compartment and also allow the use of a spokeless steering wheel.
The interior trim and fittings were not simply designed for style, but have been developed in consideration of the impact dynamics of the occupants during an accident.

Pininfarina Nido Concept
This concept was in fact conceived through an intense collaboration between design and engineering, two poles often opposed, with the singular goal of creating an attractive, small and safe vehicle.
The overall architecture of the car was also chosen for functionality: the single-box shape allows more room for the motion of the sled shell and conveys an impression of a protective 'nest' (nido in Italian) surrounding the occupants.
