Nissan has quite a diverse lineup ready for the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show this year. There are a few familiar faces in tow like the Gripz concept and updated Leaf. However, the true debut among this group is the quirky Teatro for Dayz concept (pictured above) that imagines the ultimate vehicle for young people.

According to Nissan, the Teatro for Dayz is designed for the so-called digital native generation – basically those with the Internet widely available from birth. On the outside, the EV concept actually evokes a modernized take on theCube with its boxy, angular shape. The oddly named concept wears some of the brand’s current styling cues, though, like the V-shaped grille and LEDs slashing through the headlights. The squared-off rear features taillights running all the way across and lower lights that echo the ones in front. The interior is just a simple expanse of white with front and rear bench seats, but layout meant to allow social-media-obsessed occupants to express themselves through digital displays.

Meanwhile, the Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo goes on display in Tokyo with a few tweaks. This GT-R of the digital future now wears a coat of Fire Knight red paint and gets a more prominent V-shaped grille in front. The original version debuted at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
