We're not going to hide it: it was love at first sight when the Nissan IDx Nismo and IDx Freeflow was unveiled at the Tokyo Auto Show. Little details emerged since its debut in November of last year, but Australia's Drive.com.au has reported that the IDx is intended for production.

According to Drive, Nissan Executive vice president Andy Palmer spoke with media and revealed the carmaker's intent to ready the Nissan IDx concept for the market. More precisely, the rear-wheel-drive couple is aiming for a 2016 debut. However, it is unclear whether Nissan will produce both the IDx Nismo and IDx Freeflow.

"Don't say that we won't do both, but we will definitely do one of them," said Palmer. While the Nissan IDx Freeflow and IDx Nismo look similar, the two examples represent two different philosophies.

Starting from the engine, the IDx Freeflow's 1.2 liter gasoline engine is an exercise of efficiency and practicality. What's more, the Freeflow puts an emphasis on minimalist styling and simplicity, encouraging young enthusiasts to apply the Freeflow as a blank canvas to build into the cars they want.

On the other hand, the sharper Nissan IDx Nismo is lower and is slightly wider at 70.8 inches. The Nissan IDx Nismo Concept features a racier interior, fender flares, side exhaust, spoiler, and lightweight 19-inch wheels.

When the two models were introduced at the Tokyo Auto Show, Nissan claimed the IDx models will feature CVT transmissions with an artificial 6-speed manual shift mode and synchronized rev control. Now, Palmer announced that a conventional H-pattern manual gearbox isn't off the table. In the meantime, stay tuned as we learn more about the Nissan IDx models in the months ahead.
