Nissan Nails

This pastel-hued cutie hails from all the way back in 2001, if you can believe it. In a time when social networking was yet to explode, the Nails concept was designed with friendly communication at its core; it had mobile phones and comms devices integrated into its wacky interior. Whilst the continued popularity of both pick-up trucks and urban runabouts wasn't hard to predict, Nissan did well to combine the two in a way that was simultaneously adorable and slightly aggressive, and the pre-empting of the all-pervading nature of social media was a masterstroke. If they were to offer this to market today, it'd probably do rather well...
