The Nissan Bevel is a concept crossover SUV unveiled at the 2007 North American International Auto Show.

Carlos Tavares, Nissan Motor Co. executive president of global product planning and design, says the Bevel is a study for older men who like to keep lots of tools in their vehicle, transport things, do projects outside the house and only rarely carry passengers. The owner would be driving alone 90 percent of the time, Tavares imagines.

Tavares says Nissan has no specific plan to produce the Bevel, although 2010 is scheduled to become the Bevel's production date. It will probably replace the struggling Quest minivan, and will likely slot above the Murano in Nissan's crossover lineup.
