Nissan Motor Co. has shown a glimpse of a concept car sketches to reporters last week, a preview of what could be expected from the carmaker's next product offering. Nissan global design chief Shiro Nakamura described the car only as a four-door sedan concept that will bear a signature "V-motion" front-end design and headlight treatment for the brand.

According to Nakamura, Nissan will unveil the concept car in January 2015 at the Detroit auto show. He, however, would not confirm if sketches are the plan for the redesigned Maxima that due next year as a 2015 model. The Maxima had been left of Nissan's redesigning process in the past few years as the carmaker focused on reworking its smaller and less expensive sedans -- the Altima, Sentra and Versa.

The Maxima, which is considered as the largest and most expensive of Nissan's cars, has yet to be redesigned, and lacks a number of features its smaller siblings have like new technologies and fuel economy gains. This has lead to some speculations that the increased size and marketing emphasis on the redesigned Altima is part of the Japanese carmaker's plans to phase out the Maxima.

The concept sketches, however, points to larger sedan for Nissan. If the concept car indeed points to the Maxima, then the sedan would a sportier tapered rear roofline and new front-end design and headlight treatment, Nissan sold 27,710 Maximas in the first seven months of 2013, compared to 35,222 in same period 2012.
