Nissan-designed Santa’s sleigh

Published: 17 December 2008

Canadian designer Martin Uhlarik penned Nissan’s sleigh, which dispenses with reindeer altogether and can be used instead in conjunction with a rather faster steed, a Nissan GT-R. It’s quickly apparent that Nissan’s SC01 sledge will have a much greater load capacity than rival designs – and we’d certainly pull over fast if we saw this in our rear-view mirrors.

Uhlarik is project design leader at Nissan’s Paddington design centre in London and was senior exterior designer on the Qashqai+2 and NV200 concept. Before joining Nissan, he worked in the design departments at Skoda and Lotus. We wouldn’t be at all surprised if he was posted to Lapland next.
