The “live” premiere of the new concept of the Japanese brand will take place at the end of this month as part of the Japan Mobility Show.
Nissan, like many other global automakers, continues to invest heavily in the development of its electric vehicles. Thus, at the beginning of last year, representatives of the Japanese brand announced that they could stop producing and selling new cars with internal combustion engines, but not in all markets where they operate. Full “greening” threatens Europe, where the brand intends to sell only zero-emission cars from 2030. Now Nissan is developing a new family of electric vehicles and is presenting its harbinger – the Hyper Urban show car.
Nissan Hyper Urban Concept
The “live” premiere of the Nissan Hyper Urban concept will take place as part of the Japan Mobility Show, the exhibition will open its doors at the end of October this year. So far, the manufacturer has shared images of the exterior and interior of the futuristic crossover, as well as the first information about this exhibit.
The Nissan Hyper Urban is a show car designed to demonstrate the design direction and technological developments that will be applied to the brand's future all-electric models. The design style of the conceptual crossover is noticeably different from the current Ariya SUV with a streamlined body, the production version of which debuted in the summer of 2020.
The developers of the Hyper Urban show car provided it with sharp lines, which make up the design of the front and rear parts and decorate the sides. Triangles with sharp corners are noticeable even in the design of rims. The role of head optics is played by an LED strip running along the edge of the hood across the entire width of the front part, and above is the illuminated logo of the Japanese brand.
The rear lights are also made in the form of a single luminous plate running across the entire width of the stern, and visually this element merges with the sloping rear window. The design uses glossy black plastic; in particular, the linings on the wheel arches and the lower parts of both bumpers are made from it. The lime yellow body color can change shades depending on the lighting angle. The concept received a panoramic roof and doors with a “butterfly wings” design.
There are not many images of the interior yet. Judging by them, the Nissan Hyper Urban received a four-seater interior, while the seats can be transformed into a pair of “loungers” and a place to relax; The concept also likely involves the use of the most advanced autonomous control technologies. In the cabin you can see a steering wheel instead of the usual steering wheel, as well as a display integrated into the front panel displaying instrument indicators.
There is no information about the technology of the conceptual electric crossover yet. The company only said that Hyper Urban received V2H and V2G technologies, which allow energy to be directed to the power supply at home or to the network, which will help owners save. Note that Nissan is preparing to present several more concepts at the Japan Mobility Show; their manufacturer will announce them later.
