Nissan has unveiled its second digital concept car in its series of “advanced EV concepts” that’s set to be shown off at the Japan Mobility Show (formerly Tokyo motor show), which starts on October 25.
The Nissan Hyper Adventure concept is a so-called “sports SUV” that’s designed for “people passionate about outdoor adventures and an eco-friendly lifestyle”.
Nissan hasn’t detailed to much about the Hyper Adventure concept’s all-electric powertrain apart from confirming it has the company’s e-4ORCE all-wheel drive system.
It also has a “large-capacity battery” with vehicle-to-everything (V2X) capability which can provide power to homes with vehicle-to-home (V2H) technology, as well as contribute surplus power to the electricity grid with vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology.
In terms of exterior design, the Nissan Hyper Adventure concept looks nothing like any existing production model. There are, however, certain elements that are reminiscent of the all-electric Ariya crossover.
At the front there’s an emphasis on aerodynamics with an air intake at the bottom of the front bumper that then directs air over the car out a large cutout between the bonnet and windscreen.
Around the side the Hyper Adventure concept has a silhouette that’s similar to the Ariya.
There are a set of large wheels with a turbine-like design which are wrapped in tyres that have snow spikes.
The front doors on the Hyper Adventure concept open outwards like in a regular car, however the rear doors open upwards like gullwing doors or the Tesla Model X‘s rear Falcon doors.
At the rear there’s a split tailgate. The bottom section of this tailgate has automatic extendable and retractable steps.
Inside the Nissan Hyper Adventure concept has a instrument panel that spans the entire dashboard, as well as a full-width head-up display. There’s also a steering yoke.
The interior is claimed to have enough cargo space for equipment such as tents, skis, or a kayak.
The rear bench seat is able to rotate 180 degrees which can be used to create a seating area that faces out the vehicle’s rear.
At this stage it’s not clear whether the Hyper Adventure concept previews an all-new model, a replacement for an existing model, or an electric sibling to an existing combustion vehicle.
