After unveiling the Hyper Urban last week, Nissan has today unveiled the Hyper Adventure, the second vehicle in its series of advanced EV concepts for the Japan Mobility Show.
The Japanese auto behemoth has been on a roll with interesting and enticing concepts lately, having previously released the urban mobility magnifique, the Concept 20-23 on a barge in the Paddington Canal to commemorate 20 years of its Nissan Design Europe (NDE) facility.
This time, ditching urban mobility for some off-roading as well as cruising around on paved roads with aplomb, Nissan said that its latest digital concept is a sports SUV designed for people passionate about outdoor adventures and an eco-friendly lifestyle, with the design aiming to support a wide range of outdoor adventures comfortably, safely and with a good supply of energy.
Another thing the company seems to have ditched this time are the scissor doors, present in both of its former two concept designs, and instead opting for more traditional, conventionally opening doors. Well, you’d find that those are maybe one of the only few things traditional and conventional about the Nissan Hyper Adventure though.
Hyper Adventure: All about the future of sporty SUVs
The concept and its V2X (vehicle-to-everything) technology are envisioned to sustain electricity needs anytime and anywhere while still being respectful of the environment.
Whether it’s a weekend jaunt to the local mountains or a months-long journey to a remote locale, the Nissan Hyper Adventure’s primary objective is to accommodate the diverse needs of those who love the outdoors. Its large-capacity battery doubles as an energy source, allowing users to power up their gadgets, light up campsites, or even recharge their electric jet skis. Its V2X capability can also provide power to homes (V2H) or a local community by contributing surplus power to the grid (V2G).
When traveling over a snowy mountain pass or the muddy trail of a lush rainforest, Nissan’s advanced e-4ORCE all-wheel-control system helps ensure that travellers reach their destinations smoothly, safely, and in style.
The cutting edge of eco-friendly innovation
The exterior features dynamic body panels that express activity, thanks to the distinctive diagonal line on the side of the vehicle that accentuates the spacious cabin within. The aerodynamics are further enhanced by glass that integrates the roof and side windows and the flush surface of the rear end.
The interior’s unique features and cabin space are designed to make driving in all situations easy and comfortable. The instrument panel connects to the bottom of the windshield, serving as a screen with a wide field of view – as if the body of the vehicle is transparent – and seamlessly connects the space inside and outside the car. The interior also boasts cargo space for outdoor equipment such as tents, skis, or even a kayak.
The rear bench seat is distinctive, as it can rotate 180 degrees on an axle and create a comfortable sitting area that faces out of the vehicle’s rear. This feature, that includes automatic extendable and retractable steps, comes in handy when camping, getting ready for a day of skiing, or taking in a scenic view.
The Nissan Hyper Adventure concept will be displayed digitally at the Japan Mobility Show due to be held on October 25. With two concepts already under its belt for the show, we are being told that we can expect one final concept from the Japanese company next week.
