In the lead up to the Japan Mobility Show in Tokyo later this month, Nissan has taken the cover off the first of a series of all-electric concept vehicles – the Nissan Hyper Urban.

The series, to be revealed one by one in digital form leading up to the show’s press day on October 25, features the word ‘hyper’ to express the heightened excitement they aim to bring, states the carmaker. According to Nissan, “Each concept is represented by a symbolic character and has custom-tailored features that add value to unique lifestyles and diverse aspirations. The concepts help customers make a positive impact on the planet without compromising on style or fun.”

The Nissan Hyper Urban has been styled to address “the sophisticated tastes of its target users, such as urban- and suburban-based professionals who prioritise environmental sustainability.” The Nissan Hyper Urban would also be fully interwoven into the EV ecosystem, with its V2H function providing power to the home, resulting in significant energy cost savings and reducing strain on the power grid. Thanks to its V2G capability, owners can even contribute surplus power to the grid to support their local community and earn money in the process. The Intelligent Charging Management System features AI that can autonomously charge vehicles and power buildings, providing efficient management of power.

The concept also applies sustainability to vehicle lifespan, making it ideal for people conscious of the long-term value of everything they own. Hardware updates and regular software updates provide a fresh ownership experience over many years. For example, the interior can be refreshed with a new instrument panel that reflects the latest technologies and trends in graphic user interfaces.

The car, which sports front and rear scissor doors, represents future design and technological capabilities of Nissan’s EVs. The exterior lime yellow body changes chromatic expressions depending on the angle that light hits it, effectively drawing attention while also blending into the surrounds. The sporty silhouette produces aerodynamic excellence for increased efficiency and wide tyres complete the sporty look, evoking rugged dynamics with urban aesthetics.

The interior is designed to blend in with urban living spaces. Inspired by kaleidoscopic triangles, the instrument panel and display can be customised according to the owner’s mood. In addition, the front seats can collapse and fold into the back seats, creating a sofa-like, private relaxing space.
