Nissan Hyper Urban All-Electric Concept Coming To Tokyo Mobility Show Next Month
The Nissan Hyper Urban Concept gets digitally revealed ahead of its physical show debut.
Next month, automotive journalists the world over will converge in Tokyo for the Japan Mobility Show – an evolved version of the Tokyo Motor Show, which has been on hold since 2019. At that event, Nissan is planning to show the Hyper Urban Concept, a sophisticated all-electric vehicle that will preview the company’s upcoming production models. This model is now being shown over the internet in digital form and we should see some of the others being teased in this way over the coming weeks leading up to the actual show as well.
The Hyper Urban concept was premiered digital at the company’s new Digital Presentation Hall at the Nissan Technical Center in Atsugi, Kanagawa.
What is the Nissan Hyper Urban All About?
Electric vehicles are a dime a dozen at this point, so what exactly does the Hyper Urban Concept bring to the table? Well, let’s start with the target audience. Nissan planned this around urban and suburban based professionals who prioritize environmental sustainability. They wanted to create an EV that put sleek and modern aesthetics first to reflect the discerning tastes of their customers.
On the technology side, this EV will be fully interwoven into the ecosystem with Vehicle-to-Home (V2H) charging, Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) capability, and an AI-powered Intelligent Charging Management System to help manage all of this and determine the best time to charge and discharge the battery to and from the grid.
Finally, the hardware and software is designed to be updated over many years. Yes, even the digital screens in the car can be upgraded as there are better ones available in the market. This makes the Hyper Urban concept a much more sustainable electric vehicle.
The hero colour chosen for the Nissan Hyper Urban is a lime yellow paint that changes its chromatic expression depending on the angle the light hits it at. There are front and rear scissor doors that create a sense of openness while the sporty silhouette is super aerodynamic and efficient with a touch of ruggedness.
Inside, the digital panels can be customised according to the owner’s mood. Plus there’s a lot of flexibility, including the ability to collapse and fold the front seats into the back seats for a sofa-like relaxing area. This is to create a stationary ‘third space’ to work and relax in while the car charges.
