Nissan has unveiled the Hyper Urban concept, a city-oriented electric vehicle designed to highlight the company’s future electric offerings. This concept is part of a series of “hyper” concepts Nissan plans to showcase, each featuring unique designs and technologies aimed at providing excitement to customers. The Hyper Urban, which is the first in this series, features distinctive elements designed to make a bold statement while blending in with its urban surroundings.
One of its standout features is a chromatic yellow paint that changes color depending on the angle of light. The Hyper Urban also incorporates scissor doors at both the front and rear, adding to its eye-catching appearance. Its sleek silhouette is optimized for aerodynamic efficiency, and wide tires contribute to a sporty aesthetic.
Inside, the interior design is inspired by kaleidoscopic triangles and includes a customizable instrument panel and infotainment display. The front seats can fold into the rear, creating a lounge-style sofa arrangement, allowing the vehicle to serve as an interior space for relaxation.
In terms of sustainability, the Hyper Urban offers regular hardware and software updates to stay current with the latest technology. It also features vehicle-to-grid charging capabilities, allowing owners to earn money by balancing power flow during peak periods and alleviating pressure on the electricity network.
While Nissan hasn’t specified which aspects of the Hyper Urban concept will make it into future production models, it is clear that this concept leans more towards the experimental and conceptual side. Nissan recently committed to launching electric vehicles exclusively in Europe from now on and plans to phase out combustion engine cars by 2030. The company intends to introduce 19 new electric vehicles in the coming seven years, including successors to models like the Micra and Leaf, as well as potential electric replacements for vehicles like the Juke, Qashqai, and X-Trail.
Nissan will unveil three more concepts leading up to the Tokyo Motor Show and is expected to showcase all four concepts together at the event, providing insights into what to expect from the company’s upcoming electric vehicle lineup.
