Nissan unveils its vision of future mobility and hospitality at 2023 Japan Mobility Show.

Nissan has unveiled the Hyper Tourer Concept, which represents its vision of electric people-movers, at the 2023 Japan Mobility Show. The concept showcases Nissan’s commitment to blending Japanese hospitality (omotenashi) with advanced technologies, including autonomous driving. This unveiling follows the recent introductions of the Hyper Adventure off-roader and Hyper Urban city concepts, part of Nissan’s ambitious lineup of future mobility solutions.

Key Highlights:

Futuristic Design: The Hyper Tourer Concept boasts an otherworldly design, featuring large front and rear bumpers, a high MPV-style roofline, and a prominent spoiler. It embraces sharp, angular styling and introduces unique checkered kumiko-patterned aero wheels. The concept also replaces traditional wing mirrors with cameras.

Captivating Interior: Inside, the cabin design combines traditional elements like kumiko and koushi lighting patterns with a modern and complex aesthetic. The digital instrument cluster and infotainment display are seamlessly integrated into a panoramic display at the base of the windshield. A rectangular steering yoke extends from the lower dashboard, where driver controls are concentrated.

Innovative Autonomous Features: The Hyper Tourer features 360-degree swiveling front seats, enabling face-to-face interactions between front and rear-seat passengers. It also incorporates an AI system that monitors occupants’ biometric indicators such as brain waves, heart rate, and perspiration, autonomously adjusting music and lighting to match emotional states.

Compact Components and Solid-State Batteries: Nissan optimizes cabin space using compact high-energy density all-solid-state batteries. This technology lowers the vehicle’s center of gravity, enhancing ride quality and efficiency, especially when combined with Nissan’s e-4ORCE all-wheel control system. These batteries also support Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) functionality, capable of supplying electricity to various locations.

Future Mileage Potential: While the precise range of Nissan’s solid-state battery remains undisclosed, it is expected to outperform the 304-mile EPA-rated range of the lithium-ion-powered Nissan Ariya.

Nissan’s Hyper Tourer Concept embodies the brand’s commitment to innovative design, cutting-edge technology, and a future-focused approach to mobility. The company will reveal a fourth concept soon, promising yet another exciting addition to its forward-looking lineup.
