The Nissan Hyper Tourer EV concept has been unveiled ahead of its appearance at the Japan Mobility Show later this month. The autonomous minivan is the third EV concept from the auto maker to feature at the show, which opens on October 25, 2023.
Designed with a focus on revolutionizing all-electric minivans, its V2X (vehicle-to-everything) functionality means the vehicle can be charged in most scenarios.
The interior of the Hyper Tourer contains compactly arranged components and high-energy density all-solid-state batteries, resulting in an ultra-low center of gravity. This, in conjunction with the advanced e-4ORCE all-wheel control system, produces “smooth and flat” acceleration and deceleration, the company says.
Traditional Japanese kumiko and koushi patterns decorate the overhead console and lighting, creating an atmosphere of luxury. An LED panel integrated into the floor showcases imagery of a riverbed and the open sky.
The autonomous vehicle features seats that are able to swivel 360°, facilitating face-to-face interactions between front and rear-seat passengers. Rear-seat occupants can access and control navigation and audio through a wearable display, fostering a sense of togetherness among passengers.
Its AI system monitors occupants’ biometric data, including brain waves, heart rate, breathing and perspiration, and is able to adapt music and lighting to suit their mood and preferences.
