Nissan is running a series of digital reveals of its concept BEVs ahead of the Japan Mobility Show later this month.

The first reveal is of its Nissan Hyper Urban which was shown at the automaker’s design presentation hall within the Nissan Technical Center in Atsugi, Kanagawa. This concept is aimed at both urban- and suburban-based professionals who prioritize environmental sustainability.

It boasts impressive vehicle-to-home (V2H) capability providing power to the home, resulting in energy cost savings and reducing strain on the power grid. Thanks to its V2G capability, owners can also 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.

Potential of both hardware and software updates claim to 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 represents possible future design and technological capabilities of Nissan’s electric offerings. The exterior’s lime yellow body changes chromatic expressions depending on the angle that light hits it, effectively drawing attention while also blending into the surroundings. The front and rear scissor doors provide a sense of openness and character, while the sporty silhouette offers improved aerodynamics for increased efficiency. Wide tires complete the sporty look, evoking rugged dynamics with urban aesthetics. The interior includes front seats that can collapse and fold into the back seats, creating a sofa-like, private relaxing space.
