The show's spotlight is on the Nissan Hyper Force, marking the spectacular conclusion to Nissan's visionary series of five "hyper" concept vehicles. Over the past weeks, Nissan has unveiled an array of Electric Vehicle (EV) concepts, demonstrating its remarkable ability to anticipate and fulfill diverse future customer needs and lifestyles.
A Concept Series Unveiled
Since October 3, Nissan has captivated audiences by revealing one electrifying concept after another. These concepts go beyond the ordinary and emphasize Nissan's commitment to enriching lives with innovation and excitement.
Makoto Uchida's Vision
Nissan's President and CEO, Makoto Uchida, expressed the significance of this moment, stating, "All five concept cars showcased yesterday are symbols of the future and embody our founding spirit of 'daring to do what others don't'. We have advanced our EV innovations, moving beyond mobility to create a more sustainable world. The EVs symbolize our future of creating a cleaner, safer, and more inclusive world for everybody without compromising on passions and dreams. Through the power of innovation, Nissan is creating a future where everyone can enjoy the excitement of mobility."
Envisioning a Sustainable Future
The concept vehicles on display at the Japan Mobility Show are not just cars; they represent Nissan's forward-thinking approach to a cleaner and more sustainable world. While addressing the evolving needs of individuals, Nissan remains unwavering in its commitment to preserving the excitement and dreams of its customers.
Nissan has just pulled the wraps off its latest creation, the Hyper Force, an all-electric sports car boasting a jaw-dropping 1,341 horsepower (1,000 kW). While Nissan doesn't explicitly call it a GT-R, the family resemblance is undeniable, especially in the pixelated illuminated badge.
This concept showcases Nissan's cutting-edge e-4ORCE all-wheel control tech, lightweight construction, and a solid-state battery. Among Nissan's recent concept reveals, the Hyper Force stands out as the star attraction.
Nissan intends for the Hyper Force to captivate both racing enthusiasts and gamers. Although specific technical details are scant, Nissan highlights key features like an "optimal weight balance" and lightweight carbon construction, including carbon fiber wheels. It also offers two distinct driving modes: GT for Grand Touring and R for racing.
Makoto Uchida, Nissan's president and CEO, envisions these concept cars as symbols of a future where innovation leads to a cleaner, safer, and more inclusive world, without sacrificing the excitement of mobility.
The Hyper Force boasts super-futuristic elements, including active aero components like canards, a front lip, a rear spoiler, and fender vents. Nissan even introduces a "newly developed plasma actuator" to enhance cornering stability.
The cabin is equally impressive, with an adaptive infotainment display developed in collaboration with Gran Turismo developer Polyphony Digital. In racing mode (R), the cabin comes alive with red ambient lighting and extended dash panels providing essential racing data. In Grand Touring mode (GT), the cabin adopts a more relaxed ambiance, with blue lighting and simplified displays for climate controls, audio, suspension, and stabilizer settings.
Nissan takes gaming to the next level by allowing drivers to compete in virtual races using a special helmet, genuine steering wheel, and pedals. Augmented reality is also employed to project digital ghosts on circuits for drivers to challenge or beat on the track.
While Nissan doesn't confirm that the Hyper Force represents the future design language of the next-gen GT-R, there are strong hints that it could significantly influence the next super sports car. The familiar tail lights, iconic pixelated badge, and the design's homage to Nissan's high-performance legacy all fuel speculation that the next GT-R may roar to life with over 1,000 horsepower.
