Nissan has revealed its second concept for the Tokyo motor show, and as you’d expect it’s another electric SUV. Get that surprise out the way, however, and the Nissan Hyper Adventure is a striking concept, designed to cope with the great outdoors. Here’s everything you need to know.

What’s it about? 

Nissan says the Hyper Adventure is for ‘people passionate about outdoor adventures and and eco-friendly lifestyle.’ To that end, the Hyper Adventure is both designed to take on the outdoors, but also features technology designed to support an adventure in the elements. 

Doors open of Hyper Adventure concept

Key to the Hyper Adventure is V2X (vehicle to everything technology) which allow the car to act as an energy source or energy store when out in the wilderness. Within the umbrella of V2X, V2H (Vehicle to Home) tech would allow the SUV to power a camp or home. In the same way, the Nissan’s V2G (Vehicle to Grid) technology, means it could help support the grid of a local community. Simply put, the Hyper Adventure can transform itself to a moving battery when needed. 

What else? 

Of course, Hyper Adventure also needs to get around in demanding conditions, so it features Nissan’s electric e-4ORCE all-wheel-drive powertrain. The bodywork benefits from high ground clearance, and Nissan says the car can also achieve ‘high aerodynamic performance,’ which is quite optimistic for the low-speed off-roading this car would be doing. 

What about the interior? 

The Nissan offers space for a range of outdoor equipment such as tents or kayaks and there’s also a rear bench seat for extra space. The Hyper Adventure also gets retractable steps to help passengers get in and out when stopped on difficult terrain. But the most interest bit? The Hyper Adventure’s instrument panel connects to the bottom of the windscreen, making it easier to look at the road and visually bringing the outdoors in.
