Nissan Hyper Force Concept

In 2023, when Nissan is celebrating its 90th anniversary, the Nissan Hyper Force will be on show with a plethora of other cutting-edge and notable Nissan automobiles at the Japan Mobility Show.

Nissan is showcasing an electric future that can accommodate a broader range of users with different demands, as well as the intelligence and connectivity of cars that can make life simpler, more socially connected, and more interesting. Nissan is also demonstrating its all-encompassing strategy for building an ecosystem around EVs that can contribute to the creation of a more sustainable society.

The Hyper Force, an all-electric sports vehicle with 1,341 horsepower (1,000 kW) and a ton of GT-R DNA, was just unveiled by Nissan. While the firm humorously avoids naming it outright, it is evident everywhere, including in the pixelated illuminated insignia.

The concept has a solid-state battery, lightweight design, and Nissan's e-4ORCE all-wheel control system. It's the culmination of Nissan's many weeks-long series of concept unveilings, and it's unquestionably the best one.

Nissan claims that both racing lovers and gamers would find this concept appealing. Although Nissan doesn't offer many specifics or technical facts regarding the Hyper Force, it was evident about a few important aspects. "Optimal weight balance" and lightweight carbon construction, including carbon fiber wheels, are its advantages. It has two modes as well: GT (for grand touring) and R (for racing).

"All five concept cars showcased today are symbols of the future and embody our founding spirit of 'daring to do what others don't,'" says Makoto Uchida, president and CEO of Nissan. Our advancements in EV technology have beyond mere transportation to usher in a more sustainable global community. The EVs stand for our goal of preserving individual interests and aspirations while building a more inclusive, safer, and cleaner world for all. Nissan is building a future where everyone can experience the thrill of mobility by utilizing innovation.

To further differentiate itself from the rest of the render-only idea crowd, the Hyper Force also receives a few super-futuristic characteristics. This consists of fender vents, a front lip, a rear spoiler, and canards for active aerodynamics. Nissan also claims to have a "newly developed plasma actuator" that reduces inner-wheel lift while cornering by suppressing air detachment.

The cabin remains just as wild. It seems sense that an adaptable infotainment display would have an appearance similar to that of a video game. It was created in collaboration with Polyphony Digital, the creator of Gran Turismo. In R mode, the dash's panels stretch toward the driver to display crucial racing data, and the Hyper Force lights the interior with red ambient light.

When in GT mode, the cabin becomes blue, a far more basic set of displays takes over and many of those panels disappear into the background. The driver retains complete control over the radio, suspension, stabilizer, and temperature controls.

A revolutionary augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) experience that makes driving in both the real and virtual worlds seamless adds to the allure of the Nissan Hyper Force. The driver may access a gamified driving experience when the car is stopped by using a customized helmet with virtual reality blind visors. This helmet has settings that allow the driver to race against the clock or other drivers online. Users may safely test their driving prowess on actual tracks by competing against their own, their friends', or even professional drivers' digital ghosts on a circuit by employing skeleton visors for AR.

The Nissan Hyper Force, which responds to the constantly changing tastes of customers who care about the environment, represents a paradigm leap in the performance vehicle segment. 

Nissan isn't denying that this will be the next generation GT-R's design language, but it's also not denying it either. Indeed, there are some indications that it may have an impact on the next ultra-sports vehicle.

First of all, those tail lights are unmistakably the "Godzilla" trademark that has been there for many generations. Second, there is something familiar about the pixelated emblem on the front. In the end, the business did concede that the style is a "tribute to Nissan's high-performance cars." If that means that the next GT-R will launch with more than 1,000 horsepower, we say go ahead.
