NISSAN has unveiled the fourth of its series of concept vehicles, the Nissan Hyper Punk, set to be physically displayed at the Japan Mobility Show on October 25.
The Nissan Hyper Punk is an all-electric compact crossover is aimed at those who embrace style and innovation, influencers, artists and content creators.
The concept's vehicle-to-everything (V2X) system ensures that users can charge their devices anytime and anywhere, while also sharing the vehicle's energy with other devices.
Inside, origami-styled elements mirror Japanese design and create an interior space where digital and art are fused together.
For example, the onboard cameras can capture the scenery around the car and use AI to convert tomanga-style scenery or graphic patterns according to the owner's preferences. The imagery can then be projected on a three-screen display arranged around the driver in the cockpit, creating a space where reality and the world of the metaverse merges.
Designed as a mobile creative studio, the cabin provides Internet connectivity and can link to occupants' devices and creative equipment, enabling users to access information or create on the go.
The Nissan Hyper Punk concept is fitted with AI and headrest biosensors which can detect the driver's mood and automatically select the right music and lighting to boost the driver's energy and creativity.
With an exterior aesthetic defined by multifaceted and polygonal surfaces, the Nissan Hyper Punk stands out with tones in the silver paint that shift depending on viewing angle and light source.
Nissan says the highly stable design with compact overhangs and large 23-inch wheels expresses this versatile concept ideal for both city and off-road driving. The headlights, tail lamps, and rear signature emphasise the polygonal shapes and are integrated into the body surface.
All four of the EV concept cars, the Nissan Hyper Urban, Nissan Hyper Adventure, Nissan Hyper Tourer and Nissan Hyper Punk, will be seen at the show which opens on October 25.
In addition, from October 25, the concept vehicles will become available on the online game Fortnite under the name "Electrify the World" for further exploration of these special vehicles.
