Nissan Debuts Hyper Tourer EV Concept: A Potential Lexus LM Rival?
October 17, 2023
Nissan has unveiled the Nissan Hyper Tourer, an electric vehicle (EV) concept, which will be on display at the Japan Mobility Show starting October 25.
The Hyper Tourer is an all-electric minivan. It incorporates V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) functionality, enabling its high-capacity battery to provide electricity to external sources like homes and businesses. Additionally, the vehicle integrates autonomous driving features.
Externally, the vehicle has a design featuring smooth body panels and character lines. It includes a white waistline that functions as a headlight and signature lamp. The wheels are decorated with a kumiko pattern.
Inside the Hyper Tourer, space optimization has been achieved using the Nissan EV Technology Vision. This system consolidates compact components and a high-energy all-solid-state battery, leading to a lower center of gravity.
The vehicle also employs the e-4ORCE all-wheel control system. The interior design includes overhead console lighting with kumiko and koushi patterns, and a floor LED panel that displays imagery.
The vehicle's autonomous functions allow the front seats to swivel 360-degrees, facilitating interactions among passengers. A built-in AI system can monitor various biometric signs of occupants to adjust in-car systems such as lighting and music.
Lexus Australia has announced the arrival of the Lexus LM, a luxury minivan, in 2024. Given the unveiling of the Hyper Tourer, there is speculation that Nissan might be developing a competitor for the Lexus LM for the Australian market.
