Nissan has unveiled the Hyper Force, an electric hypercar with an insane 1 MW of power output, but there’s no plan to bring it to production.
Leading up to the Japan Mobility Show this year, Nissan unveiled a series of electric vehicle concepts.
They were interesting, but it is hard to get too excited as they don’t seem to be anywhere near production intent.
At its press conference for the show’s opening media day, Nissan had one more EV concept: the Nissan Hyper Force.
Again, it’s not something we expect to see hit production anytime soon if ever. In fact, Nissan president and CEO Makoto Uchida said that the concepts displayed at the show today are nothing more than “symbols of the future”:
“All five concept cars showcased today 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.”
Like with most concepts, Nissan didn’t reveal many specs about the Hyper Force, but it did say that it uses “all-solid-state batteries” and has a powertrain capable of an output of “up to 1,000 kW” – powered by its e-4ORCE all-wheel drive technology.
That’s like a little power plant on four wheels.
Nissan says that the vehicle features “bold geometry”:
The exterior design, with its wide and planted proportions, is a blend of sleek curves merging seamlessly with bold geometry that reflects the performance underneath. Incorporated throughout the design are elements, such as on the front and rear lamps, that pay homage to Nissan’s high-performance cars.
Without confirming the details of the aerodynamic performance, Nissan says that its NISMO racing team helped develop the design to generate powerful downforce.
The Japanese automaker wrote about the vehicle’s aerodynamic performance:
The two-tiered aerodynamic structure under the front hood provides both strong downforce and high cooling performance. Meanwhile, the dual-level* rear diffuser optimally controls airflow. The front canards, front fender flip and both ends of the rear wing feature unique active aero functionality, while a newly developed plasma actuator suppresses air detachment to maximize grip and minimize inner-wheel lift during cornering. The lightweight forged carbon wheels aid aerodynamics and brake cooling.
The Hyper Force has apparently two modes, Racing and Grand Touring, and the vehicle’s user interface, and entire cabin really, changes depending on the mode:
Nissan also talks about the vehicle featuring autonomous driving with lidar and other sensors, but this is all very hypothetical considering the nature of the concept.
If you want to step further into the hypothetical, the Hyper Force is even equipped with AR and VR capabilities:
Elevating the Nissan Hyper Force’s appeal is an innovative augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) experience that enables driving in both the real and the virtual world seamlessly. When the vehicle is stopped, the driver can use a special helmet with blind visors for VR that enables entering a gamified driving experience, complete with modes that enable racing against the clock or online racers. By using skeleton visors for AR, the driver can complete against their own, friends’ or even professional drivers’ digital ghosts on a circuit, allowing users to safely push their driving skills on real-world tracks.
