Get ready for an influx of all-electric EV concepts in the coming days, folks. The Japan Mobility Show – formerly the Tokyo Motor Show – opens to the public on October 28, and the Japanese carmakers are going to make their presence known. We’ve already seen some of what Honda is bringing, and now Nissan has revealed the first of what it calls a series of concepts headed to the show.
The Nissan Hyper Urban is, well, aimed at “urban- and suburban-based professionals who prioritize environmental sustainability.” Of course, we know nothing of the power, range or battery size, but the selling feature here is its V2H (vehicle to home) and V2G (vehicle to grid) interface capabilities. Nissan says the Hyper Urban can not only help power your home, but also add excess power back to the grid, making it “fully interwoven into the EV ecosystem.”
Another key feature is that it can be updated – and not just with OTA software updates, either, but also with hardware upgrades. The instrument panel, for example, can be swapped out for a new one with more modern technologies as they develop.
And with front seats that fold into the rear for a sofa-like atmosphere, Nissan says it can be parked “inside a loft apartment or bungalow so that it becomes an interior space to unwind.” And seeing as it’s electric, why not? You’d need a bigger front door, though.
The Hyper Urban is just a concept, and there are no plans for production as of yet. But stay tuned here for more sneak peeks as we get closer to the Japan Mobility Show.
