Nissan Hyper Punk: The Japanese manufacturer’s fourth ‘Hyper’ EV concept

Nissan has previewed the fourth electric vehicle concept from its ‘Hyper’ series, the Hyper Punk, which will be displayed at the Japan Mobility Show next week.

The Nissan Hyper Punk, wrapped in a functional and stylish body style, is an all-electric compact crossover tailored for content creators, influencers, artists, and those who embrace style and innovation.

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 collaborators and at local community events.

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 to manga-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 seamless internet connectivity and can link to occupants’ devices and creative equipment, enabling users to access information or create on the go. With AI and headrest biosensors, the Nissan Hyper Punk concept can detect the driver’s mood and automatically select the right music and lighting, boosting the driver’s energy and creativity.

With an exterior aesthetic defined by multifaceted and polygonal surfaces, the Nissan Hyper Punk features tones in the silver paint that shift depending on viewing angle and light source.

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, further accentuating this unique vehicle.

Starting today, the digital-3D billboard Cross Shinjuku Vision in the Shinjuku district of Tokyo will show off the four EV concept cars, Nissan Hyper Urban, Nissan Hyper Adventure, Nissan Hyper Tourer and Nissan Hyper Punk, until October 25, the opening day of the show.

In addition, from October 25, the concept vehicles will become available on the online game Fortnite* under the name “Electrify the World.”
