Expect your jaw to drop upon first glance of the Nissan Hyper Force EV
Screaming GT-R vibes, the Nissan Hyper Force EV concept has been revealed at the 2023 Tokyo Auto Show. Nissan surely surprised all the attendees with the unveiling, as the 1,300 horsepower superbeast took design cues from the current R35 as well as the Tesla Cybertruck. Yes, if the Cybertruck and the R35 had a baby, this would be it.
The Nissan Hyper Force EV concept is muscular, donning a bare-metal finish and sharp edges as if the R35 wore an aggressive bodykit. The front end of the car also features an illuminated badge, resembling what might be the GT-R emblem.
Nissan claims that the NISMO racing squad provided feedback on the design. Downforce and cooling airflow management are provided by the stepped front end and the comb-like rear diffuser. Active aero is provided by the large wing, and improved cornering grip is achieved by fine-tuning the airflow surrounding the forged carbon wheels via a plasma actuator that regulates airflow using an electrode.
With a solid-state battery producing 1,341 horsepower, the Hyper Force will be propelled by an enhanced e-4ORCE all-wheel drive system from Nissan. Although no other specifications or performance numbers have been revealed, everything that has been stated is a good sign of what’s to come.
The cockpit is composed of additional forged carbon behind its vertically opening doors. It has floating, relaxed racing seats with four-point belts. The slim steering wheel and surrounding screens of the concept are a replica of the squared-off exterior borders.
In R mode, the screens move in the direction of the driver, showing temperature and tire pressure information about the systems. The interface in GT mode is more infotainment and cabin comfort oriented, and the interior lighting changes to blue instead of red. Another outstanding feature is that the Hyper Force can also be utilized as a virtual reality gaming room when it’s not in operation.
Fingers crossed that the Nissan Hyper Force EV goes into production ASAP. This might currently be the most anticipated car in all of Japan.
