Nissan Hyper Force points to electric GT-R

1000kW all-electric concept designed to blend on-track performance with on-road comfort

26 Oct 2023

NISSAN revealed a fifth “hyper” concept at the Tokyo Motor Show this week, the Hyper Force an all-electric super car that perhaps points to the next generation GT-R.


Designed for racing enthusiasts and gamers who “crave the adrenalin rush of the racetrack but are also eco-conscious”, the Nissan Hyper Force concept is said to deliver the ultimate driving pleasure while also offering high performance and comfort in daily use.


Utilising a solid-state battery pack and high-output driveline, the model produces an astonishing 1000kW to offer what Nissan says is “precise and rapid acceleration”. The all-wheel drive model uses the brand’s e-Force system to distribute motive power to each of the four wheels and features a lightweight carbon-fibre body to provide “powerful downforce” and “exceptional handling”.


Wide, planted visuals and a blend of sleek curves and bold geometry are said to reflect the performance underneath, while suggesting the potential of the model as a GT-R replacement, the head- and tail-lights “pay homage to Nissan’s high-performance cars” of the past.


Developed in conjunction with the Nismo race team, the aerodynamics of the Hyper Force concept combine a two-tier structure beneath the front hood that melds downforce with high cooling performance. Similarly, a dual-level rear diffuser “optimally controls airflow”, and is further assisted by frontal canards, a fender flip, and other “active” aero components aimed at minimising inner wheel lift during cornering.


The concept’s driveline offers R (racing) and GT (grand touring) modes, each denoted by a graphical interface that changes colours inside the cab.


The former, denoted in red, aims to support driver concentration while simultaneously extending panels on the dashboard toward the seating space. Four satellite screens around the steering wheel display tyre grip and temperature, air pressure, brake rotor temperature, power distribution, and “other information invaluable for racing”.


In GT mode, the cabin illuminates blue and the dash panels retreat, combining together to provide “an immersive experience with a simpler infotainment interface”. The display now controls HVAC, audio, suspension and stabiliser settings, the latter a “world first that can be easily operated on the screen while driving”.


Driver and front passenger seats are constructed of carbon-fibre and fitted with four-point harnesses. Addition safety technologies include LIDAR-backed autonomous driving capabilities Nissan says are designed for use both on the road and on the circuit. The vehicle is also supplied with an augmented reality helmet that, when parked, provides a “gamified driving experience” in which the operator may compete against the clock or other online racers.


“All five concept cars showcased today are symbols of the future and embody our founding spirit of ‘daring to do what others don’t’,” said Nissan president and CEO, Makoto Uchida.


“We have advanced our EV innovations, moving beyond mobility to create a more sustainable world. The EVs symbolise 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.”
