Nissan Hyper Tourer concept is a people-mover that reads your mind

Ahead of its debut at the Japan Mobility Show on October 25, Nissan has previewed an electric people-mover that can read the brain waves of its passengers and play music and set interior lighting to reflect their mood.

The Hyper Tourer is the third of four concepts Nissan is unveiling leading into the show and the first it has confirmed will be physically on its Tokyo stand.

The Hyper Adventure previewed last week will be digital only while the form in which the Hyper Urban is shown is yet to be clarified.

While its blocky exterior and defined creases give it a powerful and familiar look, evocative of modern people-movers, the Hyper Tourer is more innovative inside.

“Fully autonomous driving enables those in the driver’s seat to focus on interacting with their travel companions,” a Nissan statement explains.

“The front seats can swivel 360-degrees, allowing front- and rear-seat passengers to have face-to-face discussions.

“Rear-seat passengers can use a wearable display to view and operate the navigation and audio on the front-seat centre display, creating a sense of unity among all occupants.

“Also, an innovative AI system can monitor your biometric signs—including brain waves, heart rate, breathing and perspiration—and automatically select complementary music and adjust the lighting to fit your mood.”

There’s even a flat LED panel in the floor that displays imagery of a riverbed and the sky, “helping create a relaxing space where digital and nature are fused”.

Key Hyper Tourer technology includes compact solid state batteries and e-4ORCE all-wheel control, Nissan says this delivers “smooth and flat” acceleration and deceleration.

V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) functionality allows electricity to be supplied to homes, stores, and offices, while traveling and on various business situations, Nissan says.
