Nissan GT-R Electric Hyper Force Concept

Nissan recently introduced a compelling lineup of concept vehicles at the Japan Mobility Show, collectively known as the ‘Hyper’ series. Among these, the Hyper Force concept electric sports car has generated significant interest. A cursory glance at the Hyper Force design hints at a possible evolution of the iconic Nissan GT-R electric series. The current Nissan GT-R (R35) has been a fixture since December 2007, and given Nissan’s ambitious plan to transition to an all-electric lineup by 2030, the Hyper Force concept raises expectations of being a glimpse into the future of the Nissan GT-R.

The design of the Nissan Hyper Force draws inspiration from the classic R35 GT-R and Skylines, reflecting the brand’s heritage. Developed with insights from the Nismo racing team, the Hyper Force exhibits a modern take on the R35’s side profile and incorporates twin round tail lights. Notable design features include active front winglets, a dual-level rear diffuser, and a “plasma actuator” designed to enhance aerodynamic grip. While some aspects of the design might seem reminiscent of video games, certain elements provide insight into Nissan’s electric vehicle (EV) ambitions.

In early 2023, there were reports suggesting that Nissan’s Yokohama Plant was gearing up for pilot production of solid-state batteries to power their upcoming range of EVs. Solid-state batteries are often hailed as the “holy grail” of EV battery technology, as they promise substantially higher energy density and improved safety. Despite several promises from automakers and tech companies about solid-state batteries in recent years, none have successfully brought them to market thus far. Nissan, however, aims to achieve mass production of solid-state batteries by 2028, with plans to introduce their first solid-state EV in the same year. This indicates the possibility of witnessing a brand-new, fully Nissan GT-R Electric, potentially borrowing design elements from the Hyper Force concept, before the year 2030.
