Nissan Navara Dark Sky concept revealed


Nissan has revealed the Navara Dark Sky concept at the 2018 Hannover motor show, developed in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA).

The space-themed show car is basically a “mobile astronomy lab”, featuring an observatory-class telescope mounted to a bespoke off-road trailer.

In addition to the special trailer with stargazing equipment, the Navara itself has been given a makeover, which also potentially previews an forthcoming update for the popular ute.

‘Parametric’ patterning adorns the exterior and interior, which is said to echo “nebula motifs”. There’s plenty of red lighting as well, since red light affects human night vision the least.

The full-LED headlights have a new daytime-running light strip compared to the dotted layout of the current car, and the headlight internals themselves appear to have quad-LED lenses.

Other changes include has raised the ground clearance – though doesn’t explicitly say by how much – larger wheels shod in off-road tyres, larger brakes with drilled disc rotors, along with navy interior upholstery accented by orange patterning and seat  piping. Nissan’s new steering wheel design – already featured in models like the Qashqai and X-Trail – makes an appearance as well.
