Nissan Navara Dark Sky Concept

We’re at the dawn of a new space age now that SpaceX has announced the first private individual who will be going on a trip to the moon so it’s time to look at the night sky with renewed curiosity.┬áDeveloped in collaboration with the European Space Agency and unveiled at the 2018 Hannover Motor Show, the Nissan Navara Dark Sky Concept fits with the theme of this new era. The showcase vehicle functions as a mobile astronomy lab and on the trailer behind it is an observatory-class telescope that the pickup carries to remote locations away from light pollution that obscures the view of the cosmos. The concept vehicle also features other tech from Nissan including their Intelligent Mobility systems for safe maneuverability and their portable battery packs that use electric vehicle tech from the Nissan LEAF.
