Nissan introduces Navara Dark Sky concept

Nissan has unveiled a new concept vehicle at the Hannover Motor Show, called the Navara Dark Sky Concept.

Developed in the UK, in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA), and equipped with a more advanced version of Nissan’s ProPILOT driver assistance technology, it highlights how the robust capability of the Navara pickup can power and tow a mobile astronomy laboratory.

The concept includes an ultra-high performance PlaneWave telescope within a bespoke trailer module. Thanks to the Navara’s intelligent towing capabilities, the telescope module can be towed easily to remote off-road “dark sky” locations, where the best atmospheric conditions for stargazing are found.
