Nissan has announced the launch of its latest concept car, the Nissan Navara Dark Sky Concept. The vehicle has be designed to be used by astronomers and it is based on the company’s Navara pick up.
The new Nissan Navara Dark Sky Concept is basically a mobile observatory, it has been developed in partnership with the European Space Agency.
ESA is mapping the stars with unprecedented precision using the Gaia satellite, which has already observed more than a billion stars. The Nissan Navara Dark Sky Concept supports this project by helping astronomers conduct follow-up observations of the universe from hard-to-reach, so-called “dark sky” locations – away from the nighttime glow of urban areas, which decreases visibility.
“The Nissan Navara Dark Sky Concept is a brilliant example of Nissan serving as an authentic partner, empowering our customers to go anywhere,” said Ashwani Gupta, senior vice president of Nissan’s light commercial vehicle business. “Through Nissan Intelligent Mobility and ProPILOT, we are creating the best solutions for the next frontiers of business, no matter how complex the commercial need.”
