Navara concept shoots for the stars news

Nissan’s The Dark Sky concept offers stargazers the ultimate dual cab

NISSAN fronted up at the IAA Commercial Vehicles Show in Hanover, Germany with another concept based on its Navara dual cab. The Dark Sky concept was designed to be able to tow its high-powered telescope-equipped trailer to wherever the best sky is for stargazing, no matter the terrain.

The vehicle features a bespoke body kit, recovery winch, LED lighting and a custom interior. The LED lighting continues in the cargo bay where there are load rollers to make getting gear in and out easier. Oversize Cooper all-terrain tyres add the Navara’s off-road ability.

The dual-axle off-road trailer carries an ultra-high performance PlaneWave telescope. 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.
