Nissan Navara Dark Sky Concept Is out of This World
In the United States, we all know that Nissan is making a big push for its trucks. The brand keeps rolling out awesome concept vehicles that show what the vehicle is capable of with some cool accessories or modifications. While the Nissan TITAN lineup seems to be getting the most attention, Nissan showed Europe some love and rolled out the Nissan Navara Dark Sky Concept for the 2018 Hannover Motor Show.

Unlike some of the other concept cars, it might be difficult to know what the Nissan Navara Dark Sky Concept is all about by just looking at it. It’s clearly a cool truck from Nissan’s commercial vehicle line, but it’s pulling a non-descript looking trailer. That custom off-road trailer is actually holding an observatory-class telescope, which means that the whole setup is perfect for getting off the beaten path (and away from light pollution) to get the best look at the stars.
Nissan knows its way around cars, but when it comes to the stars it needed a bit of help. The telescope and its trailer were developed in a partnership with the European Space Agency. While the Nissan Navara Dark Sky is only a concept vehicle, this attention to detail means that it’s ready for a real trip to see the stars instead of just looking the part.
“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.”

Hopefully, this custom concept truck will take a road trip and let others experience the stars, much like how the Nissan Smokin’ TITAN toured the cities most famous for barbeque in the U.S.
