NAVARA SHOOTS FOR THE STARS

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 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 to the Navara’ off-road ability.

The dual-axle off-road trailer carries an ultra-high performance PlaneWave telescope. Thanks to the Navara’ 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.
