NISSAN has created an all-new NV300 Concept-van to highlight the versatility of Nissan commercial vehicles for bespoke conversions of all types.
Unveiled at the Brussels Motor Show in Belgium, the vehicle’s cargo area has been kitted out as a mobile workshop for a creative woodworking professional. It contains numerous practical and innovative features, and illustrates how Nissan’s extensive LCV range can be the perfect partner for professionals working in any sector or trade.
The van’s content has been developed and created in a collaboration between Nissan and Studio Hardie, a highly respected British design studio.
The NV300 Concept-van also comes equipped with an integrated portable battery solution called Nissan Energy ROAM – an all-in-one, weatherproof power pack that provides convenient, emission-free and silent power while on the go. With a storage capacity of 700Wh and maximum power output of 1kW, this portable battery solution is a state-of-the-art energy hub for mobile professionals.
For a woodworker moving regularly between jobs, it would allow them to power their professional life – from tools to tablets – in a highly efficient and eco-friendly way.
Comprising second-life batteries recovered from Nissan LEAF electric vehicles which have come to the end of their life, Nissan Energy ROAM is the latest example of Nissan’s leadership in sustainable energy technology. The power pack can even be recharged using a solar panel accessory – as mounted on the roof of the NV300 Concept-van – making it a truly ‘off-grid’ power solution.
Francesco Giacalone, LCV Planning and Marketing Director, Nissan Europe said: “With the NV300 Concept-van, Nissan is really thinking about the future of the commercial vehicle as an authentic partner for business customers. It’s practical and versatile as well as innovative and self-sufficient with the addition of Nissan Energy ROAM. We believe it has enormous potential in the LCV sector and is a key differentiator for Nissan commercial vehicles.”
The NV300 Concept-van is a great example of the new possibilities which Nissan might one day deliver to commercial customers. Its personalised load space includes innovations such as an integrated touch-screen computer, swivel seating on floor rails, space-saving bespoke storage and LED lighting in the ceiling.
Nissan Energy ROAM builds on prototype portable power technology seen on the Nissan Navara Dark Sky and Nissan Navara EnGuard concepts, unveiled at Hannover Motor Show 2018 and 2016 respectively. It is yet another practical example of Nissan Intelligent Mobility and how Nissan is seeking to apply its battery technology and EV expertise to entirely new business areas.
Designed for both professional and leisure use, Nissan Energy ROAM offers a clean, sustainable solution for customers needing electricity on the go. It will launch in European markets in spring 2019.
The Nissan NV300 is a spacious and incredibly practical light commercial vehicle and is available in various lengths and heights. Nissan is the only brand on the market to offer a five-year/100,000 mile warranty (60,000 miles on the e-NV200) across its entire LCV range, including the award-winning Navara pickup. The warranty can be transferred to the second and subsequent owners.
