NISSAN has created an all-new NV300 Concept-van to highlight the versatility of the brand’s bespoke conversions for commercial vehicles.
Unveiled at the Brussels Motor Show, 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, developed and created in a collaboration between Nissan and British design house Studio Hardie.
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 emission-free and silent power while on the go.
With a storage capacity of 700Wh and maximum power output of 1kW itprovides a 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 an efficient and eco-friendly way.
Comprising second-life batteries recovered from Nissan Leaf EVs which have come to the end of their life, 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.”
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.
