NISSAN NV200 concept van – the extendable van

nissan nv2000 3

Nissan bring us the mobile office concept car – NV200 Concept from the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show. The NV200 concept features substantial and rugged-looking exterior with a traditional box-like storage space in the rear. The customizable cargo area houses a unique pod that can smartly accommodate a variety of business needs. The pod is divided into customizable trays and boxes for efficient storage of profession-specific equipment, materials, work gear and apparel. The displayed NV200 has been outfitted specifically for use by a professional ocean photographer. The work area is equipped with a remote control panel for a spider camera, as well as equipment for organizing and editing photographs and images while on assignment.

Nissan’s NV200 concept van was one of the undoubted stars of the Hanover Show – and designer Ryoichi Kuraoka found an unlikely inspiration for its innovative demountable pod system. “It’s based on Thunderbird 2, the one with the pod,” he said.
The inspiration isn’t recent either. Kuraoka has been with Nissan since 1981 – his CV includes the 1992 Micra hatchback – and he’s been a original fan of the British puppet sci-fi series since the 1960s, when he saw episodes on Japanese TV as a boy. “I had the Tracey Island model too,” he said.

Sadly, cost rules out putting into production the ‘pod’ body of the concept, which slides out on rails and is supported by fold-down legs. But the NV200 will become a production reality early next year, when it replaces the Renault Kangoo-based Kubistar compact van in the Nissan range. It’ll go on sale first in Japan next Spring, with European sales before the end of 2009.

It’ll be called NV200 too, as part of a new branding philosophy for the Nissan LCV range, which was quietly introduced with the NP300 pick-up (NP means Nissan Pick-up; NV Nissan Van, logically!)

NV200 has been designed to appeal to a wider global market. For example, the European-designed Kubistar was too large for Japanese market tax breaks, so the NV200 is slightly smaller, based on the Alliance B platform (Clio/Micra) rather than the C platform (Scenic/Kangoo). It meets Japanese size restrictions – 1.7m wide and 1.85m high – but it can still take two Europallets.

    nazmi,

    Ko memang xde keje lain ke nak kutuk proton n kereta lain je especialy malaysia made? x eloklah gitu. sume kereta ada kebaikan n keburukan. ko pakai chery eastar tu kalo ko rasa bagus, jgnlah memburukkan kereta lain. xpayahla rasa insecure n rendah diri sangat sebab chery eastar made in china n ramai orang x pecaya. kalo bagus kereta tu, xpayahla peduli apa tanggapan orang pon. janji sendiri puas hati cukup. ni aku tgk besepah2 ko dok kutuk kereta lain. tambah2 agi kereta malaysia. udah2 la tu.. kalo ko xnak kena ban ko baik cakap elok2 kat cni. orang pon x suke kalo ko cakap outspoken je. cakap kena pikir gak beb
