The Nissan NV2500 Concept presents a preview of Nissan North America, Inc.’s upcoming entry into the growing Commercial Vehicle (CV) market, which launches in 2010 with a lineup that includes vehicles developed specifically for North America.
The NV2500 Concept is designed as a highly capable work vehicle that offers low-impact solutions to high utility needs. It is configured as a “mobile, on-site construction office,” equipped with a computer work station, wireless laser blueprint printer, fold-down conference table, storage compartments, cargo/tool tie-down racks, a near-six foot walk-through interior height and an awning-style side panel that opens to create a standing outside work table.
Other features include a front passenger seat swing arm bracket that allows the seat to be used for both the computer station and the workbench. Along with task-focused lighting throughout the interior, an oversize fixed glass panel roof with integrated solar panels provides light and power for auxiliary tools and accessories.
The NV2500 was developed by Nissan Design America, Inc. (NDA) and is built on a modified Nissan Titan full-size pickup all-steel, fully boxed ladder frame.
