Nissan Navara EnGuard Emergency Rescue Concept

Nissan has unveiled an all-new vehicle at the 2016 Hannover Motor Show. The Nissan Navara EnGuard Concept is a durable and tough all-terrain pick-up, designed to operate as a life-saving rescue platform in some of the world’s most harsh and extreme environments.

When docked in place the battery packs are constantly in ‘charge’ mode, using power generated by the vehicle’s 2.3-liter 190PS twin-turbo diesel engine to ensure they’re ready for emergency use when required. Each is a 2kW unit and utilizes seven Nissan EV battery modules inside a weather-proof housing.

“Viene il giorno che ti guardi allo specchio e sei diverso da come ti aspettavi. Sì, perchè lo specchio è la forma più crudele di verità. Non appari come sei veramente.”
