The e-NV200 looks like a serious offroader.
We love seeing high-horsepower builds and Nurburgring-crushing supercars as much as the next person, but a well-sorted camper can sometimes be just as cool, especially when it's in a compact body. Both Volkswagen and Kia have revealed tiny campers for some international markets, and now Nissan has revealed a new concept called the e-NV200 Winter Camper Concept. It's an electric version of the NV200 but is so much more than just a little van with some spotlights and chunky tires. Plus, the best part is that many of this concept's features are available for retrofitting to the regular van you can buy.
The camper features a 220V onboard power pack that can be recharged with roof-mounted solar panels and also boasts an integrated kitchen with a refrigerator, as well as folding beds and insulated glass for maximum comfort. To deal with the demands of treacherous terrain, the Winter Camper wears off-road tires and a mild lift kit. Twin spotlights rated at 5400-Lumens are fitted to a reinforced steel bar on the front of the Winter Camper too, making it quite capable for exploration. Other accessories that can be fitted to production versions of the van include front and rear mudguards, door-entry guards, side bars, and rubber mats.
Not only does this vehicle highlight some of the accessories available for the van, but it also allows Nissan to draw attention to its electric program that includes exciting vehicles like the brand's new Tesla Model Y rival, the Ariya. Dmitry Busurkin, Nissan Europe's Corporate Sales & LCV General Manager, says that for Nissan, "electric mobility is all about offering an exciting experience behind the wheel - while above all remaining conscious of our impact on the environment."
We like the idea of less conventional special projects like this gaining traction, but what about you? Would you buy this if it were available locally? We can't think of a reason why you shouldn't.
