A smaller, more nimble offering for transporting refrigerated items in tight urban environments will go on show for Nissan at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show to.

A modified, all-electric Nissan e-NV200 Fridge Concept vehicle will line up with its Japan-only Paramedic Concept ambulance.

The Fridge Concept’s compact size will make it easier to park in urban environments, where large delivery trucks are often prevented from stopping, Nissan insists.

Equipped with an additional battery pack in the cargo space to power a refrigeration unit, the Nissan e-Fridge will be able to store chilled foods.

"Our fifth-generation ambulance will offer enhanced features that will make a real difference to people’s lives," Renault-Nissan LCV Business Unit senior vice president Ashwani Gupta says.

"The new Paramedic Concept contains vital life-saving equipment to respond to emergencies, often in remote areas.

"Meanwhile, the e-NV200 Fridge Concept will create huge value for commercial users – generating more business, as well as reducing the cost of ownership.

"With zero emissions, it’ll be perfect for busy urban environments where larger vehicles are often prohibited."

Other unique elements packed into the new ambulance include Nissan’s Intelligent Around View Monitor and technology to reduce the spread of germs.

The ambulance also carries a lithium-ion auxiliary battery that supports life-saving medical equipment when patients are in remote areas or in need of emergency assistance. It also contributes to CO2 reduction, as well as external and internal noise reduction.

Nissan plans to start sales of the ambulance in Japan in fiscal year 2018 and aims to double annual sales of the ambulance compared with the previous model.

Also featured will be the NV350 Caravan, which was launched in Japan in the summer. 

Intelligent emergency braking, vehicle dynamic control with traction control system functions and hill start assist, previously available only on some two-wheel-drive van grades, are now standard on all NV350 Caravan van models.

In addition, Intelligent Around View Monitor has been installed for the first time in vehicles of this class in Japan.
