Nissan Announces Nissan NV2500 Concept for Detroit show
November 12, 2008
Nissan has dropped one blurry image and some cryptic details about a new vehicle it will display at the 2009 Detroit auto show called the Nissan NV2500 Concept.
The Japanese automaker is calling the NV2500 one of the largest concepts it has ever created, and Nissan says it serves as a preview for its entry into the commercial vehicle market in the U.S. It's not a stretch then to guess that the NV2500 is probably larger than its full-size Armada ute, but could be a modified version of that vehicle not unlike what GM did with the HHR Panel.
Out front, the NV2500 has plenty of today's Nissan face in the drawing, but at the sides, the lack of windows highlights the vehicle's commercial-facing mission. Although with a commercial vehicle, it seems like overkill to us to do any sort of side vent in the fenders as depicted in the drawing unless they are actually functional. You can be assured that Nissan will cram plenty of solutions for commercial applications along the lines of what Ford did with its Transit stand on last year's auto show circuit.
We'll keep an eye on developments surrounding the NV2500 and the rest of the vehicles set for display at Detroit as the show's January press days draw closer.
