Nissan has unveiled the Nissan Paramedic Concept at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. The commercial vehicle concept is apparently in a near-production form. Here are its live images from the Japanese show, courtesy Autoc one.
The Nissan Paramedic Concept is a preview of the fifth generation Nissan ambulance. Since the beginning, Nissan has sold the Nissan ambulance exclusively in Japan. The company has built the Paramedic Concept on the basis of the NV350 Caravan. The Paramedic Concept contains essential life-saving equipment to respond to emergencies. It carries a 1.6 kWh lithium-ion auxiliary battery for life-saving medical equipment required in case of an emergency or for patients in remote areas.
The Nissan Paramedic Concept is 5,440 mm long, 1,880 mm wide and 2,490 mm tall. It is powered by the QR25DE 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine, which is linked to a 5-speed automatic transmission. This petrol mill produces 147 PS at 5,600 rpm and 213 Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm in the regular Nissan NV350.
The fifth-gen Nissan ambulance evolving from the Nissan Paramedic Concept will go on sale in FY2018. Nissan aims to double the annual sales of the ambulance with fifth-gen model’s launch. Along with the Paramedic Concept, Nissan is showcasing the facelifted Nissan NV350 Caravan also at the Japanese show.
