Nissan introduces the Navara EnGuard rescue concept at the Hannover Motor Show image

The ongoing event is home to the premiere of the most rugged and tough Navara to date, a concept that has been created purposely to survive in the most grueling conditions.

The EnGuard concept is based off the regular Double Cab Tekna version and even has a companion – a drone delivering images to a pop-up high-definition screen installed in the Navara’s load bed wall. Aside from having its own “guardian angel”, the concept also features a prototype portable battery pack using technology linked to the Leaf development program. The batteries can be docked and will regenerate using the concept’s biturbodiesel 2.3-liter, four-cylinder engine packing 190 horsepower. There are seven modules and all of them get protected within a weatherproof machined aluminum casing.

This specialty pickup truck also has power sockets on each side of the load bed, with Nissan’s engineers also fitting there two pull-out trays made from fiberglass – allowing access to all sorts of necessary elements: oxygen tank, resuscitation kit, buoyancy aids, rope, two-way radios, life jackets, and even an axe. The EnGuard concept sits 50 mm (2 inches) higher than a standard Navara and has additional plastic body protection on the wheel arches as well as grippy 285/75/R16 off-road tires. The roof has been raised 136 mm (5.3 inches) and has a 360-degree LED lighting system, has a powerful winch built into the reshaped rear bumper, along with a full-size spare wheel underneath the load bed.
