Nissan’s Thunder-Blue Frontier Sentinel Concept Aims to Save LivesNovember 8th, 2018
Nissan is at the 2018 São Paulo Motor Show, the same show where VW showed off its Tarok concept this week, with a concept of its own called the Frontier Sentinel (PDF). This truck concept is designed for rescue operations on any terrain.
It started life as a normal Frontier truck, but this one packs some pretty big upgrades. Its bed contains a system stores a pair of Nissan LEAF battery packs to provide power for rescue operations. The strengthened roll bar has a pair of electric outlets and can store rescue equipment. The top of the bed also has a deployable platform to allow drones to take off and land, to help assess an emergency situation from the sky.
The truck’s cool Thunder-Blue and Electric Yellow color scheme was inspired by the Brazilian hyacinth macaw parrot. Inside, the concept has a yellow dash and trim that is inspired by electric circuits.
