Nissan Super Tall Dayz Roox Minicar in Japan

Japanese carmaker Nissan has announced the launch of the Dayz Roox, an all-new, taller version of the Dayz kei, which we had the opportunity to see for the first time last year. The carmaker has designed the second version for the series as a super height wagon-type minicar that comes with automatic sliding rear doors all for an easier access in the car. The two best things about the model are that it delivers both spaciousness and ease-of-use, according to the carmaker. The engineers have designed the model with Around View Monitor that comes with a virtual 360-degree view of the car, great UV-cut heat-insulated green glass that filters out up to 99 % of ultraviolet rays and a touch screen automatic air-conditioning system which sounds really good.

The new Dayz Roox comes with sliding side automatic doors with tinted glass all around the body. This actually creates a great effect making the roof look like it is floating. The model has an interesting interior with a height of 1.400 mm which can accommodate a 27-inch bike, just to make a better idea. Under the hood we can also find a new battery-assist technology developed by the NKMV joint venture between Nissan and Mitsubishi. This helps by charging the nickel-hydrogen battery during deceleration. As it reduces the need for power from the alternator, fuel consumption is being reduces and this is how the engine loses a lot of stress. Under the hood, the model hides a 0.7-liter 3-cylinder petrol engine capable of generating 48 horsepower. The starting price for the model was established at $12.174 in Japan.
