Nissan box on wheels was still a designer's dream. But the fact is that the Nissan Dayz is a model currently on sale, and this Roox version is the latest take on the micro-van, which is a popular segment in Japan.
In fact, this generation of Dayz is the first minicar that Nissan has
developed completely in-house, and the thing has been selling
astoundingly well in its first stint on the market (30k units in month
one month, says Nissan). So it's unsurprising that the company is
looking to expand the range with a model that is more fully featured.
The Roox (we have no clue as to where that name came from, or what it
means) would appear to be a high-roof version of the three-cylinder Dayz
minicar – in fact Nissan goes so far as to call it an "Impressive Super
Height Wagon." Features like automatic sliding doors, Around View
Monitor and UV-insulated glass are all luxuries in kei-class car. The press release also specifies that the Roox is tall enough to swallow a 27-inch bicycle.
