The Navara EnGuard Concept uses the same engine that powers the double-cab variant of the regular Navara pickup truck.

The 2.3-litre twin-turbo diesel engine produces 190bhp and 450Nm of torque. The diesel engine is also used to recharge two 2kW units taken from the Nissan Leaf.

Nissan has made a few mechanical and design changes to the EnGuard to make it stand out from the other Navaras around and to highlight its rescue capabilities.

The ride height has been boosted by 50mm. The concept truck features wider tracks on both the front and rear.

The adjustable suspension and the 285-profile off-road tyres will help the EnGuard deal with the rough stuff as well.

Also present isan air intake snorkel even lets the concept truck wade through deep rivers.

The loadbay of the pickup truck concept plays host to all the extra kit that makes this a rescue truck. Pull out trays containing everything from walkie talkies and radios to oxygen tanks, life jacket and even an axe.

Underneath the pull out trays sit the two 2kW battery packs from the Nissan leaf which are housed in weather-proof aluminium housings.

These heavy duty battery packs can be used to operate heavy lifting or specialized cutting tools, and can be used to power search lights and heat sources.

Also present is a DJI Phantom 4 drone which can fly about and relay images to a rescue team on the 20.5-inch HD screen fitted on the truck.
