    Ski Slopes, Snow Tracks, and e-4ORCE: Nissan's Trailblazing Rescue

    Discover Nissan's X-Trail Mountain Rescue, a testament to the prowess of e-4ORCE all-wheel drive technology, showcasing its extraordinary traction capabilities on European ski slopes.

In a bold display of innovation and versatility, Nissan takes its cutting-edge e-4ORCE all-wheel drive technology to the heart of European ski slopes with the specially modified X-Trail Mountain Rescue vehicle. 

The X-Trail Mountain Rescue stands as a testament to Nissan's dedication to pushing the boundaries of conventional driving experiences. Equipped with snow tracks replacing traditional wheels, the vehicle ensures confident traction on slippery slopes, making it an ideal companion for rescue missions in snow-covered mountainous regions.

The removal of rear seats facilitates the installation of a stretcher, allowing injured skiers to be transported seamlessly to the nearest medical facility, accompanied by a seat for a medical professional.

Externally, the X-Trail Mountain Rescue boasts a bespoke roof rack designed to carry essential rescue equipment, including an evacuation stretcher and snow shovels. The vehicle features a siren, flashing light bar, and powerful roof-mounted lights, enhancing visibility in challenging weather conditions.

Wider fenders and a reinforced towing hook at the front and rear, along with foot boards on the sides, further contribute to the vehicle's adaptability in rugged environments.

The true star of this showcase is Nissan's e-4ORCE all-wheel drive system, which powers the X-Trail Mountain Rescue with unparalleled efficiency and control. The system, unique in its ability to react to changing levels of grip in a fraction of a second, offers a level of traction and stability that is essential in rescue operations on challenging terrains. This technology exemplifies Nissan's commitment to delivering not just a vehicle but a comprehensive solution tailored for specific needs.

The X-Trail Mountain Rescue's presence on European ski slopes is part of Nissan's broader "Ride Responsibly" campaign, promoting courteous slope etiquette and safety.

Digital signs strategically placed in ski resorts encourage snow riders to slow down at intersections, reducing the risk of collisions. The X-Trail Mountain Rescue, displayed at the popular Italian ski resort of Cervinia, becomes a tangible representation of responsible winter sports practices, combining safety with cutting-edge automotive technology.

This initiative aligns with Nissan's broader vision of utilizing technology not just for convenience but for creating safer, more efficient, and reliable transportation solutions that cater to diverse needs and environments.

    We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
