At that age, they do not need the heavy work with a pickup or need a spacious car with many passengers. Instead they want to drive myself, could for purposes of work or run a hobby on the road with cars look nice and comfortable when driving. All of these conditions exist in NB.

In terms of dimensions, NB wheelbase is longer than the Nissan Murano, but still shorter than the Nissan Quest. For the exterior, the attraction is not just on the roof mounted solar panels.Design the right side door (the driver) is longer than the left because only one door, while the left side there are two doors, which is front and center, which opened in sliding.

Peered into the interior, NB combines comfort, utility, and technologies that are grouped into three zones. For the first-called comfort zone around the driver's space. Comfort achieved with genuine leather wrapped seats. So that the driver really feel comfortable when berkendaran, the instrument was made as little as possible. So, the driver simply stepping on the gas pedal, brake, and steering play.

Therefore, the automatic transmission system and is equipped with Xtronix CVT (continuously variable transmission) that is placed on the center console button that hangs on the dashboard. Then, both drivers and passengers could relax because roomy enough leg room.

The second zone is called technology zone. Here the driver is connected with the outside world, the instrument panel is all digital, there is an LCD monitor that is placed on the dashboard that informs the condition of vehicles, navigation, radio, and tape.

Others, no telephone access, weather and traffic information, the Internet and e-mail. For music, available ranging from radio, MP3 player, up to a CD, the following speakers.

Remarkably, from the control room (in the middle), the driver can access to the house to monitor the security system, check to see air conditioning, house lights, and garage doors.

Last zone, utility. For given a seat passenger seat of the aluminum framework, including chairs in the living room. Then, in the back seat using the same material as the wall or floor cargo space.
