To make something like this work, one has to have a sustainable plan, and the new all electric Nissan camper van would be a great part of such a plan. Nissan debuted this new model at the Madrid Motor Show in Spain earlier this summer. The e-NV200 Camper is modeled after the all-electric cargo van, but modified for camping and living on the road. While some van dwellers have already chosen the Nissan electric cargo van for their travels, this new model allows them to skip the process of converting it themselves.
The e-NV200 Camper features an elevated roof, a table, a full working kitchen, and bedrooms. Amenities like stationary heating and window shades make if feel like a true, cozy home. It’s perfect for living on the road, whether it be long term or just for a weekend getaway.
For now these all-electric campers are only available overseas, but it’s still exciting to see a brand like Nissan finding ways to bring zero-emission options to niche segments like camper vans. Let’s hope the van makes its way to Haddad Nissan eventually!
Winter is just getting started and the Berkshires are looking more and more welcoming every day. The scenic views and relaxing setting create an ambiance that few places in the world can match, so without further ado here are a few reasons to visit the Berkshires this winter from us here at Haddad Nissan.
Skiing and Snowboarding
Hitting the slopes is a common occurrence at the Berkshires, which is home to six of our state’s 12 skiing areas. Powder production is already in full swing at many of the larger resorts, and more is sure to follow. That leaves plenty of options for skiers and snowboarders looking for some early winter action.
The Notchview Reservation consists of more than 3,000 acres of land, making it a perfect location for cross-country skiing. Long trails and snowshoeing locations make for an all-encompassing winter wonderland for those looking to stay active, even if it means heading out into the cold.
If you’re looking to get a good look at art housed in some of the world’s best museums, you’re in luck. The Berkshires is home to the Clark and Norman Rockwell Museums, or those looking for something new will likely find it in the Schantz Galleries in Stockbridge.
Massachusetts isn’t the largest state in the nation by a longshot, but it done offer some pretty spectacular landscapes. Here are some scenic drives in Western Massachusetts recommended by us at Haddad Nissan.
Mount Greylock stands a massive 3,491 feet tall and offers a fantastic view in all directions. Reaching as far as 90 miles away, the breathtaking views include the Mount Greylock State Reservation and farmland in Lanesborough. The scenic byway is most accessible during summer and early fall. Trails are open year round. The 1932 War Memorial Tour stands as the highest point in the park.
Jacob’s Ladder Trail
The Jacob’s Ladder Trail ventures through historic rural landscapes between Laurel Lake and Tekoa Mountain. Despite the area’s population continuing to rise over the past decades, Jacob’s Ladder Trail has remained its natural presence. Many of the sights and attractions remain the same as they were a century ago.
Route 116 is one of the hidden gems of Massachusetts. Arguably the definition of “the road less traveled,” the scenic byway is home to historic towns, welcoming communities, and a beautiful agricultural landscape. Deerfield village sits north of the byway and serves as a prime location for history buffs of all ages.
