“It is efficient in difficult terrain and is offered with Nissan’s e-power technology, a hybrid solution in which the electric motor is the only engine that works as a propulsion system thanks to the energy provided by a petrol engine to the battery,” The statement read.

Ford Ranger

The Ford Ranger was described as “a reliable, stylish and charismatic pick-up. It moves with ease over any terrain. It’s as efficient as an off-roader, but more practical thanks to its cargo box.”
