Inspired by the tiny Citroen 2CV camionette, the Nissan S-Cargo was launched at the 1989 Tokyo Motor Show and remained in production until 1992 during which time around 12,000 were made. The name stood for ‘Small Cargo’ but was also a pun on ‘escargot’, French for ‘snail’, a creature which the van somewhat resembled. Based on the Nissan Sunny platform, it shared its running gear with the Nissan Micra and was powered by a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine driving through a three-speed automatic gearbox. All were right-hand drive and had air conditioning, power steering and fold-flat rear seats as standard.
