Datsun/ Nissan Cabstar Cabstar F22 (1982-1992)
Diesel engines : SD25 SD33 TD23 TD27
The Nissan Cabstar F22 was a light commercial vehicle of the Japanese automobile manufacturer Nissan from 1982 to 1992.
Unlike most other vehicles in its class, the Cabstar had a ladder frame body, as is common in larger trucks . As a result, the stability of the body is higher and larger trailer loads (up to 3.5 t) are possible. The Cabstar was designed in the cab design and the cab sat directly on the engine . Since there was no bonnet in the classic sense, resulted in a high maneuverability and longer cargo area with the same external length.
Originally, the model came in 1968 as Datsun Cabstar on the market, from 1976, however, a badge engineering model of Nissan Homer . Technically related to the Nissan Caball C340 and its sister model Nissan Clipper C340, the Cabstar / Caball offered a payload of 1-1.5 tonnes, the Caball or Clipper 2-4 tonnes payload. In 1981, this led to the fact that Nissan replaced the technical standardization of its lower commercial vehicle area in 1976, now all light truck model series by only one model, the Nissan Atlas . The acquisition of Ebro in Spain also resulted in a local production of the Atlas forEurope possible which began in 1982. For this Nissan also retained the already well-known commercial vehicle name Datsun Cabstar. The acquisition of Ebro also brought the similar but technically backward Ebro F-Series and the higher payload Ebro L / M series into the distribution program. Ebro was represented more in Southern Europe and the Japanese car manufacturers offered in the commercial vehicle sector mostly only small trucks up to a maximum total weight of 7.5 tons. Therefore, the Cabstar was offered in Europe at the beginning only with known payload up to 1 ton, while the Atlas was available up to 4 tons of payload and later differed in design between smaller and larger payload.
By the decision to discontinue the sales of Datsun Cabstar was marketed from 1984 as Nissan. In addition to Europe, the name Cabstar is also used in parts of Asia , South America and until 2010 in North America instead of Atlas or only for the smaller variant of the Atlas. While the Cabstar built by Nissan Motor Ibérica is exported to Europe in addition to Europe in the Middle East and as Samsung SV110 to South Korea , the Cabstar is also in Mexicobuilt for South America and partly delivered to Asia. By 2010, the Atlas with higher payload than Cabstar for the North American market was produced here.
As a supplement to the Cabstar in the European commercial vehicle program came from 1990 based on the Ebro L / M series Nissan L / M series and later as Nissan Eco-T and revised from 2000 as Nissan Atleon , on the respective markets.
Through the merger of Renault and Nissan to Renault-Nissan , the Cabstar was produced from 2007 by badge engineering as Renault Maxity . In 2014, the Nissan NT300 / 400 will replace the Cabstar and the Renault Maxity in Europe.
The Datsun Cabstar F22 launched in February 1982 in the home market as a Nissan Atlas 100/150 with 1 or 1.5 tonnes payload. In addition to the gasoline engine type Z16 and Z20, the diesel engines SD23, SD25 and SD33 were available. The body came largely from the Nissan Homy 2nd generation and was similar to the Datsun Urvan . Parallel to this, the front view windows in the front doors did not appear in 1983 and a larger Nissan brand logo appeared in Japan.
These revisions also received the European Cabstar from 1984 when the name of Datsun was changed to Nissan. Unlike in Japan, there were only the Z20 1952 cc gasoline engine with 60 kW (82 hp) and the SD25 2488 cc diesel engine in the 53 kW (72 hp) variant. From 1983 was also the SD33 3298 cc diesel engine with 71 kW (96 hp) available and the SD25 with 59 kW (80 hp) available.
From October 1986 came the TD27 2663 cc 66 kW (90 hp) and the TD23 2289 cc with 50 kW (68 hp) turbodiesel Cabstar in the offer, as well as the Z22 2188 cc gasoline engine with 71kW (97 hp). At the same time, the performance of the Z20 2.0 L petrol engine increased to 64 kW (87 hp) and the revised Z16 1595 cc petrol engine with intake manifold injection and 62 kW (84 hp) was also introduced. The Cabstar was now also like the atlas with four-wheel drive , first only with the gasoline engines, available. From the end of 1987, all-wheel drive was also available in conjunction with the TD engines.
