What is it ? The Honda Elysion is a people carrier from Japan that we are about to start and import and convert. It was first built in 2004 and is a really high spec people carrier and it’s very similar to the Toyota Alphard, Nissan Elgrand, Toyota Regius size. For more info please follow this link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honda_Elysion you will see the Elysion was class leading when it was fist built.
Why the Elysion ? For a few years we converted the Honda Stepwagon and on the i-VTEC engine versions they were fantastic to drive and ultra-reliable. The problem with the Stepwagon was they were a bit tight on space inside and the Elysion is slightly larger. We have been watching the Elysion with interest over the last few months and decided to start importing and converting them.
What’s good about it ? The Elysion will be having a full side conversion using the new Vitrifrigo 25ltr front loading fridge, 2 ring glass top hob and sink, 2KW blown air night heater, mains hook up, leisure battery, on board fresh & waste water, solar panel. The main difference with the Elysion to all other imports we have done is that it will keep the original sliding seat system which is on full length tracks and this will work like the Ford Terrier camper we do so the seat will slide up and down the vehicle using its original sliding seat frames and seatbelts. We should be able to offer a upper roof bed for 2 x small children.
This will be the first time we have offered a used Japanese based vehicle with such a comprehensive spec including night heater, solar panel, sliding rear seat, solar panel and a 3 year warranty all as standard spec.
Prices ? These will be from £20,000 for something like a 2004 version with 60,000 miles. As with all models we offer from Japan we will be able to find specific vehicles so if you want a 30,000 3.0V6 4WD version with less than 40,000 miles then we can find it for you. Because of import rules the base vehicle has to be 10 years old at the date of registration.
“NEUSED” Ford Terrier USED with new conversion
Now the Ford Customs are nearly 3 years old, we are starting to convert used models with new conversions. The base spec of these Customs will vary but the prices will be around £29,000 depending on the specs. These will have the same Terrier 2 conversion and crash tested sliding seat as a new one and also new single cab seats but things like Eberspacher heater, electric step & solar panel are not standard but can be added as extras. Estimated start date: Already started and available to order.
The new Toyota Proace is a joint venture with Toyota, Citroen and Peugeot and is going to be under 2m high and is 4.95m long. We have already seen the base vehicle and development is underway. It will have a sliding rear seat like the Ford and Mercedes Vito, German SCA roof and side conversion. We are still awaiting pricing and are still in discussions about what the spec will be, the Toyota will be cheaper than the Vito and the Ford. These are great looking vehicles and the base vehicle will have a 5 year warranty. Estimated start date: In development now and hopefully launched at the NEC show in October.
Toyota Alphard Hi-top
This is the same conversion as the standard Alphard we have been doing for a couple of years but with option of a high top rather than elevating roof. This will give full headroom and cupboards front and rear, it will also have a roof light and top side windows. Estimated start date: Already available to order on any of the Alphards we have in stock and the price is the same as a standard elevating roof model.
