SÃO PAULO, Brazil – Nissan has begun offering vehicles for people with special needs in Brazil. One of the first customers is Flavio Tamura. He recently received the keys of his white Nissan Kicks S Direct, a model exclusive to people with special needs, at the Itavema Japan dealership in São Paulo, Brazil. The local entrepreneur was the first buyer of the special Kicks model, which has been assembled in Resende since June.
Tamura has been a loyal Nissan customer for five years.
"I always liked Nissan, especially for the Japanese quality that the brand delivers," said Tamura. "My first model was a Livina that has always met my needs as a wheelchair user."
Tamura saw the Nissan Kicks during its global debut on the eve of the Olympic Games last year in Brazil. Since then, he has been waiting for the Kicks with this special configuration.
"I prepared all the documentation ahead of time to be the first one to have this car," said Tamura. "As soon as Kicks S Direct was launched, I ran to the dealership to buy mine. In less than 15 days, the car was already in my hands."
As a tall wheelchair user, interior space is something crucial for Tamura.
"I am 1.8 meters high, and my legs do not always fit well in most of the cars I try," said Tamura. "But with the internal space of the Kicks, I can drive very comfortably."
Tamura also approves of the size of the cargo area where he carries his wheelchair.
