Nissan Navara NP300 Hardtops Glazed Avantgarde Canopy With Central Locking Plus High Security Package
Hi, my name is Alec from Pegasus.
I'm here today to talk to you about the latest 2018 version of the Avant-garde hardtop, designed and made by Pegasus.
Now what we do at Pegasus is design each hardtop for each vehicle so that this one is specifically designed for the Navara. We will be making exactly the same features applicable that are on this hardtop for the Ford Ranger, the Volkswagen Amarok and the new Mercedes X Class.
But just talking about design features now for the Navara on this particular vehicle you can see that on this curvature of the door, here, you try to pick up on a line here, so that blends in – and also if you look at the side wing, with a curve going down, there's a curve indented there to pick up on that line as well.
So, what we tried to do is create the overall effect that this hardtop was part of the vehicle, and not on afterthought or an add on.
All Pegasus hardtops are made from high-strength fiberglass, so extremely robust, and they are painted in high quality ICI or du Pont paint. We use that level of quality paint because I've seen on hard tops, now 12/15 years on still in daily use, and they have not lost any of the shine –not faded in any way, shape or form. So, it pays dividends to use quality paint.
On the 2018 model now we have roof bars as we've always done, but you've got the option of either having them fitted or not fitted. Now the reason we've done that is because some customers say to us: look, I like the lines of the vehicle, I'm never going to put anything on top, I'd rather not have the black roof bars fitted so can we leave them out?
Now we designed the interior lining so we can remove or add these roof bars as you wish. If you do use the black roof bar’s they are capable of supporting about 85/95 kilos, so if you're carrying ladders next to timber, copper pipe, whatever it may be, it will carry that sort of weight quite easily.
One of the features of the Avantgarde is a lift up side door (or gull wing door some people call it). It's actually a solid door, as opposed to most of our competitors’ just using a single piece of glass. The reason we've gone for the solid door is (a) because it's a quality door that closes properly like a car door. Secondly, you haven't got to fluff around with a key to unlock a piece of glass, which is the only way it can be done – one side here and one side there – and thirdly we've got central locking on these side doors, which our customers with glazed hard tops can’t incorporate.
If I open the door, you'll see that there's a panel here that incorporates that central locking, and also one of the other features that I’ve added in 2018 is a plunger switch for the interior light, which you'll see going on and going off. The reason we put the plunger switch on the sides is that previously we only had it on the rear door, but because people want to come in at the side to get something out, the light will come on automatically – a bit like a car door: whichever door you open the light will come on.
If I shut the door down and press the locking, that door is locked. So it’s a proper full integrated locking system with the vehicle.
Now I’ll come round the back. Point to some of the features we’ve got here which is an integrated rear spoiler, and a third brake light. The rear glass is 70% tinted and incorporates within it the heated rear screen element.
Now I’ll open up the rear door so we can now talk about the interior of the hardtop and some of the features we've added.
If we look at the front of the hardtop first of all, you'll notice I've got sliding glass. Now the reason I’ve got sliding glass is two-fold: one, it is the only way you can clean the rear window of the pickup. Without it you can't access it from the side – this will open 50% one way, or slide 50% the other, so you can clean that rear screen.
The other important reason why I've got this rear window with so much ventilation applicable is because at least half of our customers have got dogs, and of course they want them to have a lot of ventilation. This allows that to happen without them being able to escape, or get out or whatever may be.
Talking about pets and animals, we also thought about that with our hardtop, which is why the roof is double skinned fiberglass. Then I've added this suspended roof lining which gives a third layer of insulation. The idea behind that is that during the summer months, on a hot day, it keeps it very, very cool in here.
The interior light is an LED light - it's an automatic light and it works off the plunger switch off any of these three doors.
Another feature is that we always supply a Pegasus umbrella as part of the package with our hard tops so you'll see that fitted at the front.
Now on the 2018 security package which we've added to our hardtops, part of that is this metal mesh to all the insides of the glazed exterior doors. The reason we've done that is that if somebody broke into the hardtop, smashed the glass, previously they would then be able to reach in to get it whatever was inside the vehicle. By having this security mesh fitted, which is not visible from the outside at all so doesn't affect the looks of the hardtop in any way, shape or form, the advantage is if they break the glass, that's as far as they're gonna get; they're certainly not going to get past that metal mesh.
And the other feature (which I'll demonstrate later) that we've added to the hardtop should anybody break one of these doors – even break the glass – the minute the door is opened the hardtop is now linked to the vehicle alarm itself, so if any of these doors are opened the vehicle alarm will go off. At that point I don't believe any criminal, burglar or call it what you may is going to hang about and steal the contents of what you've got inside your hard top. So, whether you're a vet carrying drugs, or you've got your precious pet inside, you can feel secure that with a Pegasus hardtop everything you’ve got inside is going to stay inside.
So, if I close up the tailgate shut the door down and lock it that hardtop is now totally secure and alarmed.
I have to wait 30 secs for it to set but in a bit – the only way I can demonstrate this is to use the manual key supplied with each hardtop; it’s a fail-safe system – now, unlock the door manually and open the door. I believe the alarm’s going to go off (alarm sounds).
That is all part of our security package. So you've got the interior mesh to prevent anybody getting past the glass, and you've got the alarm system on each and every door so it doesn't matter which one on either side the alarm’s gonna go off.
So I'm very, very pleased with this 2018 hardtop. I think it incorporates every feature people would possibly want. You know Pegasus do make the very best hardtops; I really believe that. And they come with a three year parts warranty on everything except the glass, of course, and will give you many years of good service.
Thank you for listening
