Under this background, the enclosed urban logistics vehicle which looks like bus but with the truck chassis emerge as the time require.
● 100p cab with bus shape
This minibus is modified on the basis of Qingling 100p light commercial truck. It retains the cab and chassis of 100p truck. So it looks like bus but has the same look of Isuz 100P from the front, the classic appearance of Qingling Isuzu which is similar to many domestic light commercial trucks.
A new follow-up steering headlight has been added to automatically adjust the lighting direction when the vehicle is cornering, which is very practical.
The real shot is the long version with a total body length of 6 meters and wheelbase of 3360mm. From the side , it looks completely like bus, only its inside is closed by steel plate and the windows are just serves as a decoration except the one on the door. And there are also shorter version with a total body length of nearly 5 meters, the width of 1730mm and wheelbase of 2490mm.
Another different between long version and short version is the back door. The opposite door for the long version, while the upper door for the short version to save space that the manufacturer considers that the place for the short version may be very narrow.

● Interior of 100p ISUZU 4JB1CN engine
Inside the door, there is a shallow storage slot on the black door panel, which can only hold small cards and so on and a curved handrail for easy access. The windows are hand- cranked, but the power window is also optional.
The cab is widened to accommodate three people. The steering wheel is the Isuzu classic design with a good grip. The design of the center control panel is relatively simple. On the left side of the panel is the air conditioner control switch, still the lever type, and most of the other vehicles of the same type have been replaced with knob. The right side is the radio, with USB port.
On the shift lever right side of the steering wheel, there is the exhaust brake switch. The proper use of this function can effectively alleviate the wear of brake pads. The dashboard is still the same as 100p light truck with bright yellow lettering.
There is also a space between the cab and cargo compartment, where seats can be installed or the cargo compartment can be expanded by removing the iron plate in the middle.
In terms of power, the engine of it is also the Isuzu 4JB1CN with 2.8L displacement and maximum power of 98 horsepower, same as the 100P light trucks. It comes with an Isuzu MSB-5MT five-speed manual transmission.
For the chassis, although this vehicle has the appearance of bus, it has not the McPherson front independent suspension which usually used in buses but the leaf spring structure, which has the reliability and carrying capacity(5 tons) of commercial vehicles. And the tires, Chaoyang 195/75R16, are also for light trucks.
This 100p closed van truck provides more option for urban logistic. It has both the appearance of bus and the carrying capacity of trucks. And it is very suitable for some truck-limited area.
