Andrew says of the NV300: “It is the successor to the hugely successful Nissan Primastar, and this new model propels the brand back into the heart of the all-important M-Van segment.”
The arrival of the new NV-300 both strengthens and completes Nissan’s impressive LCV line-up and gives Nissan one of the broadest commercial vehicle ranges on the market. With a highly competitive pricing structure, a huge variety of variants, and a platform ideally suited to conversion – all backed by Nissan’s comprehensive and award-winning five-year/100,000 mile warranty – the NV300 is expected to prove popular with both owner drivers and fleets.
Andrew speaks of the variants available saying: “The NV300 is available as a panel van, crew van and as a combi passenger vehicle with seating for up to nine people. In addition, a platform cab version is offered as a ‘rolling chassis’ and is the perfect platform for bespoke conversions. We can source any of these variants and have vans ply-lined and kitted out with storage racking etc. to suit the business needs.”
The NV300 model is both flexible and versatile. For example, panel van customers can specify either a short or long wheelbase, each available in two heights and all (except the crew van) able to carry a minimum of three Europallets. There are also numerous rear tailgate and side door combinations – solid or glazed – for maximum customisation potential.
Customers can further tailor the NV300 to meet their needs by choosing from one of three distinct trim options – Nissan’s now familiar entry level Visia, mid-range Acenta and feature-packed, range-topping Tekna. Each variant is packed with advanced Nissan technology and safety features in line with the brand’s Intelligent Mobility strategy.
Under the bonnet lies Nissan’s tried and trusted Euro 6 compliant 1.6-litre dCi diesel engine, available with a choice of four power outputs – 95hp, 120hp, 125hp and 145hp – all mated with a six-speed manual transmission. This highly efficient powerplant offers fuel returns of up to 50.4 mpg (combined cycle) and emissions as low as 145g/km CO2. NOX emissions are reduced thanks to Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology; using AdBlue.
In addition, the proven track record of the NV300’s engine means Nissan has been able to extend service intervals to two years / 25,000 miles, keeping running costs and TCO to an absolute minimum.
Andrew concludes: “We have been waiting for this addition to our commercial vehicle portfolio and it means we are now competing with other brands across the small to large van range with our existing NV200 van and Combi, the Cabstar dropside or tipper and the all-new NP300 Navara pick-up. Unlike many other brands we also have the all-electric eNV200 van on offer.
“Nissan have the light commercial vehicle to suit most business needs.”
