First look at all-new Nissan NV300 van
Teaser image of new mid-size Nissan van shows Nissan 'family face' - but boxy body is hidden
Nissan has previewed the latest addition to its lineup of commercial vehicles – the mid-sized NV300. Built in the same factory as the Renault Trafic, it will go on to share a crowded marketplace with the likes of the new Citroen Dispatch, Ford Transit Custom, Volkswagen Transporter, Mercedes Vito and Hyundai iLoad.
The firm hasn’t revealed many details about the new NV300, but it’s fair to assume that the van will benefit from Nissan’s alliance with Renault. Expect to see similar engines and bodywork to the Trafic making an appearance – items which are also shared with the Vauxhall Vivaro and upcoming Fiat Talento. Up front, though, the NV300 will use Nissan's 'V-Motion' grille - similar to the one on its passenger cars like the Qashqai and Juke.
Nissan has promised the NV300 will benefit from the firm’s 5-year, 100,000 mile LCV warranty – which also extends to any official accessories you purchase with the van.
The Nissan NV300 will arrive in showrooms in the autumn, but more details - such as power and economy figures for the Euro6 diesel engines, load capacity and pricing - will be revealed at Hanover Motor Show in September.
