- 2013 Nissan NV200 makes Canadian premiere at the Montreal International
Auto Show -
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Jan. 17, 2013 /CNW/ - Today, Nissan presented for the
first time in Canada, the all-new Nissan NV200 compact cargo van at the
2013 Montreal International Auto Show (MIAS). The third addition to
Nissan's commercial vehicle lineup in Canada boasts several
segment-leading features including: best-in-class fuel economy of 8.7
L/100 km city, 7.1 L/100 km highway, best-in-class turning radius for
manoeuvering in tight city spaces, and other accommodating features
such as Tire Pressure Monitoring System, low clearance height for easy
indoor parking, and a conveniently low loading height.
The NV200 is the third commercial vehicle offering from Nissan following
the full-size Nissan NV Cargo, introduced in Canada in March 2011, and
the full-size Nissan NV Passenger Van which launched in April 2012.
Like its cohorts, the NV200 offers some of the best examples of
innovation in its segment - drawing on Nissan's 75-year experience with
commercial vehicles. The Nissan NV200 provides a new entry point for
current cargo van and small pickup buyers looking for a compact,
efficient alternative to their larger, less fuel-efficient vehicles.
"This is a very exciting time for Nissan as we are in the midst of our
strongest product offensive to date with five new models in 15 months."
said Christian Meunier, President, Nissan Canada Inc. "The NV200
provides small business owners with what they need most: thoughtful
technology, best-in-class fuel economy, comfort, manoeuvrability and
functional design at an affordable price. We look forward to
announcing pricing in February and welcoming it to our 44 certified NV
dealers across Canada this spring."
While new to North America, the Nissan NV200 compact van is already in
use in more than 40 countries around the world, receiving acclaim from
both users and media alike for its optimal functionality and smart
design. Having won the 2010 International Van of the Year award in
Europe, and the 2010 Commercial Delivery Van (CDV) of the Year in
China, NV200 has also established a presence as the strong segment
leader in Japan with a wide-ranging lineup. NV200 was chosen as the
exclusive New York City 'Taxi of Tomorrow' and is the latest example of
Nissan's exciting global vision for the private hire industry.
