Nissan will expand its Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) range with the introduction of the Nissan NV300, a new mid-sized van that will sit between the NV200 and NV400 as successor to the popular Primastar.
The all-new NV300 will go on sale later this year, with the aim of strengthening Nissan’s position as an LCV manufacturer in Europe.
The NV300 will be covered by Nissan’s five-year/100,000 miles LCV manufacturer warranty.
Philippe Guérin-Boutaud, corporate vice president, Nissan LCV, said: “The new NV300 will be an important contributor to deliver Nissan’s ambitious plans to grow its LCV business in Europe."
The van's predecessor was based on the Renault Trafic/Vauxhall Vivaro, and a deal has been signed to produce the new Nissan at the Sandouville factory where the Trafic is built - so it is likely the Nissan vehicle will bear similarities to these models.
Renault is also set to build the replacement Fiat Scudo van at the plant, but no details have been released yet.
