Mississauga, Ontario – Nissan has presented the North American premiere of the all-new NV Passenger Van at the Montreal International Auto Show.

“Bringing new technologies and exciting vehicles to market is an important part of our commitment to delivering innovation for all,” said Jean-Luc Lemire, director of sales and operations for Nissan Canada. “Over the next few years, we will continue to increase and improve our offerings to Canadians, including innovation in every segment, an average of 15 technologies per year and a strong focus on sustainable mobility.”

Just one year after its entry into the commercial vehicle business in North America with the Nissan NV commercial van series, Nissan will expand the lineup this spring with the new NV3500 HD Passenger Van. Offered for both personal and fleet use, the four-row/12-passenger van features the most flexible seating configurations in the full-size passenger van segment, along with one of the highest standard horsepower and torque ratings.

The company also showed the Nissan Leaf NISMO RC prototype, its first appearance in Canada, which demonstrates the untapped potential of electric vehicles. The powertrain is a 100 per cent zero-emission advanced lithium-ion battery design, as with the Leaf, while the RC, for Racing Competition, brings a new meaning to the term “Racing Green.”
