MISSISSAUGA, ONT. – Today, Nissan announced it will showcase for the first time in Canada, the all-new Nissan NV200 compact cargo van at the 2013 Montreal International Auto Show in January. The NV200 is set to join the growing lineup of Nissan Commercial Vehicles in early 2013 at 44 Nissan Commercial Vehicle dealerships across Canada.
“There is an increasing need for a ‘right-sized’ van that optimizes cargo space while offering the best possible fuel economy and an affordable price – the exact sweet spots of the innovative new Nissan NV200,” said Judy Wheeler, Director of Marketing at Nissan Canada Inc. “Businesses today, both large and small, are also looking for vehicles that represent their brands in the best light – smart, innovative, and professional. NV200 does that and much more, and we’re delighted to display it for the first time in Canada in one of Nissan’s top Canadian markets – Montreal.”
Less than two years after Nissan’s successful entry into the commercial vehicle business in Canada, Nissan is expanding the lineup with the addition of the NV200. The NV200 is the third commercial vehicle offering from Nissan Canada 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 stable mates, 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 Canadian cargo van and small pickup buyers looking for a compact, efficient alternative to their larger, less fuel-efficient vehicles.
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. Taxi versions of the NV200 have already been unveiled in Tokyo and it has also been chosen as the exclusive New York City ‘Taxi of tomorrow.’ The NV200 London Taxi is the latest example of Nissan’s exciting global vision for the private hire industry.
