Nissan has revealed the first official image of its all-new NV300 mid-sized van.
Featuring styling cues from the company’s pioneering crossover range, it is a successor to their Primastar and will fill the gap between the NV200 and NV400. From what Nissan describes as its latest “emotional geometry” design language, as found in the class-leading Juke, Qashqai, and X-Trail crossovers, it is clear to see it being translated to the NV300’s styling, with the familiar ‘V-motion’ grille dominating the front end.
Nissan reminds us that it is the official light commercial vehicle (LCV ) partner of the UEFA Champions League. As a result, the NV300 has played a role in the build-up to the match. It carried the official flag of the final at the start of its journey to the San Siro stadium in Milan, Italy. The flag took pride of place in the centre circle during the half-time break, and was witnessed first-hand by thousands of fans and millions of TV viewers worldwide.
When it arrives in showrooms in the autumn, Nissan says that the NV300 will further strengthen Nissan’s position as an LCV manufacturer with one of the widest ranges in Europe. It includes the new Navara pick-up and the pioneering zero-emission e-NV200.
It adds that key to its appeal will be the NV300’s market-leading warranty. Unique in the segment, it is a five-year/160,000km pan-European, manufacturer-backed policy that is fully transferrable to second and subsequent owners. It includes five years roadside assistance cover. Nissan also says that for complete peace of mind, the warranty extends to all Nissan genuine accessories, demonstrating the confidence Nissan has in the quality and reliability of its LCVs and aftersales programmes. More on this, including the engines, load capacity, and pricing will be available in September, in advance of the launch later in the year.
