Following its global debut at the Geneva Motor Show last month, Japan will be the first market to launch this new generation global van.
The compact NV200 Vanette will be offered there from next month in two configurations - the Van GX light commercial van and the wagon 16S people carrier.
Nissan tells us that the NV200 Vanette has been designed to meet the demands of a wide-range of customers for a functional and versatile vehicle that delivers great value-for-money.
The Japanese manufacturer says that the compact van combines intelligent layout and packaging to deliver a class-leading 4.1 cubic of loading space. The wagon is a seven-seater people carrier offering a more spacious interior with car-like comfort and features.
Powered by the 1.6 litre petrol engine, Nissan says that the van also offers excellent driving performance without compromising fuel efficiency, for a low total cost of ownership.
Nissan explains that the name NV200 is derived from New generation for N, Vehicle for V, and 200 for its Van classification. Inheriting the current Vanette heritage, the name expresses the concept of the car which is a new-generation LCV that is designed for the needs of modern business.
