New Nissan NV300 Van Confirmed, Will Be Produced At Renault Plant

A new mid-sized van that will slot between the NV200 and NV400 has been confirmed by Nissan, as the firm will expand its Light Commercial Vehicle range.

As expected, the new model will be called the NV300 and it will succeed the popular Primastar. The vehicle will strengthen Nissan’s position as an LCV manufacturer with a wide range in Europe and it will offer enhanced efficiency and practicality to customers.

The manufacturer will offer the new NV300 with a five-year / 100,000miles (161,000km) warranty, which will cover all Nissan genuine accessories. Those interested in the new LCV will have to wait until later this year to place an order.

The next-gen light commercial vehicle will be assembled by Renault, at its Sandouville plant, in Northwest France, alongside the new Renault Traffic, following a 3-year work and €230 million ($257 million equivalent) investment.

Adding the NV300 will increase the factory’s output by 100,000 units between 2016 and 2026. The facility is responsible for a version of the Vivaro, for Opel and Vauxhall, and it will soon begin production of the next-gen Fiat midsized van too.
