Nissan unveils commerical van at NTEA Show

04 2011 Nissan NVThe 2011 Nissan NV (Nissan Van) marks Nissan’s first entry into the commercial vehicle market in North America.  Scheduled to launch in late 2010, the Nissan NV will be available in three models, NV1500, NV2500 HD and NV3500 HD, and in two roof configurations – Standard Roof and High Roof.  The NV is the first High Roof commercial van to offer rugged body-on-frame construction.  High Roof models allow most users to walk and stand in the cargo area.

 The NV’s rugged, masculine design combines a full-length hood with access to the engine for service and maintenance, along with signature Nissan styling cues such as large headlights and vertical grille.  The broad bodysides project a serious commercial vehicle appearance and provide ample room for company logos or advertising messages.  The tall, wide doors offer easy access to the cab and cargo areas.

 Inside the cab is a roomy comfortable interior with wide, supportive seating and an expansive instrument panel.  The passenger seat includes a segment-exclusive fold-down feature, providing a convenient worktable.  An available center console offers innovative storage compartments and space to hold binders and a laptop computer.  Other convenient storage spaces include a wide overhead console (available with High Roof models) and large door pockets.

 The NV also provides exceptional utility, thanks to a long, wide cargo floor, square-top wheelwell housings and nearly vertical sidewalls.  Along with maximizing cargo space, the sidewalls accommodate aftermarket storage systems without excessive modification.  The cargo area also features a full-length inner panel to prevent cargo from denting the vehicle’s outer skin.  There are also multiple weld-nut attachment points for mounting shelving and racks.

 Powering the rear-wheel drive Nissan NV will be a choice of two powerful yet fuel-efficient engines – a 4.0-liter V6 and 5.6-liter V8.  Both will be mated to a standard 5-speed automatic transmission.
