NISSAN Cyprus has launched a raft of new commercial vehicles and confidently declared that its aim is to match the success of its passenger vehicle sales in Cyprus, where the Japanese marque, imported by Char. Pilakoutas, holds the highest percentage of Nissan market share of any European market.
Nissan is bringing a market-leading innovation to the Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) market with the introduction of a five year, or 160,000 km Manufacturer Warranty for its range of petrol and diesel trucks and vans. The Manufacturer Warranty covers a comprehensive array of component and chassis elements, from powertrain and battery through to paintwork. The warranty even extends to include Nissan Genuine accessories.
Ponz Pandikuthira, Director of Light Commercial Vehicles for Nissan Europe said: “Nissan has a long heritage in LCVs and we intend to grow our presence in this market across Europe. Meeting and exceeding the needs and preferences of our customers is a priority. This innovative five year Manufacturer Warranty was developed following in depth research among our LCV customers to understand what they valued most.
Launching this market-leading LCV warranty is testament to Nissan’s confidence in the quality of our vehicles and the peace of mind we wish to offer our customers across Europe.”
Nissan has one of the widest ranges of LCVs in Europe, which includes the popular Navara pick-up and all-new NP300, the NV200 and NV400 vans and NT400 Cabstar and NT500 trucks.
“Designed to suit a variety of uses, Nissan’s vans and pick-ups provide cleverly-designed cargo spaces and the latest technological features as options, including rear view camera and NissanC onnect Navigation system. The LCVs provide for a wide range of applications, with impressive manoeuvrability, high levels of driver comfort and affordable cost of ownership from versatile and durable chassis and cabs,” says the manufacturer.
Powertrains range from the NV200’s 1.5dCi through the NV400’s 2.3 diesel to the 2.5 unit on the NT400 which comes either as a chassis, a flatbed or with a tilting rear end. There’s also a zero-emissions all-electric version of the NV200, with a range of 170 kilometres, which will significantly cut costs for companies doing local deliveries. Motor Mail will be testing the eNV200 in the near future.
Prices start from €16,900 up to €26,500 for the flatbed light lorry (€28,500 for the tilting version).
