Nissan has expanded its van line-up further with a new compact offering that boasts a class-leading warranty.
The NV250 is based on sister firm Renault’s Kangoo model, with buyers having two length options – L1 and L2 – with the latter option being the largest by 39cm. Panel and Crew cab (with rear seats) are available, too, along with the option of having two or three front seats.
One Renault-sourced 1.5-litre diesel engine is offered, with outputs of 79bhp, 94bhp and 113bhp available. The Euro 6D-Temp compliant engines are said to offer low running costs for businesses.
The NV250 has a payload of up to 800kg, which makes the model particularly versatile in the light commercial vehicle sector. Alongside the Kangoo, the new NV250 also shares its underpinnings with the Mercedes Citan.
A key highlight of the NV250 is that it comes with an industry-leading five-year, 100,000-mile warranty as standard.
Paolo D’Ettore, light commercial vehicles director for Nissan Europe, said “The new Nissan NV250 is the perfect compact van for small businesses with big aspirations. By enabling customers to choose the version that is just right for them, the NV250 encourages more agile business deliveries and greater leisure freedom.”
No prices and spec details have been announced for the new NV250, but they will be revealed by the time the van goes on sale in September.
It will also reach showrooms alongside an upgraded version of Nissan’s electric e-NV200 van, which now boasts a 40kWh battery offering up to 124 miles of range.
