The new Primera received its world debut at this week's Fleet Show at the NEC, Birmingham, where 250 VIP fleet managers were invited to a special 'behind closed doors' sneak preview of the new car. As revealed by Fleet NewsNet, a 1.8-litre petrol engine will be added to the Primera line-up when the new car goes on sale on September 1.
Nissan has also launched a liquefied petroleum gas dual fuel option costing £1,950 on the Primera 2.0 SX hatchback and 2.0 GX estate models. The gas powered Primeras are covered by Nissan's three-year/60,000-mile mechanical warranty. Under the Government-funded Powershift scheme incentivising fleets to buy alternative fuels by reimbursing up to 75% of the conversion costs, the Primera qualifies for the maximum cash-back giving fleets a refund of £1,462.
