CV Show: Sensors standard for Interstar

NISSAN is claiming an industry first for the Interstar, launched at the CV show, in that all vans will be supplied with reversing sensors as standard.

The firm believes the sensors will lead to a reduction in parking damage, which could be a boon for fleets in cutting repair costs. The large panel van, a cousin to the Renault Master, is now on sale from £13,225 ex-VAT and comes with a choice of 1.9 80bhp, 2.2 90bhp and 2.5-litre 115bhp common rail diesel engines. It also has three wheelbases, and three roof heights.

Nissan also showed its updated Terrano van and 2002 Cabstar E, with a power and torque hike.

With its revitalised range, Nissan intends to double its van market share in the next two years, moving from niche manufacture to mainstream. Following the launch of the Interstar, the company will introduce Primastar in October and 'Kangoostar' next year.

Nick Andrews, national LCV fleet sales manager, said: 'We've had a major investment in LCVs, and are taking on people now and more with the launch of Primastar in October.'
