Nissan has chosen the CV show in April to give operators an exclusive preview of its new NV400 chassis cab range.
A mid and long wheelbase NV400 chassis cab in both front and rear wheel drive will be launched with two factory built vehicles and a Nissan Good To Go range of conversions. All will be offered by Nissan dealers.
There will be two engine options of 125hp and 150hp and a total of 13 variants to choose from including a single cab and double cab.
The factory-built conversions initially comprise a dropside and tipper which are built on the production line and will be delivered to the operator ready for action.
The Good To Go range will include a box van, Luton and fridge van, plus a combi and minibus option that will be built by UK converters handpicked by Nissan and sold by dealers to operators as a complete vehicle.
Nissan’s factory built and Good to Go approach guarantees that operators receive a quality and fully approved conversion complete with a manufacturer warranty, and takes away the hassles sometimes connected with buying a chassis cab from a manufacturer and then having it converted by an external supplier.
It also intends to work closely with operators who require more bespoke conversions on the NV400 chassis cab range.
“The CV Show is a great platform to launch our new NV400 chassis cab and remind operators that Nissan has one of the widest LCV ranges on offer in the UK,” explained James Douglas, Nissan Motor GB’s corporate sales director.
“With the NV400 semi forward van based chassis cab and the Cabstar truck chassis cab Nissan has two base vehicles that operators can use to build virtually any size or shape of conversion to match their business requirements. We believe this will help further grow our LCV sales in 2012,” he added.
