Nissan plans for LCV growth

Nissan is promising its van dealers six new light commercial vehicles by 2013 plus globally advanced technology to put them on business users' shopping lists.

The Japanese manufacturer aims to become a major global player in the LCV market.

It starts with the reveal of a passenger version of the NV200 van during this month's Hannover Commercial Vehicle Show.

Its display will also feature zero emission battery technology to be used on Nissan's future electric van.

Nissan is also planning the world reveal of an important new range of vehicles which will take the brand into significant new areas of the LCV market.

“Nissan is deadly serious about becoming a major player in the commercial vehicle world. Despite the current economic crisis we are already selling more than 500,000 units globally. But by the middle of the decade we aim to be producing more than 1 million units annually,” said Gilles Normand, corporate vice president, Nissan Motor Co.

Nissan recently announced that its second all-electric vehicle, after the Leaf hatchback, will be a light van.
