Commercial vehicle specialists ‘What Van?’ have voted Nissans New NV200 Light Commercial Vehicle, van of the year 2010. The NV200 panel van has been targeted at the Hi-Cube panel van sector of the market, directly competing with the VW Caddy in terms of external size but with an internal size comparable to that of the Maxi version of the popular German van.
The Jury was particularly impressed by the fact that Nissan have created a compact light commercial vehicle that sets a new standard in terms of internal space in relation to the van’s external dimensions. The NV200 has also been praised for its versatility, fuel efficiency and value for money and has been received well since its launch in November 2009. The NV200 is at the forefront of Nissan’s plan to rejuvenate its light commercial vehicle range completely and move away from having its van catalogue dominated by re-badged Renaults. Next up will be a mid-sized vehicle to take on the Renault Trafic and Vauxhall Vivaro.
The platform for the NV200 is based on the tried and tested Micra car. It is 4,400mm long, 1,690mm wide and 1,860mm high. It has an internal load length of 2,044mm and can take two euro pallets. The top payload is 783kg and the NV200 grosses at 2,000kg. It can tow a braked trailer grossing at 1,100kg and an unbraked trailer grossing at 640kg.
ABS and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution come as standard on all models along with Brake Assist. The SE model has been designed for the driver who is looking for a little more comfort and refinement. It comes with electric windows, electric mirrors, remote central locking and a full steel bulk head.
