Article by Anita Panait, on June 9, 2012

Nissan and Red Bull Racing have reached an agreement to extend for the 2012 season a contract to supply Nissan Light Commercial Vehicles and related services in 2012. Nissan will supply a fleet of over 30 vehicles -- including the Nissan NV200 and the Nissan NV400 – to support the transportation needs of Red Bull Racing at their Milton Keynes plant and for all operations throughout the 2012 Formula One season.

According to the Team Principal of Red Bull Racing, Christian Horner, the team needs reliable partners to take care of all their transportation needs, especially within “a highly pressured and challenging environment” like Formula One. The recent agreement between Nissan and Red Bull Racing is a continuation of the partnership between Red Bull Racing Formula One and Infiniti.

Horner remarked that since extensive travel is part and parcel of Formula One, material, staff and guest transportation are an essential part of the company’s operations. He added that Nissan NV200 and NV400 will be vital in supporting the team. James Douglas, corporate sales director, Nissan Motor (GB) Ltd commented that they are looking forward with working as an official supplier for the F1 Red Bull team.

Made from the start as both a passenger and a commercial car, the Nissan NV200 provides a new degree of comfort, space and practicality to the minivan market, internationally and even solely in Europe.

Nissan NV200 will be offered in three different variants: a van with the biggest load space in its family and two seven seat models - the more plush passenger vehicle version, and the useful Combi version for passengers and loads, which will be launched at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show.

Senior Vice President of Global Product Planning, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. Andy Palmer said that the Nissan LCV business is in a stage of making its company bigger even in the most challenging financial situations. They aim to expand their enterprise with smart new releases and services that deliver the needs of their clients, in Europe as well as internationally.

He added that The Nissan NV200 is their bet for an international small van. It provides exemplary use and smart convenience that cuts the cost of ownership, together with a fully functional design. With this car, Nissan targets to deliver the needs of its clients searching for an adaptable, purposeful, light van. They will unveil the Nissan NV200 before summer in Japan, in autumn 2009 in Europe, and next in China and other global markets.

Maximised cargo area

Nissan NV200 uses modern packaging concepts to make the biggest and most practical cargo area in its segment. Though roughly under 4.4m in total length, the van variant of the Nissan NV200 prides itself of having a load bay that is more than 2m long (2040mm).
