Nissan will provide operators an exclusive preview of its new NV400 chassis cab lineup in April at the CV show. A long and mid wheelbase NV400 chassis cab in both rear-wheel and front-wheel drive will be introduced along with two factory-built automobiles and a Nissan Good To Go range of conversions, which will all be available through Nissan dealers.
Two engine options -- 125hp and 150hp -- are available. There are 13 variants to select from, among which are a double cab and a single cab. Initially, the factory-built conversions have a dropside and tipper manufactured on the production line.
They will be brought to the operator ready for action. On the other hand, the Good To Go range will include a Luton and fridge van, box van, plus a minibus and combi option that will be manufactured by Nissan-selected UK converters and sold by dealers to operators as a complete automobile.
The approach of Nissan on Good to Go and factory-built units guarantees that operators will get a fully approved and quality conversion, which comes with manufacturer warranty.
This also removes the hassle sometimes associated with purchasing a chassis cab from a manufacturer, and then having an external supplier to convert it. In addition, the automaker intends to work closely with operators requiring more customized conversions on the NV400 chassis cab range.
Nissan Motor GB's corporate sales director James Douglas commented that the CV Show is a "great platform" to introduce the new NV400 chassis cab and to remind operators that the automaker has "one of the widest" LCV ranges on offer in the United Kingdom.
He further stated that with the Cabstar truck chassis cab and the NV400 semi forward van based chassis cab, the company has two base automobiles that operators can utilize to assemble "virtually" any shape or size of conversion to complement their business requirements. Moreover, Douglas believes that this will aid in the growth of their LCV sales in 2012.
