SMALL businesses and tradesmen running Nissan vans and light trucks can benefit from a new free servicing and extended warranty cover package for the company’s LCV line-up.
The range of added-value aftersales and finance offers applies to NV200, Primastar, NV400 and Cabstar models and will help drive down operating costs for small business users until the end of December 2012.
A 72,000-mile free servicing package is now included on NV200 and the 3.0-litre diesel Cabstar, while there’s a 75,000-mile package for NV400, Primastar and the 2.5-litre Cabstar.
And the standard warranty on every light commercial has been extended to four years and 100,000 miles. Both offers combined are worth more than £1,000 in savings to small business users, says Nissan.
In addition, Nissan has also introduced a ‘highly competitive’ range of van contract hire rates to help operators reduce running costs. A Nissan NV200 1.5dCi SE costs £155 per month plus VAT.
The NV200 offers 4.2cu m of loadspace, has a 2.8m-long load area and is powered by a 89hp engine capable of 55.4mpg. Contract hire offers are also available on the crew van.
The NV400 SE 2.3-litre 125hp diesel is now available for £255 per month plus VAT. Two further engines, the 100hp and 150hp, can be specified on the NV400 and the van is available with a variety of wheelbase lengths, roof heights, front- or rear-wheel drive and chassis cab variants.
The Primastar starts at £202 per month plus VAT for the 2.0-litre 115hp diesel van. Offers are also available on the crew van and minibus versions.
All business van and light truck contract hire rates are based on a 10,000-mile annual non-maintenance agreement with a 12-month rental deposit followed by 35 payments.
Andy Connell, Nissan category manager – LCVs, told Business Vans: “Nissan has one of the most comprehensive LCV ranges in the UK and with this range of finance, servicing and warranty offers, we have made them even better value.”
