NISSAN, has announced engine, chassis and technical upgrades for the NV400 van at the recent Hannover show.
Introduced to great acclaim in 2011, the NV400 has proven to be a front-runner in the heavy van and chassis cab segment of the market – thanks to its versatility, the wide choice of models and the strength and standing of the Nissan dealer network.
The 2015 NV400 builds on this reputation to create a formidable range of highly efficient vehicles perfectly in tune with today’s demands for a practical working van with a low cost of ownership.
Some the most significant changes can be found underneath the familiar body, where the range of dCi engines has grown to five, offering more performance and greater refinement. But despite the power increases, fuel economy is actually better than before.
All have a common base – a state-of-the art 2.3-litre common rail/direct injection, four-cylinder, 16-valve turbo diesel developed by Alliance partner Renault.
A pair of single turbo units produce 110hp/285Nm (previously 100hp) and 125hp/310Nm and these are joined by a pair of newly developed Twin Turbo units, developing 135hp/340Nm and 165hp/360Nm. Also available is a 150hp/350Nm version of the engine that has a variable geometry single turbo and is available only with a robotised semi-automatic gearbox.
