-2013 Nissan NV200 makes Canadian premiere at the Montreal International 
Auto Show - 
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Jan. 17, 2013 /CNW/ - Today, Nissan presented for the first 
time in Canada, the all-new Nissan NV200 compact cargo van at the 2013 
Montreal International Auto Show (MIAS). The third addition to Nissan's 
commercial vehicle lineup in Canada boasts several segment-leading features 
including: best-in-class fuel economy of 8.7 L/100 km city, 7.1 L/100 km 
highway, best-in-class turning radius for manoeuvering in tight city spaces, 
and other accommodating features such as Tire Pressure Monitoring System, low 
clearance height for easy indoor parking, and a conveniently low loading 
height. 
The NV200 is the third commercial vehicle offering from Nissan following the 
full-size Nissan NV Cargo, introduced in Canada in March 2011, and the 
full-size Nissan NV Passenger Van which launched in April 2012. Like its 
cohorts, the NV200 offers some of the best examples of innovation in its 
segment - drawing on Nissan's 75-year experience with commercial vehicles. The 
Nissan NV200 provides a new entry point for current cargo van and small pickup 
buyers looking for a compact, efficient alternative to their larger, less 
fuel-efficient vehicles. 
"This is a very exciting time for Nissan as we are in the midst of our 
strongest product offensive to date with five new models in 15 months." said 
Christian Meunier, President, Nissan Canada Inc. "The NV200 provides small 
business owners with what they need most: thoughtful technology, best-in-class 
fuel economy, comfort, manoeuvrability and functional design at an affordable 
price. We look forward to announcing pricing in February and welcoming it to 
our 44 certified NV dealers across Canada this spring." 
While new to North America, the Nissan NV200 compact van is already in use in 
more than 40 countries around the world, receiving acclaim from both users and 
media alike for its optimal functionality and smart design. Having won the 
2010 International Van of the Year award in Europe, and the 2010 Commercial 
Delivery Van (CDV) of the Year in China, NV200 has also established a presence 
as the strong segment leader in Japan with a wide-ranging lineup. NV200 was 
chosen as the exclusive New York City 'Taxi of Tomorrow' and is the latest 
example of Nissan's exciting global vision for the private hire industry.
