2013 Nissan NV200 van

Nissan Canada will introduce its NV200 compact cargo van to the Canadian public at the 2013 Montreal International Auto Show (MIAS) in January.

It will go on sale at 44 Nissan Commercial Vehicle dealerships across Canada, beginning early in 2013.

The Nissan NV200 provides a new entry point for Canadian cargo van and small pickup buyers looking for a compact, efficient alternative to their larger, less fuel-efficient vehicles.

A taxi variant of the NV200 has been chosen as the next official New York City cab.

"There is an increasing need for a ‘right-sized’ van that optimizes cargo space while offering the best possible fuel economy and an affordable price – the exact sweet spots of the innovative new Nissan NV200," said Judy Wheeler, Director of Marketing at Nissan Canada Inc.

"Businesses today, both large and small, are also looking for vehicles that represent their brands in the best light – smart, innovative, and professional. NV200 does that and much more, and we’re delighted to display it for the first time in Canada in one of Nissan’s top Canadian markets – Montreal."

The NV200 is the third commercial vehicle offering from Nissan Canada 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.
