The NV200, which has an estimated 1,500-pound payload capacity, will be priced “substantially less” than competitive vans, says Joe Castelli, vice president for Nissan Commercial Vehicle and Fleet. While the NV200 is new to the North American market, Castelli noted the van is sold in more than 40 countries.
Nissan designed the NV200 with an overall length of just 186.2 inches sitting on a 115.2 inch wheelbase. The cargo dimension between the wheelhouses allows for loading standard 40-by-48-inch pallets. Standard integrated mounting points allow the installation of racks and shelves without drilling into the sidewalls. Six available floor-mounted cargo hooks allow for secure cargo securement in transit.
