Nissan Launches The All New Vanette, NV200 From Just RM62,000
Tan Chong Motor Sdn Bhd (ETCM) has just introduced two new additions to its light commercial vehicle line-up in the shape of the all-new Nissan NV200 Vanette and Navara Single Cab 4×2. After years of selling the legendary C22 Vanette without much changes over its lifetime, this new NV200 is set to break sales records.
Designed to revolutionize the traditional concept of light commercial vehicles, the NV200’s distinctive styling, high level of safety features, advanced functionality and superior fuel efficiency are class-leading, further complemented by a huge cargo space (measuring 4.2m³) which is able to cater to various applications. Powering the NV200 Vanette is the responsive 1.6-liter HR16DE engine with Continuously Variable-valve Timing Control (CVTC) producing 109ps and 152Nm of torque, it is mated to a smooth-shifting 5-speed manual transmission and the result of this pairing is a best-in-class fuel economy of 14.0 km/liter.
The NV200 sets new benchmarks in terms of driving comfort; the front-mounted engine ensures minimal noise intrusion, thus also avoiding the conventional “hot front seats” and lowering driver fatigue. Besides the superior view out and electric power steering, it is aided with a unique Multi-Function Meter that displays key information such as engine revs, fuel consumption, range and driving time on its large 2.8” Dot Matrix Display. The Multi-Function Meter is also equipped with many useful alerts such as speeding, maintenance schedule, timer and even a transmission shift-up alert so that the driver changes gear at optimal engine speeds.
Also to note is the innovative single-leaf spring rear suspension system which not only offers a payload of up to 740kg, but due to its compact, space-saving design, the cargo space is optimized to accommodate up to two Euro pallets. Like all Nissan vehicles, safety is likewise a priority for the NV200 Vanette. Standard safety features include Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist, Zone Body construction, SRS Air Bag (for driver), pre-tensioners seat belts with load limiters, high mount stop lamp, wide rear view mirror and large side mirrors. The selling prices for the all-new Nissan NV200 Vanette start from RM62,047.93 excluding road tax, insurance and registration related charges. Prices are valid in Peninsular Malaysia and subject to change without prior notice. It comes with a 3-year or 100,000km warranty whichever comes first. Terms and conditions apply. It can be viewed at selected Nissan showrooms nationwide from 18th February 2012 onwards.
