The four versions of the chassis, tipper and dropside turbo engine have been replaced with a single 2.3-litre turbodiesel engine that offers improved fuel economy and sees the NV400's CO2 emissions fall by 8g/km.
Additional specification now included on the E grade panel van as standard includes deadlock, power mirrors, front electric windows, FM audio system with MP3 / iPod compatibility, USB / AUX socket input and Bluetooth connectivity, cargo floor load mounting hooks and immobiliser and alarm.
All panel van, crew van, tipper and dropside conversions now have a Thatcham-approved Category 1 alarm and SE grade panel van, crew van and Crew Bus SE derivatives now have remote control locking with a three-button key, while the Crew Bus also has a standard immobiliser and pre-wiring for alarm.
All rear-wheel drive panel vans, crew vans and chassis now come with twin rear wheels.
Nissan corporate sales director Barry Beeston commented: ‘The improvements to the NV400 will further increase its appeal to businesses both large and small. Its comfort and reliability on long journeys is now matched by the efficiency of a high-performance engine which will deliver tangible cost savings.
‘The extra security features on both the E and the SE models will also provide drivers and fleet operators with extra peace of mind that their vehicles and loads will be safe and secure when left unattended.’
