Nissan NV2500 Concept Makes World Debut - Previews Nissan`s Entry Into U.S. Commercial Vehicle Market

Nissan North America, Inc. (NNA) today unveiled the Nissan NV2500 Concept at a media event at its Nissan Technical Center North America`s (NTCNA) Michigan headquarters. The NV2500 Concept provides an original take on Commercial Vehicle (CV) design, as well as providing a preview of Nissan`s entry into the CV market in North America.

The Nissan NV2500 Concept offers fresh design and fresh thinking - including a 3-Zone interior and flexible utility and storage solutions. Its "wall-less" mobile office/workspace design includes a computer workstation, fold-down conference table, numerous storage compartments, cargo/tool tie-down racks, nearly six feet of interior height and an awning-style side panel that opens to create a standing outside workshop table. All elements of the interior are designed to be multi-functional and highly durable, able to stand up to the rigours of heavy use at a construction site or other real world locations.

In addition, making its North American debut was the Nissan NV200 Concept, another conceptual depiction of a potential future Nissan commercial vehicle product. The NV200 Concept, which was originally shown at the Tokyo Motor Show, represents a fuel-efficient, delivery-type van and mobile office in one. The NV200 Concept is a cab-forward design with a unique sliding cargo "pod" that extends from the rear to reveal an IT workspace and living quarters.

Nissan will enter the CV business in the United States in 2010 with a product lineup that will incorporate three new products being developed by Nissan specifically for the North American market. These products will be built at Nissan`s manufacturing facility in Canton, Miss. Nissan is investing $118 million to expand Canton`s production to manufacture CVs.

The new vehicles will be joined by commercial vehicles from Nissan`s global CV lineup, creating a multi-segment CV lineup up to class 5 gross vehicle weight ratings (GVWR).
