IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Nissan's NV200 is on track to reach a sales milestone of 200,000 cumulative units by the end of the fiscal year.
The award-winning compact van is a key global growth vehicle for Nissan, which is seeking to become the world's leading manufacturer of LCVs by the end of fiscal year 2016 (April 2016-March 2017).
The Nissan NV200 is now sold in more than 40 countries after recent launches in the United States and South Africa. It offers outstanding cargo space and class-leading cost of ownership. Best performance for maneuverability, drivability and load accessibility are matched to attractive design.
