Nissan’s Light Commercial Vehicle range rounded off a fantastic year after the manufacturer’s innovative five-year warranty landed a prestigious honour at the What Van? Awards in London today.

The What Van? Editor’s Choice award went to Nissan’s market-leading five-year, or 100,000 mile, Manufacturer Warranty for its range of petrol and diesel trucks and vans.

The warranty, introduced on new vehicles purchased from September 1st 2015, covers a comprehensive array of component and chassis elements, from powertrain and battery through to paintwork, such is the confidence Nissan has in its LCV range.

It wasn’t the only success Nissan enjoyed at the awards today. The all-electric Nissan e-NV200, which costs just two pence per mile to run, was also Highly Commended in the What Van? Green Award.

““Nissan’s decision to push its standard warranty out to an impressive five years or 100,000 miles is a valuable extension that provides real value and confidence for light commercial vehicle operators,” said What Van? Editor Paul Barker. “It’s a move that illustrates the confidence Nissan has in the durability of its products and we’re delighted to highlight this industry-leading package.”

Nissan has one of the widest ranges of LCVs in Europe, including the all-new NP300 Nissan Navara, which recently won the International Pick-up of the Year. The range also includes the NV200 and NV400 vans and NT400 Cabstar truck.

Designed to suit a variety of uses, Nissan’s vans and pick-ups provide cleverly-designed cargo spaces and the latest technological features as options, including rear view camera and NissanConnect Navigation system. The LCVs provide for a wide range of applications, with impressive manoeuvrability, high levels of driver comfort and affordable cost of ownership from versatile and durable chassis and cabs.

Barry Beeston, Corporate Sales Director at Nissan Motor (GB) said: “We are absolutely thrilled to win the Editor’s Choice award. Receiving an honour like this from such a well-respected industry publication is further proof that Nissan sets the benchmark when it comes to innovation in the light commercial sector.”
