The Toronto International Auto Show got to have a world premiere for the first time, as the Nissan NV2500 Concept made its first public debut in Toronto.
The NV2500 Concept is Nissan’s idea of what a commercial vehicle should be like, and is confident that when it goes into production in fall of 2010, it will appeal to North American buyers.
Upfront is a Cummins diesel V8 engine (petrol V8 will also be offered) mated to a ZF-five speed automatic gearbox.
It will be available in two heights, a regular roof and a high-roof, although only one length has been announced so far.
It’s cargo area is very flexible and can be modified to serve all manner of set-ups. Nissan calls it a “rolling idea lab”.
It will be built at Nissan’s Canton, Missouri facility, where the Titan pick-up is currently being produced.
So if the lease on your Dodge Sprinter expires next year, you’ll have another option to pick from.
