Nissan has announced that its new NP300 Navara is ready to launch from the Barcelona plant, where it has been made.
The Japanese brand's latest pick-up will come with an all-new 5-year Nissan Light Commercial Vehicle warranty and has been fine-tuned for European drivers. It boasts a 2.3 litre dCi engine, adapted noise and vibration, steering, suspension and brakes for European customers.
The Barcelona team has contributed to the design of the vehicle with steering knuckles, brake discs and drums manufactured at the company's Cantabria plant.
Chairman of Nissan Europe, Paul Willcox, visited the plant and led a traditional Japanese Daruma ceremony to mark an 80 million Euro investment for the NP300 Navara.
He commented: "With 80 years of pick-up heritage, this new NP300 Navara arrives with the off-road ability, durability and loading capacity you would expect from the name. What makes the fully-updated Navara truly unique is the driving experience, style and comfort that it inherits from of the Nissan crossover range, like Qashqai, Juke and X-Trail.
"With the expertise of our team in Spain, a totally renewed production line in Barcelona, and our new five-year Nissan Light Commercial Vehicle warranty, Navara is further evidence that Nissan quality has never been better."
