Nissan to launch Evalia MPV in August

Nissan will launch the all new Evalia MPV globally know as the NV200 in India by August.

Booming sales, a top award for Quality and an innovative new segment-busting family vehicle to be built at Chennai… Nissan is making waves in India. Appearing at the Delhi Auto Expo for the first time, Nissan has chosen this significant event to launch a brand new vehicle, built in India for India.

The Nissan Evalia, an award-winning seven-seater family car, is the first Urban-Class Utility Vehicle. Innovative and exciting, Evalia boasts best in class fuel economy, a truly versatile interior with multi-use functionality and a host of sophisticated features such as Rear View Camera and Intelligent Key.

The Nissan Evalia MPV is a 7-seater model which has been modified for sale in India. The Evalia is being produced in collaboration with Ashok Leyland. The Evalia MPV is powered by a 1.5 DCi motor which also powers the Micra, Sunny, Pulse and the upcoming Duster SUV. The motor will be tuned to produce 100hp and 240 Nm of Torque.

When sales start later in the year, Evalia will add a new dimension to Nissan’s range in India, joining the locally built Micra and Sunny models and the imported X-TRAIL SUV, exciting 370Z sports car and Teana premium sedan. Its arrival marks the start of not only a new segment for the Indian market but also a new phase in Nissan’s presence in the country.

Nissan is also rapidly building its dealer presence in the country. Currently there are 50 outlets established, covering around 70% of the country, but that figure will more than double by the end of next year, with 110 dealers giving 85% market coverage.
