February 16, 2011 ? Bronx, NYC: Teddy Nissan (www.TeddyNissan.com ) is expected to gain market share in the New York City area after being selected by Nissan to represent and retail the 2012 Nissan NV, the Japanese manufacturer?s first full-sized commercial van, as well as the first imported brand of its kind available in the United States.
Scheduled to go on sale this spring, the 2012 Nissan NV was designed to compete against the Ford E series, General Motors' GMC Savana and Chevrolet Express cargo vans. Only a select few Nissan dealerships across the nation were selected to carry the Nissan NV franchise.
Since opening its doors in August 2009, Teddy Nissan has sky rocketed to one of the top Nissan dealerships in the country for revolutionizing the way customers buy and service their vehicles online. The state-of-the-art dealership facility is conveniently located right off of Interstate-95, serving the New York City, New Rochelle, Yonkers and Bronx areas. With this newest innovative addition to its lots, Teddy Nissan remains positioned on a path of rapid growth.
"Being selected by the manufacturer to represent the new Nissan NV is a fantastic opportunity for our dealership and for the consumer", says Steven Risso, President of Teddy Nissan. "From its design to its functionality, there is nothing like this van on the market, and we are proud to represent this commercial vehicle for Nissan".
Starting at $24,590, the NV features a high roofline and more flexible interior space for cargo versus its American counterparts. Buyers can choose among three versions, two engines and two roof configurations. The basic NV1500 comes with a V-6 engine only. The NV2500 HD comes with a V-6 or V-8, and the NV3500 HD has a V-8 only. The NV is produced at the Nissan assembly plant in Canton, Miss., where the Altima, Titan and Armada models are built. To accommodate production of the NV, the Canton plant underwent a $118 million expansion, and can produce 400,000 vehicles per year.
