Hanover (ots/PRNewswire) - Nissan announced today that it will
appoint dealers from the Volvo owned dealer network in selected
markets. The Nissan franchise for those dealers will include sales
and after sales activities.
The first phase of dealers will be appointed in Germany. Nissan
does not intend to appoint Volvo dealers in markets like Spain, Italy
and France, where it already enjoys a consolidated dealer network for
the sales and service of its commercial vehicles.
The Nissan line up of vehicles offered to the Volvo network will
include the all-new Cabstar, new Atleon and new Interstar panel van,
all ranging from 2.8 to 15 tons GVW and making their debut at the
Hanover Motor Show today.
The dealers will dedicate separate areas of their premises to the
two makes and the two brands will maintain separate identities.
"With four new products launched by the end of 2006, Nissan is now
ready to increase its sales in Europe, and expanding quickly our
dealer network is a further step toward ensuring success", said
Dominique Correze, Vice President Nissan Europe LCV Business Unit.
"Our new network strategy gives us the opportunity to choose some of
the best dealers in Europe, with great commercial competence and
impeccable service standards", said Correze.
Nissan has identified the light commercial vehicle business as one
of four breakthrough areas for the company under its Nissan Value-Up
three-year business plan, which began in fiscal year 2005. Nissan set
ambitious objectives for the LCV business, which are to double
operating profit to 8% and grow its sales volumes by 40% to 434,000
units worldwide by fiscal year 2007.
