Nissan has introduced the NV350 Urvan CNG, a new version of the commercial vehicle powered by a bi-fuel compressed natural gas (CNG) engine. This is Nissan's third CNG model in Thailand. The van is available for sale throughout Thailand.
Nissan launched its first CNG model, the Navara CNG, in July 2013, followed by the Sylphy CNG.
The new NV350 Urvan CNG is powered by a QR25DE engine, which generates 147 hp at 5,600 rpm with a maximum torque of 213 Nm at 4,400 rpm. Engineered for advanced CNG operations, the vehicle includes new technologies such as an advanced floating gas injection system to maximize the efficiency of gas consumption and an advanced electronic system to effectively control the injection of gas, minimizing noise created through gas injection. The new vehicle will reduce running costs by two thirds compared to a conventional gasoline engine, according to the automaker.
NV350 Urvan CNG has two 100L CNG fuel tanks with protective coverings installed in the bed of the last row seats. Its special receptacle valve is located at the fuel filler area, allowing customers to replenish CNG at their convenience. NV350 Urvan CNG is available in two models: a 12-seater version with automatic transmission and a 16-seater with manual transmission. Both offer a comfortable and spacious interior, with 18 air vents and a MID (multi-information display) function, according to Nissan.
NV350 Urvan CNG is priced from 1.251M baht.
