This network will provide customers with a full range of professional services including special leasing and finance plans, corporate sales programs, road assistance plans and a wide variety of body conversions.

“The start of Nissan LCV sales in Russia is a significant event for our company”, said Andy Palmer, Corporate Vice President, Nissan Motor Co.
