Highlights of the NV 200 include the ability to fit a standard pallet (40×48) in the back, integrated mounting points (no more drilling!), more cargo room than a Ford Transit Connect, and hanging file folder storage. The sole powerplant available at launch will be a 2 liter, 4-cylinder engine. An electic version using “Leaf technology” will be coming out as a concept soon. No pricing announced, but it will be for sale later in 2012.

Taken together with the Titan-based NV, Nissan now joins Ford in offering two tiers of commercial vans in the United States.

The one I mow with is about the same color of rust.

Engine needs rebuilding, but its from 1950 so its allowed to be a little grumpy.

I see quite a few questions regarding Van MPG so I thought I would compile them into one post. Numbers listed are as close as I could find to real world hwy numbers.
Will work from smallest to largest.

Mazda 5- 26
Transit Connect 26-29
Dodge and Chrysler Minivans - 22
Ford Windstar - 21
Chev Astro AWD- 18
Chev Astro 2wd - 20
Mazda MPV 22-25
1983 watercooled vanagon 1.9 , 20 mpg
2.5 Eurovan 22-23 highway
Mazda MPV 22-25
Chev Express V6 - 20
Chev Express V8 1500-18
2005 Express 2500 14-17
2003 E-150 6 cyl, 18.5 mpg
Ford Econoline Diesel - 20
Ford Econoline V10 - 14
2011 Sprinter 2500 Diesel 144" Tall roof = ~22 new/empty
Sportsmobile Ford V10 - 12 to 13
Generic Box van - 8 to 12

I sure I'm missing some like the MPV or a Sportsmobile and the myriad of engine choices in some vans.

Send me a PM and I will update/edit

MPG with astrosafaris all depends on whether it's 2WD or AWD. My 2WD is good for 20mpg pretty consistently.

4 cylinder 4wd

Europeans get all the cool vans.

Weird how the turn signals are on the side of the van instead of built into the mirrors like on mine...
