Ashok Leyland will produce Nissan NV200 under own brand


Ashok Leyland will produce Nissan NV200 under own brand

It looks like the Nissan NV200 is quickly “spreading its seeds” around the world. Following the announcement that GM will sell a rebadged NV200 as a 2015 Chevrolet City Express, the Japanese van will also be the basis of a new vehicle for the Indian market called the Ashok Leyland Stile.

Part of the Hinduja Group, Ashok Leyland developed the vehicle together with the Nissan Motor Company in a joint venture. It will be built by Nissan at its Oragadam plant near Chennai, India. Offered as a 7 or 8 seater model, the Stile features a slightly different design than the Nissan NV200 – which is also sold in India as a Nissan Evalia. The van has a different fascia with completely new headlights and grille, while at the rear, there’s an identical third brake indicator and similar taillights. On the inside, the Ashok Leyland Stile boasts a familiar interior. The van is powered by Renault-Nissan’s 1.5-liter diesel engine developing 75 horsepower and 185 Nm (136 lb-ft) of torque. The detuned unit is linked to a five-speed manual gearbox. The Stile will also be offered as a CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) model.
