Nissan Primastar (2002–2015)

Model History

October 2006
Nissan Primastar launched

Nissan's Primastar range was given a fresh look, even more convenience features, and most significantly a range of engines that not only enhance driveability, but are Euro 4 compliant too.

Customers still have a choice of diesel power in three outputs, but in place of the 82PS and 100PS 1.9 dCi engines comes a new 2.0 litre dCi turbocharged common rail unit developed with Renault and offered in either 90PS or 115PS outputs at the same 3500 rpm. Most notable are the improved torque characteristics, rising from 190Nm and 240Nm to 240Nm and 290Nm, respectively. What's more, peak torque arrives at 1600 rpm, rather than 2000 rpm, to give more low speed lugging ability where it's needed most.

December 2007
Nissan launches Good-To-Go range

For the Primastar this means new chiller and freezer versions with Carrier products – either Viento 200, 300 and 350 units or the Xarious range featuring a power standby for added convenience. All refrigerated models of course meet ATP category C (for frozen operation down to -20°C and requiring a minimum thermal efficiency (K factor) of less than 0.4W/m2/°C).
