How much does a Nissan van cost to insure?

Nissan makes a wide range of vans and pickup trucks, with a reputation of offering value for money. Nissan’s double-cab Navara pickup truck, which can be used as a family runabout as well as a commercial vehicle, has proved especially popular. In fact, it’s the Nissan van that people most get insurance quotes for.

On average, annual insurance premiums for the Navara Tekna Double Cab dCi 188 4WD are around £914* while the automatic version will set you back a little more with an average annual premium of £951*.

When it comes to insurance quotes for covering small Nissan vans, you should expect to pay around £830* on average to insure an NV200 SE 89.

For Nissan’s small all-electric vans, you could expect to pay an average insurance premium of £809* for the e-NV2000 Acenta Rapid Plus.

In the mid-sized van category, the Nissan Primastar SE DCI 100 costs £806* to insure, on average. For Nissan’s NV300, which Nissan launched to replace the Primastar in 2016, average van insurance premiums are around £1,005* (that’s for the NV300 Acenta L1H1 dCi 120).

Van cover for the larger NV400 SE L3H2 FWD dCi 125 have an average annual premium of £1,197*.

In general, the more a van is worth, the higher the insurance premium will be. That’s mainly due to the fact that the insurer would need to pay out more if the van was written off in an accident.

However, with van insurance various other factors are at play, which also go to explain why vans are more expensive to cover versus cars. Vans are generally larger and weigh more than cars, so they can potentially cause greater damage to third parties in an accident. They also tend to carry more valuable cargo versus cars, and they can be more expensive to repair because they have larger engines than cars.

While it can be cheaper to insure smaller vans, engine size tends to have a bigger impact on premiums, with the larger engine vans being pricier to cover.

Along with your choice of model, the cost of insuring a Nissan van or pickup truck also depends on your personal circumstances.

For instance, younger van drivers (18-24) tend to pay more for their van cover as insurers view this group as more likely to be in an accident. Insurance premiums could also be higher if you’re based in an area with elevated crime rates.

Nissan Navara

The Nissan Navara is a versatile pickup truck offering practicality, decent capability and value for money. Built to safely carry over a tonne in weight, the Navara is ideal for a range of jobs, but can also be used as family transport – the double-cab version being the most popular.

Nissan first introduced the current Navara model in 2014 and gave it a significant overhaul in 2019, when it scooped the Pick‐Up of the Year accolade at the Great British Fleet Awards 2019.

Double-cab Navaras seat up to five passengers, while the King Cab version is a four-seater with more load bay space instead. Navaras come with a 2.3 dCi diesel engine.

Nissan E-NV200

Sitting in the small van segment, the Nissan E-NV200 is the UK’s bestselling all-electric van, having been significantly improved since it was first introduced in 2014.

The latest E-NV200 has a driving range of 127 to 187 miles and rapid charge capability in 40 to 60 minutes. Nissan says the E-NV200 is ideal for small- and medium-sized businesses as well as fleet buyers looking for low operating costs and high efficiency.

Nissan NV300

First introduced in 2016, the NV300 replaced Nissan’s mid-sized Primastar van, which dates back to 2006. In common with the Primastar, the NV300 is a joint-engineered version of the Renault Trafic.

The latest NV300 comes with a Euro 6 emissions-compliant 2.0 litre diesel engine and offers useful tech such as a colour reversing camera with rear parking sensors, a built-in navigation system and a hands-free system to make and receive calls.

Nissan NV400

The NV400 is the largest van in the Nissan range, and was first released a decade ago. Nissan’s latest NV400 is based on the same platform as the Renault Master, both of which were significantly updated in 2019 with new engines and more tech.

The current NV400 offers a Euro 6 emissions-compliant 2.3 litre dCi turbo-diesel engine, which comes in five different sizes, from 135HP up to 180HP. It is also available as a front-wheel drive and as a rear-wheel drive.

If you’re looking for a bigger van, then the NV400 could be worth considering. It offers a maximum cargo volume of up to 17m³ and lets you carry up to 1620kg in weight.

Nissan van history and facts

Nissan is one of the world’s largest auto manufacturers, offering a wide range of vehicles under the Nissan, INFINITI and Datsun brands.

Headquartered in Yokohama, Japan, Nissan’s roots go all the way back to 1911, when it was established under the name Kwaishinsha Motor Car Works by Masujiro Hashimoto. The company made its first vehicle, the DAT, three years later. Having gone through various name changes, it adopted Nissan Motor Company for the first time in 1934.

Nissan began a worldwide expansion in the 1950s and has grown to become one of the world’s biggest motoring names. As the years went by, Nissan started to establish manufacturing facilities outside Japan and opened a UK factory at Sunderland in 1986.

Nissan entered into a strategic partnership with Renault and Mitsubishi in 1999, with a cross-sharing arrangement. The Renault–Nissan–Mitsubishi Alliance now claims to be the global leader in electric vehicle sales. The alliance sold a total of 10.76 million units in 2018 – that’s one in nine of all cars and light commercial vehicles sold worldwide. The cumulative sales of the group’s electric vehicles had reached 725,000 by 2018.

Nissan’s current commercial van and truck range comprises five models: the ever popular Navara pickup truck, the small, all-electric Nissan E-NV200, the compact NV250, the mid-sized NV300 and the larger NV400. The good news is that Nissan’s vans and trucks come with either a 5-year/ 60,000 or 100,000 miles manufacturer warranty.

What’s next for Nissan vans?

With its strong commitment to electric through the Nissan Leaf car and all-electric Nissan E-NV200 van, there’s undoubtedly plenty more to look forward from Nissan on the electric front.

One of the more recent offerings from Nissan, launched in 2020, is the e-NV200 XL, a taller variant of the E-NV200 van. The e-NV200 XL offers nearly double the amount of load space of a conventional E-NV200, 8.0 cubic metres versus 6.0 cubic metres for Nissan’s standard all-electric van.
