European-spec Nissan NV200 vans will begin production at Nissan's plant in Barcelona, Spain, starting later this year. The Barcelona plant houses two production lines and also builds the Pathfinder SUV, Navara pickup truck, and the Primastar van, which is also built as the Traffic for Renault.

On top of being built in Barcelona, the NV200 will see production in several plants around the world. With a Spring 2009 launch period in its home Japanese market, the NV200 will officially launch in the second half of 2009 in Europe, followed by launches in China and a number of other global markets.

In order to meet production requirements for the NV200, the Barcelona plant will retool in order to be able to sustain capacity utilization while maintaining flexibility during production.
