The prices for the Vanette is in between 1,572,900 yen ($16,300) and 1,899,450 yen ($19,700).
Thanks to the adoption of an air-fuel ratio sensor, catalyst improvements and other tweaks, the NV200 Vanette achieves exhaust emissions under the JC08H + JC08C test mode that are 75 percent lower than the levels required by Japan's 2005 exhaust emission regulations. The NV200 Vanette also complies with the specified standards of the designated low-pollution vehicle system adopted by the Eight Prefectures and Cities Low-Emission Vehicle Certification Scheme.
As standard, all models are fitted with rear view monitor, Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Brake Assist and SRS air bag system for the driver and for the front passenger.
In addition to the two-seater version, the NV200 Vanette is also offered in a five-seater version with two rows of seats, and the new seven-seater wagon, which can be used for both commercial and private purposes. The second- and third-row seats in the wagon fold up to create a large cargo space suitable for multipurpose use.
