The company was given access to All-New Townstar, and also had Primastar and Interstar on display.
It was the first time all three had featured in a promotion staged by the Western Group.
The Royal Highland Show is a flagship event and is run by the Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland. Held across four days, tens of thousands of people gather at what is undoubtedly a pinnacle event in the UK’s agricultural calendar.
This year was its 200th anniversary and a phenomenal 200,000 visitors attended. More than 1,000 trade exhibitors took part – and more than 300 trophies were presented to competing livestock.
Western and Barnetts Nissan, who operate five dealerships north of the border, were proud to exhibit the full Nissan LCV range for the fifth year!
Andrew Oag, General Manager at Western Nissan Edinburgh West, said: “It was great to finally see the new line-up together.
‘‘We have been waiting to show clients the new Townstar, and with help from Nissan, we were delighted to have it on show. I believe this was the first time the full range has been on display and Highland Show attendees were eager to learn more.”
“The Royal Highland Show is a fantastic event for us year on year and we were very proud to be back for the 200th anniversary.”
Nissan’s new-look LCV portfolio includes Interstar as the manufacturer’s offering in the large van segment while Primastar becomes the medium-size option. The compact van segment is covered by All-New Townstar, with both fully electric and petrol variants available.
All-New Townstar in particular, blew everyone away at the show, with one potential customer commenting:
“It’s great to see Nissan expanding its commercial line-up. We are really excited by Townstar and can certainly see ourselves placing an order when they become available.
‘‘We really like that we have the choice between petrol or full EV and this will be the van to watch out for next year.”
As well as the full LCV range, Western and Barnetts Nissan was also given access to the new Nissan ARIYA, deliveries of which start this summer. A Nissan Qashqai with Mild Hybrid technology was also on show, as was a special-edition Juke Kiiro and an all-electric LEAF.
With such an impressive presence at the Royal Highland Show, Western colleagues were approached by both potential retail and commercial customers and a vast amount of attendees visited the company’s stand to explore the options available.
‘‘We had a great weekend,’’ said Andrew Oag. ‘‘Nissan is a manufacturer that’s going places and exciting times lie ahead.’’
