Nissan's renaissance and growth won't be restricted to passenger cars and trucks-- effective February 1, it's going full-on commercial.

The creation of Nissan's North America Light Commercial Vehicle and Fleet Division is an effort to realize one of the four 'breakthrough areas'-- commercial trucks, pinpointed by 'Executive of the Moment' Carlos Ghosn, Nissan's President and CEO.

As with their full-size Titan pickup, Nissan isn't entering the segment with timidity-- North American ops are slated to run the gamut and include virtually every facet of sales and production, from styling and engineering to production, distribution, sales, financing and service. The company has designs on selling 434,000 light commercial vehicles globally in fiscal 2007, with an attendant 8-percent profit.
