This contest, which ran from March 27 th through July 1 st, asked entrants to provide modification ideas for a Nissan NV200 Compact Cargo van to make it the perfect vehicle for their business. The entries were judged based on the following criteria with weighting of criteria listed as a percentage in parentheses: creativity (35%), originality (25%), content (25%) and usefulness (15%).

"Vocationally, these custom NV200s run the gamut from pet transportation to custom cake design, demonstrating that no matter what sort of business you run, the NV200 is an ideal partner for you," said Joe Castelli, vice president, Nissan Commercial Vehicles and Fleet. "The NV200's configurability, fuel economy and functionality make it a viable vehicle across the entire spectrum of independent businesses in the US."

The five winners were presented with NV200s, each wrapped to their individual specifications, along with a check for $20,000 to assist in the modification of the vehicles or to help their businesses. This ceremony took place during NISSAN360, a comprehensive, global look at the Nissan Motor Company held for limited VIP attendees. More information on the winners and their companies can be found below.

Core Mechanical LLC  Core Mechanical LLC is a woman-owned, multi-service company that provides repairs and replacement of commercial and industrial HVAC, refrigeration and kitchen equipment in Houston, Texas. The NV200 will allow them to hire an extra technician and increase their business by as much as 30%.

Core Mechanical's NV200 will feature the Nissan Technology Package option (Nissan Connect SM with Navigation System, RearView Monitor and Sirius XM Satellite Radio) along with floor mats and a GPS tracking system.

Sublime Cake Design  Husband and wife team Wiley and Tiffanie Saccheri, along with Tiffanie's mother Jackie New, run a custom cake and cupcake shop, Sublime Cake Design, out of Redding, CA. They currently use a Nissan Murano for their deliveries, which "has all the main features we need to deliver basic orders," but is ill-equipped to handle those that are "bigger, more fragile and complex."

As is the case for many small businesses working with stock or slightly modified vehicles not intended for commercial purposes, Sublime Cake Design recognizes the value that the NV200 will bring to its work: "many of the features we could want (in our custom van) are already in the NV200!"
