Nissan Elgrand Australia

The Nissan Elgrand is a large people mover designed for the Japanese domestic market (JDM). While the Elgrand has never been sold new in Australia, used examples of all three generations have found their way Down Under as one of the most popular grey imports.

The first generation E50 was produced from 1997-2002, the second-generation E51 from 2002-2010 and the third-generation E52 from 2010. It’s been produced with a variety of seating configurations, with a range of four-cylinder and V6 petrol and diesel engines, in either two or all-wheel drive.

  • What is the towing capacity of the 2000 Nissan Elgrand?

    No one seems to be prepared to say what the maximum towing capacity of the Elgrand is; the best we could find is that the tow bar available for the Elgrand is rated at a maximum towing load of 1400 kg. That effectively limits the towing capacity of the vehicle to 1400 kg.

  • Why is Elgrand unavailable in Australia?

    Nissan told us that "like a number of overseas models, Nissan Australia has studied the possibility of introducing the Elgrand people-mover but, at present, local market demand for this model and its overall business case are insufficient to make the Elgrand a full-volume-compliance model in our brand's local vehicle range. It should be noted that the government requirements, processes and overall costs for a small local second-hand car importer to bring some used vehicles from Japan are different to those for an official full-volume vehicle importer like Nissan Australia."

  • Buying a grey import Elgrand

    Buying a grey import is always a gamble. As a car it's decent enough, but I would want to know whom it is I'm dealing with when I'm buying one. I would ask who imported the car, what is its history before it was imported, when it was imported, does the dealer support it with spare parts and servicing.
