The NJ2045 is a troop/cargo van mainly for road travelling, while the NJ2046 is the high-mobility light truck enhanced with cross-country travelling features.

The Nanjing NJ2045/2046 provides a lightweight tactical 4X4 carrier for troops, cargo, shelter, and weapon systems. Developed from the Iveco’s civilian minibus van, the NJ2046 has a limited cross-country capability. As well as serving as a standard passenger carrier, the vehicle can also be modified to serve as command & control vehicle, ambulance, light truck, and shelter. The vehicle is available in standard wheelbase and long wheelbase versions.

The NJ-2046 shares same chassis as the NJ2045, but with special features such as higher ground clearance and enhanced body for off-road travelling. The vehicle is in service with the PLA as utility truck, medical evacuation, border patrol vehicle, paratrooper carrier, and anti-tank missile carrier. The vehicle is air transportable and can be air dropped with multiple parachutes. The first airdrop test of the vehicle was conducted on 8 April 2002. The vehicle was dropped by a transport plane at 800m altitude and landed safely under five parachutes.

Nanjing Iveco began to develop the 4X4 military version of its minibus van in 1997 to meet the PLA’s growing demand for such a vehicle. The development of the NJ2045 lasted for five years before the batch production began. The development of NJ2046 began in 1999 and was finalised in late 2000. A May 2003 report noted Nanjing Iveco’s intention to increase production to 30,000 units annually over the following two years, especially to meet a growing need for “special vehicles” -- fire engines, ambulances and military trucks.
南京Iveco在1997年开始发展4X4军用型，被当做小型公共汽车去符合PLA对一种类似车辆的增加需求。NJ2045 的发展在开始批量生产之前持续达五年之久。NJ2046 的发展在1999年开始和在2000后期结束。2003年5月报道称南京Iveco的意图在两年后去增加生产每年达到30,000辆，尤其符合对专用车辆的增长需求--消防车、救护车和军用卡车。
Both NJ2045 and NJ2046 are powered by a 2,798 litre, water-cooled, straight-four, turbo-charged diesel engine, developing 87kW at 3,600 rpm. The vehicle has a manual gear box with 5 forward and 1 reverse gear.
