Nissan is continuing to pioneer the electric vehicle sector with the introduction of the New Nissan e-NV200, which brings unprecedented refinement, with zero emissions and ultra-low running costs to the compact van segment. Nissan is the first manufacturer to have two all-electric vehicles in its global line-up, joining the Nissan LEAF, the world's best-selling E V.
Differences between e-NV200 and NV200 include striking visual changes, a re-engineered chassis, interior revisions, a new battery pack, a higher capacity regenerative braking system and other modifications. The e-NV200 is available as a spacious work van or as a five-seat people carrier 'Combi van' to ensure e-NV200 is better suited to its role as a city-based delivery vehicle for both cargo and people.
Although based on existing hardware, e-NV200 has undergone a full engineering development programme as if it were new from the ground up. The drivetrain has been re-engineered in a number of significant areas to suit its new role, while changes have been made to the vehicle shell to ensure there has been no compromise to e-NV200's cargo space.
In addition to the optional rear parking camera, other car like items of standard or optional equipment include features such as Nissan's Intelligent Key, power windows and ESP. Safety equipment includes anti-lock brakes with brake assist and electronic brake force distribution (EBD) as standard. Driver and passenger airbags are also standard with side bags available as an option.
The battery can be recharged overnight using a domestic 16-amp single-phase 3.3 kW supply which reduces to four hours if a 6.6kW/32-amp supply is used. A dedicated CHAdeMO DC 50 kW quick charger can recharge the battery from 0-80 percent in just 40 minutes or less if the battery is already partially charged.
The e-NV200 Van has all the space and versatility that you could need in a business vehicle. The rear storage space has multiple anchor points to store a multitude of different items safely and conveniently.
The LCV version still has a cargo volume of 4.2m³ and can carry two standard Euro pallets, while sliding side doors on both sides and wide opening rear doors ensure that loading and unloading is as easy as possible.
