Built for global markets in Nissan’s Barcelona plant, the upgraded Nissan e-NV200 is now being shipped to customers, with demand at record levels for the 100% electric van.
Deliveries to customers have now begun, with more than 4,600 orders taken since sales began in January. This reflects the record demand Nissan is also experiencing for the new Nissan LEAF.
The new generation e-NV200 will further support efforts to cut the level of emissions in city centers by making 100% electric last mile deliveries achievable for businesses and professional drivers everywhere.
Customers can choose from two body options – the e-NV200 van and e-NV200 Evalia. Both have a versatile interior that allows users to configure racks, bins and seating to suit their needs. With 4.2m³ of load space, there is enough room to hold two Euro pallets, or cargo weighing up to 742kg.
For customers looking to move passengers or crew, the e-NV200 Evalia makes an ideal people carrier. With its ingenious modular seating there is still plenty of room for luggage or tools, and as the only 100% electric seven-seater van available in Europe, it presents the perfect solution for taxi and chauffeur businesses.
“Zero emission mobility is the future for urban logistics, as well as turning the last mile of delivery into a clean and efficient means of transport,” says Gareth Dunsmore, Electric Vehicle director, Nissan Europe. “The e-NV200 and its significantly increased range will play a key role in achieving this.”
The Nissan e-NV200 features a new 40 kilowatt-hour battery, which gives the vehicle a range of 300 kilometers (186 miles) under Japan’s JC08 standard. This represents an increase of more than 60% compared to the previous generation, with longer journeys supported further by the extended European CHAdeMO Quick Charging network.
Longer range allows the driver to travel farther on a single charge and also reduces the frequency of charging. It combines excellent load capacity and a driver-friendly cabin with brisk acceleration and a superior quietness that only a pure electric vehicle can offer.
The new e-NV200 can also operate as a mobile power storage unit. The vehicle’s Power Plug, a 100-volt outlet, can provide electricity for tools and equipment. With the optional EV Power Station installed, the Nissan e-NV200 can even supply electricity to offices and shops and serve as a backup power source during blackouts and emergencies. Thanks to the new 40kWh battery, 1000 watts of power from the Power Plug can be accessed for up to 15 hours, up from eight hours in the current model.
Thanks to enhanced battery capacity and durability, the Nissan e-NV200 offers a longer battery life. The battery’s warranty has been extended to eight years and 160,000 km (100,000 miles), up from five years and 100,000 km (62,000 miles) previously.
The Nissan e-NV200’s standard-equipment normal charger now has a capacity of 6 kW, up from 3 kW. By adding a wall-mounted 6kW normal-charging system, the 40kWh battery can be fully charged in about eight hours – roughly the same as the previous standard charger – at places such as a customer’s office or shop.
