The Japanese manufacturer introduced an all-new version of its all-electric NV200 van during the Nissan Futures 3.0 event, which took place in Oslo, Norway.
Known for its versatility and low operating costs, the NV200 (all-electric or gasoline engine) is a popular choice among fleet customers across the globe. This multipurpose van is the second all-electric vehicle commercialized by Nissan (after the Leaf). For 2018, the e-NV200 is equipped with a new 40 kWh battery with an expected autonomy in the 280 km range, 100 km more than the current version. The additional range has zero impact on the available load space and payload, as the battery’s weight and dimensions remain unchanged.
Gareth Dunsmore, Electric Vehicle Director, Nissan Europe, explained: ‘The world is going electric, which means we must rethink just about everything we know about vehicle electrification, driving and transportation. If we want to ensure that the future is sustainable, we must create a fully electric ecosystem that will enable modern life to be cleaner, safer and more connected for everyone.”
The new e-NV200 will be available in Europe at the end of 2017. Nissan Canada has yet to confirm the presence of this electric version on this side of the Atlantic.
