Nissan’s breakthrough e-NV200 100% electric van combines the features of the award-winning Nissan NV200 van with the market-leading New Nissan LEAF, offering businesses a zero-emission vehicle packed with innovative technology and functionality. From spring 2018, Nissan will introduce in Europe its new zero-emissions van that goes further than ever on a single charge thanks to a new 40kWh battery. The Nissan e-NV200 now offers a 60% extended range with unchanged cargo capacity and single-shift transmission that makes driving easier and safer.
As well as helping business customers enhance their green credentials, the van represents a key pillar in Nissan’s wider commitment to cutting the level of emissions in city centres caused by professional drivers making deliveries and/or collections, ranging from CO2 emissions to noise pollution. It can help make 100% electric last mile deliveries achievable for businesses and professional drivers everywhere, with customers now able to drive more than 100 km further on a single charge compared to the previous generation e-NV200 fitted with 24kWh battery.
Gareth Dunsmore, Director, Electric Vehicle, Nissan Europe, commented:
“Businesses have a huge impact on air quality and traffic congestion, especially in city centres, and the Nissan e-NV200 helps cut the level of CO2 emissions they create. As the world’s leading electric vehicle manufacturer, Nissan is committed in helping businesses and consumers create a more sustainable future and the e-NV200 is playing a key part in this.”
The new 40kWh battery for the 100% electric e-NV200 has extended the driving range up to 174 miles NEDC* and to reflect real life situations more accurately, the upgraded Nissan e-NV200 underwent WLTP* tests, allowing customers to drive from 125 miles on combined driving cycle, up to 188 miles in city conditions on a single charge. This represents an increase of more than 60% compared to previous generation and allows drivers to drive for longer, connected by the extended European CHAdeMO Quick Charging network. Using the same battery technology as the new Nissan LEAF just introduced in Europe, and with no increase in the size of the battery itself, e-NV200 customers face no compromise in load space. Crucially, it can help make 100% electric last miles delivery achievable for businesses and professional drivers everywhere.
The Nissan e-NV200 offers near-silent motoring meaning there are no vibrations, no mechanical noises and no gear changes. EV powertrain with instant torque and smooth acceleration ensures stress-free journeys for drivers and disturbance-free deliveries and collections for residents. Single-shift transmission and Hill Start Assist make driving easier and safer.
The Nissan e-NV200 is also much more than just a 100% electric vehicle. It is a mobile power unit complete with unique bi-directional charging. This means it can give back energy to power the world around it by connecting to offices or business facilities. It can even return any excess charge to top up and stabilise the local energy grid thanks to Nissan’s innovative Vehicle to Grid technology.
Businesses 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. The e-NV200 electric van is easy to load with a cargo floor just 52cm from the ground.
The Nissan 100% electric e-NV200 van has 4.2m³ of load space, enough to hold two Euro pallets or cargo weighing up to 701kg. With wide-opening rear doors and a pair of sliding side panel doors, loading is swift and easy. The front passenger seat can also fold down when required to create a desk, while handy storage spaces are plentiful and within easy reach of the driver’s seat.
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. It is currently the only 100% electric seven-seater van available in Europe. The Nissan e-NV200 Evalia is the perfect solution for taxi and chauffeur businesses for instance.
Depending on the model, the Nissan e-NV200 comes with numerous useful high-tech features, such as a colour reversing camera for easy low-speed manoeuvring, Bluetooth connectivity, Intelligent Key and a fully integrated navigation system. This navigation system has been enhanced compared to previous generation, giving e-NV200 drivers a better user experience with improved overall look and feel.
The NissanConnect EV app helps drivers to make the best usage out of their Nissan e-NV200 to better organise their day and trips. Controlled from smartphone, tablet or computer, it allows owners to intuitively track and log driver reports digitally. They can check information on the battery charge level, start the battery charging and set the vehicle’s climate control remotely (via the app or You+Nissan web portal). All the information customers need – including charge status and energy use – is also clearly displayed on the instrument panel inside the van.
