Nissan Evalia, 7-Seat Electric Van to be Released in Europe

 
Nissan recently unveiled a new 7-seat electric van for the European market at the Paris Auto Show debut (slightly different from the Nissan electric van we published on in May). The Nissan Evalia electric van with its spacious design seating for seven people is being targeted at small business owners and ‘soccer moms’. The 6 kW of onboard energy gives the vehicle a lot of potential for small business owners who need portable power.

“Based on the e-NV200 concept, the newly-named Nissan Evalia Electric van will utilize the same drivetrain as the Nissan Leaf. While the Japanese automaker hasn’t released range numbers, they did say that the fast-charging plug will allow an 80% charge in just 30 minutes. Nissan is also touting that 6 kW of onboard energy that can be tapped by business owners who need a portable source of power.”


 
A new version of the Nissan Leaf’s battery is predicted to debut with the Evalia, improving or at least equaling the range of the Leaf. For small business owners looking to cut back on their fossil fuel use and save some money on gas, the Evalia should make a great around-the-town type of vehicle.

There hasn’t been any notice yet whether or not Nissan will offer the all-electric vehicle for sale in the U.S.; though it seems that it would be a mistake not to — there is certainly a potential market there.
