Nissan e-NV200 (PICS & VIDEOS)

I recently got a chance to check out the Nissan e-NV200 at EVS27 in Barcelona. Below are 5 pics of this electric van, followed by some key information about the vehicle and a couple of videos.

The Nissan e-NV200, which is being manufactured in Barcelona, is being used in a 28-vehicle trial in the UK’s British Gas fleet. It has also been tested out by Fed-Ex in Japan and Singapore, by DHL in Japan, by Coca Cola in Japan, and it is going to be used in a NYC taxi pilot program. Clearly, that’s the type of use Nissan was promoting at EVS27.

This may not be a hot Porsche, Tesla, or BMW, but I think this is a very exciting vehicle. There’s tremendous potential for electric vans such as this one to replace fossil fuel–powered vans in fleets around the world, cutting pollution massively while also saving the companies using them a great deal of money.

The Nissan e-NV200 goes into production this year.

    This vehicle has fantastic potential to significantly reduce auto exhaust emissions in Urban environments (where the air pollution is the worst). Hopefully American CEOs will adopt the technology because it will save their firms money. I make no assertions that American businessmen have any real interest in the Environment, but they do pay attention to their Profit-Loss statement.

    Very exciting. I have a few friends who own small businesses and are actively looking for a small delivery vehicle (Ford Transit, Nissan NV200 etc) and it would be fantastic to have this as an offering. 🙂

    I’m still trying to find out from anybody who has seen it in person: does it have the four-camera “look all around the car” backup cam like the new model year Leaf does? And does it get the same, more or less range than the Leaf per charge?

    • Hmm, i will have to ask someone those questions. Will try to get that info for you. (I think #1 is a yes, but have to confirm. No idea regarding #2.)
