Nissan e-NV200 (PICS & VIDEOS)
January 21st, 2014 by Zachary Shahan
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.
