Nissan e-NV200 Now Available In Japan, US Release Delayed

The Nissan e-NV200 — the company’s new electric business/delivery van — is now available in Japan, but the US release has been delayed a bit, according to recent reports.

The reason for the delay of the US release is due, reportedly, to the fact that Nissan wants to improve the range by integrating “better” batteries before releasing it to the American market.

That makes sense, but should prove a bit frustrating for those who have been holding their breath since the first announcement of the model. To tide those of you over, here’s a review of the vehicle’s specs (as of right now):

  • The e-NV200 possesses a range of 170km/106 miles on a single charge (based on the New European Driving Cycle, or NEDC).
  • The vehicle can be quick-charged up to 80% battery capacity in just 30 minutes (400 V). A “normal” charge (220 V) to full-capacity takes roughly eight hours.
  • Top speed with a load is roughly 120 km/hour (75 miles an hour).
  • The e-NV200 can reach 100 km/h in just 13 seconds.
  • Running costs work out to roughly 5 cents a mile in the US.
  • The battery pack on deck is a 24kWh lithium-ion one.
  • The electric motor is an AC Synchronous 80kW.
  • The e-NV200 possesses 4.2 meters-squared of cargo space, and 2.04 meters of cargo length. Can fit in the equivalent of two Euro-sized pallets.
  • The vehicle can (safely) carry up to 770kg of cargo.

Certainly not a bad combination of specs and abilities. Given the great success of the Nissan LEAF, it seems likely that the e-NV200 will have no trouble finding its target market. You just have to wait for it now, that’s all.
