Nissan Electric Van Now Offers 7 Seats

Originally published on EV Obsession.

When word came out that Nissan would be bringing an electric version of its NV200 to market, the question many had was whether or not there’d be a 7-set version of the van. When the e-NV200 hit the market, though, there was no such option. That has changed, with Nissan unveiling a 7-seat version of the e-NV200 at the Geneva Motor Show this week.

So, whether you want to transport a bit of cargo on clean electricity or move up to 6 people around in quiet ease, you can now do so with the e-NV200.

“Thanks to growing requests from companies and fleets alike, Nissan has announced it is bringing forward the introduction of the latest iteration in its electric vehicle line-up,” Nissan announced.

“Since its inception, a seven seat version of the revolutionary van has always been part of Nissan’s plans, fulfilling an unmet need for an electric vehicle that can move a larger number of people. From taxi fleets to shuttle services and even to large families, the seven seat e-NV200 Evalia offers a zero-emission solution. For those with a more regular need to move cargo and an occasional need for seven seats, the Combi version of the e-NV200 can also be specified with the larger seating capacity.”

In case you were wondering, 7-seat the e-NV200 is set up with 2 seats in the front, 3 in the middle, and 2 in the back. Both the middle and back seats can be folded if you want 7 seats but also need to transport a lot of cargo at times. In such cases, the 2nd row rolls forward and the 3rd row folds to the sides.

“We have always planned to offer a higher-seating capacity version of the Nissan e-NV200,” said Nissan Europe’s director of electric vehicles, Jean-Pierre Diernaz. “Marketplace demand has meant we have moved this introduction forward by several months to satisfy this need. Nissan has had requests from taxi companies, VIP transfer services, hotels and private motorists who are interested in buying this uniquely flexible and capable vehicle.”

Here are some more stats about the van from Nissan:

  • When seats are down: “2.94 cubic metres of cargo capacity, which is enough to transport three bicycles with the wheels in place, unique in this class.”
  • “With all three rows in place, the luggage capacity is 443 litres under the tonneau cover, and up to an impressive 870 litres when measured to the roof line.”
  • Rear air conditioning.
  • “Available with the CHAdeMO quick charging system, which gives the access to the most widely installed rapid charging system in Europe today with over 1,500 accessible points.”
