Nissan e-NV200 Electric Van in Final Development

by Stanley Yee on 09.16.2013 02:30

Nissan is finalizing development of the e-NV200, the electric powered urban delivery van. The e-NV200, which takes much of the electric vehicle technology from the Nissan Leaf, will be the second electric vehicle made by Nissan.

Since 2011, Nissan has been working with different commercial fleets to test the e-NV200 in real world conditions.

The van is built on the existing NV200 multipurpose commercial platform. The electric drivetrain, including the lithium-ion battery pack, was adapted from the Nissan Leaf.

“The e-NV200 will offer all the spaciousness, versatility and practicality of a traditional diesel or gas-powered compact van, but with zero C02 or other pollutant emissions at the point of use. What’s more, it will provide an outstanding driving experience to EVs.” said Hideto Murakami, corporate vice president, Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. “e-NV200 represents a bold and innovative addition to out commercial vehicle range, which is already one of the broadest of any manufacturer.”

Nissan is also working on an e-NT400, based on the NT400 light truck. The e-NT400 is still in early production stages, but it will also be built using the lithium-ion battery pack and 80kW electric motor from the Leaf. The e-NT400 will have a range of 87 miles, and have an available quick charger.

The quick charger will restore 80 percent battery power in just an hour.

The e-NV200’s nearly silent electric drivetrain means it can run at any time without causing a noise disturbance. It will also allow access into areas that are planning on prohibiting gasoline or diesel powered vehicles. Most importantly for the environmentally conscious, the e-NV200 is a 100 percent electric vehicle, and creates no C02 emissions.

Nissan sees the e-NV200 as an urban delivery vehicle for entrepreneurs. The e-NV200 would have lower running costs because of the low cost of electricity as compared to gasoline, and would need less upkeep compared to an internal combustion engine. The van has already been well-received by the participating test fleets, who have enjoyed the quiet ride without sacrificing utility.

Development of light commercial EVs started shortly after the Nissan Leaf in 2010. The Leaf, now the most successful EV ever produced, remains the base development platform for future Nissan EVs.

“As well as the e-NV200, Nissan is developing a number of vehicles that adapt a diverse range of EV technologies,” said Murakami. “We want to explore the potential of EV technology in the light commercial market to diversify the value that Nissan’s commercial vehicles provide to businesses.”
