Nissan has grafted a van body onto the Leaf for the electric e-NV200 at Detroit.

The Koreans starred, the Japanese mounted a comeback, and One Ford hit the headlines with an extended family of Focus-based newcomers that it is certain to make a big hit in Australia. But it was one car and the commitment of its company chief that made the most impact as America fought back on the opening day of the 2011 North American International Motor Show.

It takes a step beyond the NV200 that will be sold in the US as a small commercial with taxi prospects, and also is likely to go on sale, but probably not until 2014.

The petrol NV200 has previously been announced as New York s Cab of the Future and the electric version has already undergone a trial program with Japan Post and is scheduled for a future one with FedEx in London.

Like the Leaf, the e-NV200 uses a 80kW/280Nm electric motor powered by a 24kWh lithium-ion battery pack mounted under the van floor. A single-speed transmission drives the front wheels, and — again similarly to the Leaf — Nissan claims it would probably get around 160km of range.

While the design strongly follows the NV200 in concentrating on payload space, the electric concept gains the Leaf s charge point hatch on the grille, and adds a bit of tech-esque bling in the form of blue-tinted headlights and taillights.

There s also a geek chic feel to the cabin concept, with a flat instrument display obviously modelled to mimic a tablet. With the current race to stuff ever more novel gadgets into cabins, the tablet display could conceivably survive into the production model. But it s hard to see the same luck for the two-tone blue alloy wheels on the concept.

At last a practical EV. When all of us are driving pure electric cars and the annual 15 billion fuel tax revenue disappears, how will the government tax the EV to recoup their loss? The registration cost is based on the number cylinders in QLD. When I asked the DMT the how the EV rego is assessed they told me that it was the same as a 3 cyl ice car which is $69 cheaper than a 4 cyl vehicle, another revenue loss.

Meanwhile I will continue driving my 3 cyl car. The $69 rego saving buys me enough fuel for 3 months until I win the lotto for an EV.
