After tasting some success with the Leaf all-electric car, Japanese automaker Nissan is upping the ante when it comes to electric vehicles. Case in point is the all-electric version of the Nissan NV200 MPV, a.k.a. the Evalia in the Indian car market. Nissan has green lighted the e-NV200 MPV, which was first showcased early this year at the Detroit Motor Show. The electric variant of the Nissan NV200 will first begin duty on Spanish roads, in Barcelona to be specific, where the MPV will function as a taxi.

The Nissan NV200 powered by the 1.5 liter K9K turbo diesel engine is already doing duty as a taxi on Barcelona streets.

The usage pattern of these diesel powered NV200 taxis in Barcelona will be used to develop the charging infrastructure for the  electric Nissan e-NV200 MPV. Apart from Barcelona, the Nissan NV200 shot into prominence when it was chosen to be New York s next generation taxi, replacing the legendary Crown Victoria yellow cabs. The electricity powered Nissan e-NV200 is expected to feature a synchronous AC electric motor that will generate a power of 107 Bhp with peak torque rated at 280 Nm.

This motor will be juiced up by means of a 48 module lithium ion battery stack.

Given that the e-NV200 is an electric vehicle, the MPV will produce all this torque right from word go, delivering peppy acceleration, which is a boon in city traffic conditions. Given that the e-NV200 will come with a CVT automatic gearbox, the MPV is also expected to be easy to drive around the city, thus reducing the stress experienced cab drivers. Known for its versatility, the spacious Nissan e-NV200 will continue to be offered with the sliding doors that make ingress and egress easier.

The Nissan NV200 is also sold in panel van guise in many parts of the world.

In India, the Nissan NV200 was launched earlier this year, and is called the Evalia MPV. Powered by a 1.5 Liter turbo diesel engine, the Nissan Evalia MPV is priced and positioned between the likes of best selling MPVs like the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and the Toyota Innova. The turbo diesel engine, which is mated to a five speed manual gearbox drives the front wheels of the MPV and produces a peak power of 85 Bhp with a peak torque of 200 Nm. The India-spec Evalia features 7 seats and comes with safety features like ABS and Airbags on the top end models.

The Evalia is yet to take off in the Indian car market as Nissan dealers were not buying new cars given that there were some differences regarding the distribution chain of Nissan in India. Now that this issue seems to be sorted, expect to see more Evalias hitting showrooms, and eventually Indian roads.
