Sneak Peak: Nissan’s All-Electric Minivan Spotted In The

For the past two years, Nissan has quietly testing the eNV200an version of its NV200 minivandeployed in numbers in corporate fleets in New York, and Asia. Based on NV200 minivan, which has sold all around the world in a of markets for a number of years, the is not powered by a gasoline enginebut by the motor, controller and battery found in a production Nissan .

I was lucky enough to come yesterday with one of the electric when I called into my Nissan dealership to get my LEAF for minor remedial paint before winter. Just away from the eNV200’s launch in Europe, this 2011 prototypewhich has been on for the past two years to various fleets in the UK including FedEX and Gasgives a tantalizing glimpse what the finished production will be like.

Nissan has that the NV200 was designed the beginning to be powered by a variety of including diesel, petrol, and That’s probably one reason why the appears so finished in its appearance, being one of only a handful of eNV200 vehicles worldwide.

As with the LEAF electric the eNV200’s battery pack is in the middle of the vehicle, under the bay floor. There’s minimal into the cargo area, it’s worth noting the bay floor is slightly higherabout two higherthan the gasoline and diesel-powered variants, resulting in marginally cargo volume.

There is a black, humped behind the cab bulkhead, which houses the NV200’s on-board 3.3 Since this prototype was using first-generation LEAF Nissan has since integrated the charger into the power-electronics under the hoodit’s logical to this hump will be in a production version of the eNV200. For charging, a CHAdeMO port in provides the same direct-to 50-kW charging as the LEAF a compatible Quick Charge

Like most prototypes, were off the menu, but I was given a glance inside the cabin, was a cross between the interior of a NV200 and a first generation LEAF. Like the hatchback shares much of its technology, the has the same telematics center the same wheel-mounted controls, and gear lever.

I was told by staff that it drives and very much like the LEAF, and not much at all like a minivandespite the obvious size and the use of smaller, narrower heavy-duty than the all-electric hatchback.

While the European-version of the eNV200 likely arrive some next year for fleet there’s no news yet on a North versionor if it will even to the U.S at all. However, with of Nissan’s Taxi of Tomorrowa taxicab variant of the NV200 will become New York’s of choice in 2015now underway in an all-electric eNV200 for the U.S. be closer than we think.
