Everyone has heard about the incredible Nissan LEAF fully electric passenger vehicle. The incredibly efficient, zero-emissions hatchback has changed the way drivers think about electric-powered cars and has opened the doors for other mass-produced alternative fuel vehicles. Well now, the EV segment is about to get another addition. Produced in Barcelona and set for export globally, the new Nissan e-NV200 modifies the existing NV200 cargo van with an all-electric drivetrain.
This 100% electric light- to mid-duty cargo van has been designed for maximum efficiency and interior space. With the addition of this new zero-emissions setup, the e-NV200 will be perfect for commercial deliveries within city limits or even for taxi-vehicles. In the stop and go traffic of heavily congested cities, EVs have the distinct advantage of using no fuel when stopped. During the time that would be spend idling and wasting fuel , electric vehicles just shut off their main power and rely on the smaller battery to power the accessories (radio, headlights, wipers, etc…)
“This is a great landmark day for Nissan, starting production of our second electric vehicle. This is at a time when EVs are now recognized as mainstream technology. Many competitors are only just starting to launch their first EV – where Nissan has clear first mover advantage. We’re proud that the Nissan LEAF is the world’s best-selling electric vehicle with more than 110,000 delighted customers enjoying the quiet and smooth ride of an EV.” Said Andy Palmer, Chief Planning Officer at Nissan Motor Co. Ltd.
