It is based on Nissan’s already popular NV200 commercial vehicle and minivan variant, has the drivetrain and battery pack from the Nissan LEAF electric car, and will be the first mass-produced commercial vehicle on the market with CHAdeMO DC quick charging capability.
And in two days’ time, we’ll be driving the production version of the e-NV200 at its official press launch event in Barcelona, Spain.
From a distance the e-NV200 looks like its dinosaur-burning sibling, but get closer and you’ll quickly notice the same nose-mounted charging port door found on Nissan’s best-selling LEAF electric hatch. Offered as both a two-seat commercial van, five-seat minivan and five-seat crew cab commercial vehicle, the e-NV200 is poised to make a big impact, offering low-cost transportation solutions for everyone from the busy soccer parent through to small business owners, large fleets and minicab companies.
Starting at £16,563 before tax but including governmental incentives for the base-model e-NV200 Acenta van as an outright purchase up to £26,309 after tax and government incentives for the e-NV200 Tekna Rapid Plus Combi, the e-NV200 will be offered in a variety of configurations to cater to many tastes.
We know the e-NV200 is powered by the same 24 kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack and 80 kilowatt motor found in the Nissan LEAF and we know the basic pricing information. But we want to know what else you’d like us to find out on its official launch as we snatch a few quick hours behind the wheel?
Perhaps you’d like to know how practical the van is to drive down busy city streets, or perhaps you’re like to know what the fit, finish and trim is like in the family-friendly 5-seat minivan variant?
