The Nissan e-NV200 promises emission-free running thanks to its advanced 100% electric motor. Available as a commercial vehicle or a seven-seater MPV, the e-NV200 takes on a great role in reducing emissions and lowering operating costs for all kinds of buyers.
In creating its first pure electric LCV, Nissan has significantly re-engineered and re-styled NV200 for its new role. And although it does use a number of key elements from LEAF and NV200, some 30 percent of its components are unique to e-NV200. There are styling changes, a re-engineered chassis, interior revision, a new battery pack and a higher capacity regenerative braking system.
The result is a range of zero-emission vehicles that are capable of making a significant contribution not only to future mobility but also to the business model of any company using small vans, people movers or taxis. For as well as being an exciting vehicle to drive, e-NV200 will be cost effective to run and, just as importantly, its sustainability will reflect positively on any operator’s business decision.
The LCV version has a cargo volume of 4.2m3 and can carry two standard Euro pallets, while sliding side doors on both sides and wide opening rear doors – a top hinged single rear door is also available – ensure that loading and unloading is as easy as possible. In passenger form, it is available as a five or seven seater MPV.
Running costs are the number one priority for most fleet operators and the e-NV200 has been developed to help the business equation. Planned maintenance costs are 40 percent lower and without engine oil, belts, gearbox or clutch there are fewer parts to be checked or replaced. Fuel costs are also significantly lower, with diesel costing three or four times as much as electricity for 65 miles of driving.
The battery can be recharged overnight in 8 hours using a domestic 16-amp single-phase 3.3 kW charger – perfect if e-NV200 is not operating around the clock – but this time reduces to just four hours if the optional 6.6kW/32-amp charger is fitted and a suitable supply is used.
Alternatively, a dedicated CHAdeMO DC 50 kW quick charger can recharge the battery to 80 percent capacity in as little as 30 minutes or less if the battery still holds some charge, meaning that e-NV200 can be charged while it is being loaded with goods for another delivery, for example.
More than 1,100 CHAdeMO quick chargers available to the public have been installed across Europe, with 220 of those in the UK. It is expected that e-NV200 fleet operators will install their own quick chargers at their place of business or works depots.
The equipment available on e-NV200 is reminiscent of a passenger car, bringing features like automatic headlights and wipers and allying them with Bluetooth and USB connectivity, all accessed with a convenient i-key, rear view camera, NissanConnect EV, heated seats, heated steering wheel. The new key even allows remote starting of the climate control system to cool or heat the cabin before beginning a journey.
A new electric air conditioning system has been optimised for an LCV that is regularly stopping and starting over its operating cycle. The system incorporates pre-heating control, which can be remotely operated via a smartphone, while seat and steering wheel heating is also provided.
Rear heating ducts are provided in passenger models while in van versions without a solid bulkhead between cabin and cargo area, a full-length flexible curtain prevents wastage by containing heat in the cabin area.
In warmer weather a new ventilation mode switches off both the air conditioning system and the heater to provide natural ventilation and window demisting with no electrical consumption which, in turn, benefits the vehicle range.
As well as allowing the timing or remote activation of the ventilation system, NissanConnect EV allows the driver or fleet manager to monitor the current state of charge or time to complete a charge remotely.
