Following the Nissan’s recent announcement that Mitsubishi would be part of its new Alliance together with Renault after acquiring a 34% stake in MMC with 12 new EVs and fully autonomous vehicles due for 2022, it has made EV headlines again with the new longer range, zero-emissions van called the e-NV200.
Claiming to go further than ever in a single charge, the fully electric e-NV200 with a new 40kWh battery offers a 60% extended range of up to 280 km. There will be no compromise with load space or pay load either, as there has been no increase in the battery size.
Nissan Europe, Electric Vehicle Director, Gareth Dunsmore said, “With its longer range and excellent cargo capacity, the new e-NV200 is the perfect last mile delivery solution for urban deliveries and collections. Given the huge impact that business deliveries/collections and professional drivers have on air quality and traffic congestion, especially in city centres, helping cut the level of CO2 emissions they create is a vital part of creating a more sustainable future”.
Nissan is no stranger to making to such incredible EV feats. Its recently debuted, all-new LEAF, with Nissan’s signature V-Motion grilled like the one found in the X-Trail, is capable of 378 km of driving range on a single charge. This is served on the side of 147 hp and a whopping 320 Nm of torque – on an electric car for the masses mind you. It will also come with Nissan’s ProPilot, a semi autonomous technology which will rival the Honda Sensing. Better yet, the all-new Leaf has been confirmed for Malaysia, due in 2018.
