An upgraded version of Nissan’s zero-emissions, all-electric van, the e-NV200, is now being shipped. A new 40kWh battery, shared with the Nissan Leaf, extends the vehicle’s driving range by up to 301km (on the city WLTP) on a single charge. The new range marks an increase of more than 60% compared to the previous generation, but doesn’t affect the vehicle’s carrying capacity.
Nissan’s plant in Barcelona, Spain, not only manufactures the vehicle, but also assembles the new 40kWh battery packs in a new, specialist facility.
“Zero emission mobility is the future for urban logistics, as well as turning the last mile of delivery into a clean and efficient means of transport,” said Gareth Dunsmore, electric vehicle director of Nissan Europe.
“The e-NV200 and its significantly increased range will play a key role in achieving this.”
