Coca-Cola starts testing the Nissan e-NV200 electric van

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 14, 2012

Nissan has been lending the e-NV200 to companies like FedEx and Coca-Cola to get feedback about the emissions-free delivery van as a delivery vehicle before it starts selling in late 2013 or early 2014. Nissan said that the all electric cargo van sent to Coca-Cola Central Japan Co., Ltd., will be used as a regional sales vehicle in Yokohama.

The van will be charged overnights to test if one night of charging is enough for daily use. The e-NV200 uses the all-electric powertrain found in the Nissan Leaf. This powertrain is then used on Nissan’s NV200 utility vehicle. Nissan will retrieve the companies’ comments about the e-NV200 so that it could still make modifications before it goes on sale.

"Providing a large, multi-functional interior space to both business and private users, the e-NV200 commercial EV will deliver innovation in the commercial vehicle market and further Nissan’s leadership in the EV market. Combining the advanced powertrain of the Nissan LEAF with the innovative and practical NV200 base vehicle will not only deliver zero CO2 emissions, but also superior acceleration and quietness. In addition, e-NV200 has class-leading levels of operating costs, one of the most critical factors for businesses using commercial vehicles." said the press release.
