Nissan unveils e-NV200 Concept at 2012 Hanover Motor Show

Article by Anita Panait, on September 20, 2012

Nissan is out to prove itself as a global leader in zero-emission mobility by combining the best features of its two multi-award winning vehicles -- Nissan LEAF and Nissan NV200 – to create the Nissan e-NV200 concept panel van. Nissan gave the e-NV200 concept panel van its international debut at the ongoing 64th Hanover Motor Show 2012, giving the public a preview of what to expect when the production version is rolled out possibly next year.

The e-NV200 concept panel van boasts of a cutting-edge all-electric drivetrain based on the advanced laminated lithium-ion battery and electric motor that powers the Nissan LEAF. This provides the e-NV200 with a driving range and performance comparable to Nissan LEAF. This will allow drivers to recharge the battery of their e-NV200 panel vans to 80 percent capacity in just 30 minutes for a minimal downtime, owing to its Quick Charge capability.

The e-NV200’s all-electric drivetrain will also be much cheaper to operate with lower fuel costs and reduced regular maintenance. An operator of e-NV200 could use the power stored in the battery to run electric tools and equipment up to 6,000W. This means that an e-NV200 operator could transform a suitably equipped panel van into a mobile restaurant or a mobile workshop.

The vehicle’s compact batteries are placed under the load space floor, helping lower the e-NV200’s center of gravity. This also allows the e-NV200 maintains to have the same cargo capacity as the conventional NV200.

Despite its compact overall dimensions, e-NV200 leads its class by being able to carry a load volume of up to 4.2 cubic meters. The panel van’s two-meter cargo length allows it to carry 20 standard Euro boxes while its width allows the vehicle to easily manage crowded city roads. Nissan will commence the production of the e-NV200 panel van in its 2013 financial year.
