Nissan is introducing  a VIP version of its new e-NV200 electric car for comfortable city transport, with a two-tone metallic blue exterior and white leather seats.

This is just a concept, so don’t expect it on the market (it’s possible that some parts or features will be available in the future).

e-NV200 VIP Concept is based on the more prosaic e-NV200 Evalia people carrier, upgraded with two ‘Club Class’ rear seats, with integrated seat belts, armrests and extending leg rests and all the things you expect in a VIP passenger shuttle.

“Behind the spectacular two-tone exterior lies a sophisticated and luxurious interior. The seats are covered in premium quality white leather with blue accents, which contrast with the predominantly black lower portion of the cabin – the trim and carpets are black with a piano black finish on the control surfaces. The top half of the cabin, including the headlining, window surrounds and pillar covers are also white to create a spacious feel.”

“By positioning the rear seats well behind the sliding door not only is access to the passenger compartment made as easy as possible, it also extends legroom up to 670 mm and could accommodate the tallest of passengers in incredible limousine-like comfort. Behind the seats there is ample room for luggage, making the e-NV200 VIP Concept ideal for business travelers at airport transfers.

The rear passengers are entertained with the help of a 21.5-inch DSP monitor, which can display movies or other images from a passenger’s digital device, such as a smart phone, tablet, or computer.

The central console between the rear seats incorporates controls for the monitor and room lights as well as housing a drinks fridge. A large LED roof lamp spreads diffused light through the rear compartment, while each seat has an individual reading lamp.

The e-NV200 VIP Concept is equipped with Nissan’s Smart Rear-View mirror, as recently introduced at 2014 Geneva Motor Show. This innovation enables clear rearward visibility under all conditions. The Smart Rear-View mirror is housed within the structure of the conventional rear view mirror, with a built-in LCD monitor that can be activated in place of the conventional mirror. A high-resolution camera, mounted on the rear of the vehicle, provides the driver with a clear unobstructed view of the rear, giving the ability to check blind spots and other traffic conditions.”

Dany Boulenger, Nissan’s Global Corporate Sales, Division General Manager, stated:

“The e-NV200 Evalia is already an unprecedentedly quiet and comfortable vehicle, and this concept takes zero emission downtown transportation further, to a new level of serenity. The e-NV200 concept for VIPs is guaranteed to generate interest from luxury VIP operators.”

“Based on demand some of its features could easily be offered as affordable aftermarket conversions.”

VIPs in Nissan e-NV200 will move as quickly as the standard e-NV200, since it’s propelled by the same 80 kW motor from LEAF.

    Sounds great, the antithesis of kiddertainment centered people haulers, with this I just hire a college kid to do the driving to our mutually beneficial vacation destination whilst I relax in the back on my recliner with a cold beverage.
    oops, what was that AER again?

    I wonder how rough/smooth the ride would be. Not sure if it’s up to VIP levels.

    Really not large enough for the limo/luxe-airporter that Mercedes Sprinter ( and I’m sure, future RAM ProMaster and Ford Transit ) – but cute, nonetheless. Also – a high roof version would be much better, but a high roof version of this van is not yet available.

    Funny how this Nissan van will also be sporting a Chevy grille and be sold as the Chevrolet City Express. Kinda makes one wonder if they could slap a Chevy grille on a LEAF and peddle it like they do in China.
    Could’ve saved a ton of R&D money on the compliance SparkEV sold in three states!

      GM does do some oddball things sometimes…

      Makes one wonder who really is running that company… ELR?! – Or, who made the decision to redesign their top-selling model, the Silverado, which also serves as the base for Tahoe and Escalade – and NOT see Ford across town going for an all-aluminum body?! GM seems very backwards in thinking – and today’s big story is how desperately they are trying to design a NEW Silverado with aluminum and weight savings when the new model just came out!

      Sometimes it seems the bigger the corporation, the bigger the waste.

      Before you scream at me, I own a Volt and believe it alone is GM’s only saving grace.

        Good save James.

        I was just going to scream at you. 🙂

        What new article on the aluminum Silverado?

        1. James says:

          It’s all over the internut – backroom, GM is biting it’s nails and pacing the floor over the aluminum F-150. They’re fast-tracking the next Silverado, but at the same time – they are doing a Cruze-eco on the current one, rumors being that as soon as mid next year GM’s big trucks will sport new lightweighting adds, maybe even composite hoods and door skins!

          WOW! It’s amazing. And embarrassing if a fullsize F-150 gets better mileage than new Colorado and Canyon!

          Meanwhile, over at RAM – everybody’s touting the FIAT V-6 diesel in the 1500 light-duty truck! A F-I-A-T diesel?!!!

          GM could have a VIA EREV truck to market in record time. That would definitely leapfrog all this nonsense in the truck world.
