How Much Can You Save With Nissan e-NV200? – Infographics

SEP 11 2014 BY MARK KANE 15

Nissan recently published two infographics:

1) How Much Can You Save With The Nissan e-NV200?

2) How Do You Charge Your Nissan e-NV200?

Especially interesting is the first one, which indicates that the average cost to charge for 100 km will be at 1.83 (based on France, Spain, Germany, UK and Italy), while the average cost of diesel is 8.48.

The Japanese company believes that this works out to a savings of €500 a year.

What, no CHAdeMO on this van? From plugshare, it seems that there is a reasonable start to a CHAdeMO network in Europe.


According to this site, ChaDeMo is standard for this van.

Why on Earth they don’t include it in the infographic – after all, this means that during lunch break you can nearly double your daily range – is a mystery.

On Nissans website I do see a CHAdeMO port on the van, in the gallery, and in the specs there is text that states 80% charge in 30 minutes.

Yes, I know that they claim to have it on the website. Why on earth don’t they highlight it in the infographic?

Also domestic plugs in the UK are 13A, I am pretty sure the rest of the EU is as well. From memory the Leaf charges at exactly 13A so why charge the Leaf van at 30% less?

I suspect this info graphic was hastily put together by the summer intern.

When will something like this be available in the US?

Supposedly they started selling them to be used as NYC cabs in October 2013. As for open sales to anyone, your guess is as good as mine. Nissan has not made a formal announcement, AFAIK.

I know they started selling the gas model already. But I hadn’t heard anything about them getting the EV model yet.

I wonder how they did the math to get 500 Euros of savings over 1 year. Seems low.

8.48 minus 1.83 = 6.65 euros savings per 100km.

500 euros total saving divided by 6.65 = 75.
75 x 100km= 7500km.

but it says they are using an estimate of 15,000 miles.

Thus, they must be assuming that the eNV-200 is driven 50% with electric and 50% with diesel.

If so:
I wouldn’t say you can save UP TO 500 Euros per year, I”d say you can save up to 1000 Euros per year with an average of about 500 Euros.

It is a 100% BEV, so no diesel. The number does seem low though.


The problem is the battery longevity. Can you drive with sinle battery 12 years or is it required to replace battery after six years?

This is the rationale for larger battery, because it lasts twice as long and also the charge level can be kept at optimal range between 30 % and 60 %. This improves the calendar life of battery pack significantly.

Also twice as large battery pack is still good when the range has degraded 30 % to 50 %. This further improves the longevity of long range battery pack, so that single long range battery is good for the whole service life of the van.

What? Please, ask yourself the question, would you rather:
– Pay for twice the capacity now, ie 2 x 2014 pricing, or
– Buy only what you need today, and maybe (your speculation) have to replace the pack a few years sooner, at the 2020~2025 price?

Clearly, with batteries remaining quite heavy but getting a little cheaper every year, buying more than you need isn’t a smart move.

Not only that but why buy a more expensive battery now when you can buy a cheaper one in 6 years or so with more range? My bet is higher energy density batteries are coming, and 2020-2025 is about the right time.

There will not be cheaper batteries after six years, if we are not today creating markets for high energy density long range batteries.

The drawback of low range batteries is that they have low energy density and consequently high cost, because you need more cells per kWh. This more or less necessity in order to achieve sufficient longevity and high enough power density.
