“I Made The Switch” – Portrait Of A Nissan e-NV200 Owner: Erik Vos, Amsterdam
Nissan e-NV200 is an electric car (well van), which just like the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, isn’t yet available in the U.S.
Those Japanese manufacturers like to test American’s patience it seems.
In the case of e-NV200 we await a 30 kWh version to be announced as in the 2016 LEAF, but it appears the standard 24 kWh apparently wasn’t enough for such a big vehicle to be offered in the US.
Erik Vos, a furniture shop owner in Amsterdam, proves in latest “I Made The Switch” episode that even the 24 kWh e-NV200 can be useful on longer distances combined with CHAdeMO fast chargers.
Vos averages a distance of 200 km (125 miles) a day, while his record was 450 km (280 miles)! In home and in the shop, the e-NV200 is charged through slow AC to be always ready when needed.
Nissan e-NV200 is rated at 170 km (106 miles) under NEDC – 85% of the Nissan LEAF’s result, so under EPA it would likely be 116 km (72 miles). Besides the cargo version, there is also a 5 and 7 seater.
