Nissan 7 seat e-NV200

Nissan 7 seat e-NV200

Three months ago at the Geneva Motor Show, Nissan unveiled its 7-seat version of the all-electric e-NV200 with a goal to begin sales in Europe in April.

In the UK, sales will begin this July, together with introduction of the full-trim Evalia, and here we presents details on the offer.

Nissan stated that this world's first pure electric seven seater is being introduced in response to huge interest from fleet operators and larger families. Well, we already saw some demand for LEAF and e-NV200 taxi projects, so a 7-seat version should spark some interest.

After deducting grants, prices start at £19,895 (over $30,000), but without batteries (Nissan Flex battery leasing option). If you prefer to buy the whole car the price is £23,400 (almost $36,000). All prices with tax.

If Nissan will some day bring the e-NV200 to the US, then expect lower prices.

"Launched in response to demand

The launch of the seven-seat version fills a gap in the market for an electric vehicle (EV) capable of accommodating larger groups of people. Private hire companies and shuttle services in particular have been keen to see its introduction since the e-NV200 was launched last year.

The reason for this demand is clear. The e-NV200, which is based on the proven technology of the Nissan LEAF - the world's bestselling electric car - costs from just two pence per mile** to run and costs much less to maintain than a conventional diesel van.

Total cost of ownership is estimated to be £2,500 lower than a conventional diesel over three years***.

Yet, despite the low costs of ownership, the e-NV200 offers outstanding all-round performance. It has a homologated NEDC range of 106 miles on a single charge and can be charged from zero to 80% full in as little as 30 minutes.

Space and versatility

The seven seat version of the e-NV200 is configured with an additional two full-size seats to the rear of the vehicle, which can be individually and effortlessly folded and stowed.

The result is a supremely flexible and user-friendly interior that can quickly be optimised for either passengers or payload.

With all seating in use, the vehicle can accommodate seven adults with ease, offering ample leg and headroom for all occupants.

But the seven seat e-NV200 can also be configured for cargo.

With the second row of seats rolled forward and folded and the sixth and seventh seats folded to the side, a cavernous 2.94 cubic metre load space is revealed - big enough to transport three full-size bicycles with the wheels in place.

Even with all three rows in place, the seven seat e-NV200 still boasts an impressive 870 litre cargo capacity, allowing it to transport seven people and a large volume of luggage.

Evalia - an enhanced experience

The introduction of the new Evalia trim level improves simplicity for customers, such as VIP transfer providers, looking to ‘spec' top of the line models.

While Combi models come with an extensive list of optional extras, allowing buyers to cherry pick their creature comforts, Evalia models wrap everything up into one neat package to offer the highest levels of style, comfort and luxury.

For example, the Evalia comes complete with privacy glass (or optional clear glass for private hire purposes) on rear windows and co-ordinated exterior detailing."
