Nissan began taking orders for the new 40 kWh e-NV200 in Japan, with deliveries planned for December
Order books for this version of the electric van actually opened way back in January in Europe, with deliveries there set for this Spring.
Nissan e-NV200 40 kWh battery
The new e-NV200 is highly improved compared to the old 24 kWh versions. The 40 kWh pack extends the range by some 65% to 280 km (174 miles) in NEDC.
Besides the longer-range, the battery warranty is now 8 years or 160,000 km (100,000 miles), instead of 5 years or 100,000 km.
In Japan, e-NV200 comes standard with two on-board electric outlets (Power Plug supply) with enhanced output of 1,500 W total (up to 1,000 from a single outlet).
The price in Japan starts from around $36,800.
There are still no signs that Nissan will introduce the electric version of this van in the U.S.
Nissan introduces improved e-NV200 with higher-capacity battery
The updated electric commercial vehicle offers increased range, longer battery life and an enhanced Power Plug supply
YOKOHAMA, Japan – Nissan began taking orders today for its newly improved Nissan e-NV200 electric commercial vehicle, featuring a higher-capacity battery that offers longer range and battery life. Deliveries of the vehicle will begin in Japan in December.
The Nissan e-NV200 features a new 40 kilowatt-hour battery, which gives the vehicle a range of 300 kilometers under Japan’s JC08 standard. It combines excellent load capacity and a driver-friendly cabin with brisk acceleration and a superior quietness that only a pure electric vehicle can offer.
The new e-NV200 can also operate as a mobile power storage unit. The vehicle’s Power Plug, a 100-volt outlet, can provide electricity for tools and equipment. With the optional EV Power Station installed, the Nissan e-NV200 can even supply electricity to offices and shops and serve as a backup power source during blackouts and emergencies.
Main improvements to the Nissan e-NV200 include:
High-capacity 40kWh battery
The new, high-capacity 40kWh battery gives the Nissan e-NV200 a driving range of 300 km (JC08 mode). This allows the driver to travel farther on a single charge and also reduces the frequency of charging.
Power supply from Power Plug increased to 15 hours
Thanks to the new 40kWh battery, 1000 watts of power from the Power Plug can be accessed for up to 15 hours1, up from eight hours in the current model.
Improved battery life
Thanks to enhanced battery capacity and durability, the Nissan e-NV200 offers a longer battery life. The battery’s warranty has been extended to eight years and 160,000 km, up from five years and 100,000 km previously.
A full charge in eight hours, even with higher capacity
The Nissan e-NV200’s standard-equipment normal charger now has a capacity of 6 kW, up from 3 kW. By adding a wall-mounted 6kW normal-charging system, the 40kWh battery can be fully charged in about eight hours – roughly the same as the previous standard charger – at places such as a customer’s office or shop.2
1) The maximum load is a total of 1500 watts from two outlets. Duration of supply may vary depending on vehicle status (battery level, Power Plug user-controlled settings, etc.)
- Power Plug is now standard equipment in all models.
- NissanConnect (built-in terrestrial digital broadcasting) navigation system (wagon), offers improved convenience and operability with added DVD playback function, music box function and finger-gesture operation.
- Auto-light system is now standard equipment (all models).
- UV-cut insulated privacy glass on the sliding door, back door and sliding side window on both sides is now standard equipment (van, excluding route van).
- A new exterior color, Excellent Blue, has been added, bringing the number of colors to five.
2) 6kW wall-mounted normal charger is sold separately. When using a quick charger, it’s possible to charge the battery to about 80% in about 40 minutes.
