Nissan Begins Deliveries Of 40 kWh e-NV200 With 4,600 Orders To Fill

MAY 23 2018 BY MARK KANE 16

Nissan announced the beginning of deliveries of the new e-NV200 van with the 40 kWh battery shared with the LEAF, that replaces the bit small 24 kWh unit offered earlier.

Nissan e-NV200

As with all NV200, the e-NV200 is produced in Barcelona, Spain where the new 40 kWh batteries are assembled into packs.

Since Nissan began sales of the e-NV200 in 2014, more than 18,000 were sold. And now, since orders book were opened for the 40 kWh version in January, more than 4,600 were ordered – the record volume is comparable to sales in of the electric van in all of 2017.

Nissan e-NV200 is available in Europe, Hong Kong and Japan, but sadly Nissan didn’t decided to bring the van to North America.

The higher capacity battery of 40 kWh enables driving of up to 280 km (174 miles) in NEDC. The WLTP rating is 200 km (125 miles) or up to 301 km (187 miles) in city.

“The new generation van will further support efforts to cut the level of emissions in city centres, by making 100% electric last mile deliveries achievable for businesses and professional drivers everywhere.”

“Nissan Barcelona Plant has been the global manufacturing location for the e-NV200 since 2014, which was the best-selling electric van in Europe last year. With more than 18,000 of the original version sold worldwide, the upgraded van is now being shipped to customers in Europe and to Hong Kong, with Japan deliveries to follow.

Its new 40kWh battery has extended the driving range, allowing customers to drive up to 301km (city WLTP cycle) on a single charge. This represents an increase of more than 60% compared to the previous generation, with longer journeys supported further by the extended European CHAdeMO Quick Charging network.

Customers can choose from two body options – the e-NV200 van and e-NV200 Evalia. Both have a versatile interior that allows users to configure racks, bins and seating to suit their needs. With 4.2m³ of load space, there is enough room to hold two Euro pallets, or cargo weighing up to 742kg.

For customers looking to move passengers or crew, the e-NV200 Evalia makes an ideal people carrier. With its ingenious modular seating there is still plenty of room for luggage or tools, and as the only 100% electric seven-seater van available in Europe, it presents the perfect solution for taxi and chauffeur businesses.

Nissan’s Barcelona plant is responsible not only for the manufacturing of the vehicle, but also the assembly of the new 40kWh battery packs, in a specialist facility.”

Gareth Dunsmore, Electric Vehicle Director, Nissan Europe

“Zero emission mobility is the future for urban logistics, as well as turning the last mile of delivery into a clean and efficient means of transport. The e-NV200 and its significantly increased range will play a key role in achieving this.”

What is the resistance to bringing this to the US. We need higher capacity evs for families and in town deliveries – crazy that there still isn’t anything available!

Gibber

I always thought it would do well enough here to offer it but never really expected to see it here until the 60 kWh pack was available.

Brandon

Gibber echoes my thoughts exactly. They will want a 200+ mile range van for here in the U.S. to be satisfactory for a lot of use cases. They likely don’t want to bring it until it’s up to par for the North American market.

No. Nissan wants to continue to force US consumers to buy gas vehicles. This is the sole reason they did not introduce the ENV-200 to the USA

And the import taxes and limitations can’t explain part of this?.
Anyway, I think it’s a smart vehicle for city delivery or services. Even with 40 kwh batteries.

I’m not sure you really want this model. The interior is among the cheapest you can find in ANY car sold in a western country. It is also an old design, with a crash safety that would get maybe 2 stars in the new Euro NCAP test. It is really too bad, because this could have been a real volume seller. It will sell well no matter what – bacuase it really has no competition at all. I was looking for, and tested the Nissan E-NV200 Evalia in the winter – and the drop in range was dramatic. Unless this model is safer, have better winter range – and just slightly better interior – it is at least not a vehicle I could recommend. If they come with a facelifted version with improved safety, heat pump and so on – I would consider buying one. Now, I’m just a bit bitter and grumpy – since I really wanted to buy this as a replacement for my van 2? years ago… and it was not good enough. With kids in the car, safety is also important. They should also offer it with better seats as an option. The price of the… Read more »

There isn’t very many white vans in the US? You tend to buy pickups, I believe.

It’s perfect as a smallish van for errands and transportation. For people mover? Not so much.

“What is the resistance to bringing this to the US.”

That means Nissan USA does not want to sell electric vehicles. Crystal Clear.
Now we know why Leaf is still selling at a lower volume despite a significant 150 mile range.
They delayed the sales of Rogue-Hybrid as well.

The “Sadly Nissan didn’t decided to bring” …
much of anything EV VAN, to “Decisive” North America!

Nissan “Innovation that Exits” … at least in North America!

dan

North America is not “decisive” when it comes to EVs. China is.

William

I was hoping for an edit of “didn’t decide / hadn’t decided”, so I guess MK is not reading the replies. China is!

William

“Hasn’t decided”

That’s the biggest leaf I’ve ever seen

This is the biggest LEAF you’ve ever seen:comment image

Yup! Except… That Limo Stetch was trapped with the old 24 kWh Battery!
