Nissan e-NV200 at Tokyo Motor Show 2013 (Photos + Video)
The Nissan e-NV200 is the second electric Nissan officially scheduled for series production.
We’ve enclosed some unique photos in which we see the latest version of this already 2-years van that debuted at the North American International Auto Show in 2012.
The design is similar, though the flashy rims are now gone. The interior is now simpler and more crude.
The CHAdeMO station beside suggests that Nissan is still fully committed to using this standard for fast charging.
Nissan has always stated that e-NV200 will borrow the LEAF drivetrain – same motor and single-speed transmission. Probably battery will be same too, but the question is how many kWh will be in the production version and will the chemistry type be the same.
Using the same 24-kWh battery pack as in the LEAF could end up being too small in the real world for use by businesses. Let’s hope Nissan goes with something bigger.
Production will begin in mid-2014, but initially just for Japan. Maybe We expect that sales in US and Europe are still at least a year from now.
