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.”

That’s cool but they better start offering a larger battery soon. Hauling 7 people is going to wear down the battery damn quickly . . . especially if they have to go up some hills.

The average American family is fat…time to get fit and have longer range per charge.

Certainly not.
But gauging overweight by BMI ain’t very accurate.
I got 30 BMI and nobody see me as a fat guy, because I ain’t.
And some under 25 BMI might be very fat.

According to goingelectric the additional Wright oft 450kg results in 10-20 less km of range.

Offer this with the 200 mile battery and I’m sold. 7 seats is a must. NPNS

Wait, doesn’t the Model S come with an (optional) 7-seat configuration too?

If so, the eNV-200 is not the first but rather the 2nd, or the 1st affordable one 🙂

A 5+2 seating is what Tesla really is. And once you use those seats, extremely limited space for baggages.

This is for 7 adults with space for luggages (as shown in the picture). Think of it as minivan in the 90’s.

Drooling continues…

As I stated some time ago, the US version of NV200 is actually “longer” than versions around the globe (you can verify info from Nissan News Media website). That, plus the rumored larger batteries, should make 150mi / charge feasible.

Obviously, a 150mi/charge, 7 people with luggages, AND freeway speed driving capability would be a slam dunk…

A boy could dream, a boy could dream…

Especially if you take the longer wheelbase idea and add it to the 2016 105 to 110 epa 30kW battery hopefully take the thing up to 36kW or so. Beef up the springs and keep the cargo capacity high and this looks like a winner especially for local delivery jobs and such. If I could do 2.5 to 3 hours of driving in the am and take a 1/2 hour CHAdeMO break to eat my lunch while charging… then do a couple more hours of deliveries and pickups in the afternoon on the way back that would do it. Next take that battery tech… stretch it and give it to me in a Frontier or Titan.

“105 to 110 epa 30kW battery hopefully take the thing up to 36kW or so. ”

kWh, not kW!!!!

EV owners should know better.

Those kind of vehicle should have at least 40kWh to 50kWh to be more practical. So it would at least get 50% of the total range in about 30 minutes with 50kW DCFC capability.

A van has bad aerodynamics. To make it run 150 EPA miles, it will need at least 60 kWh battery pack. That will make it cost at least 50000$. No one will buy a van for 50000$.

Great! Bring it to the US! We love our 7-seat minivans and SUVs here!

It also has to do well in NHTSA and IIHS crash testing…

e-NV200 only got a 3 star out of 5 stars overall in the Euro NCAP testing…

LOL. It is a nice concept. Will work greatly for Taxi in the US but won’t work for families…

US family vehicles needs to have the range. If you have a family of 7, then you are more likely to drive to Grandma instead of flying to Grandma’s house. Weekend camping trip or trips to National parks will be on the list of things to do…

Nobody wants to stop for 1 hr charging with 1 hr hwy driving on the way to destination.

Add a REx, then it will be a hit.

In my 2 car household I would love to have this car even with a 60 mile range for 95% of the time and then have a plug in Town and Country for our second car with all of the long roadtrip fun. Sure I’d prefer the Model X but i’m too cheap to justify the cost.

How much more $ or gas would this one potentially saves over your PHEV Town and Country?

Minivans are actually perfectly candidates for PHEV where it is either short distance errands or long distance trips where the intermediate trips are more rare. Even in those case, the saving of a BEV version over a REx version is minimal… So, a PHEV version would be far more practical until we have at least 200 miles real world range plus a good supporting infrastructure.

Once again, your own assumption becomes the fact of everyone. BRAVO!

1st question, do you have kids, especially more than 1?

2nd question, assuming that you do have kids, ever had the need to drive grandparents around town with your kids for meals or sports game? Same for driving other neighbors’ kids too!

3rd question, do you know that US National Parks are starting to add QC? In fact, there was a post for this just few weeks ago, I believe. Thus, those that live within range can go electric all the way without 1 drop of gas!

So remember, there’s a real world, and a world of MMF.

Once again, you are the one who think everyone all thinks like EV early adopters.. Please spare me with your self rightous attitude here. I have seen plenty of your idiotic posts to know that clearly. Question1: Yes, I have 2 kids. Question2: They don’t need to be in a limited range BEV b/c we actually have a life that requires more range than just a substandard crappy van based on the same LEAF chassis/battery. Question3: “do you know that US National Parks are starting to add QC” Do you know that you are absolutely clueless in terms of QC availablities in terms of Western States. Show me the nearest Chademo map support for Yosemite, Sequoia, Kings Canyon, Joshua Tree, Redwood, Lassen Volcanic…etc. There are no practical ones that is enough to make a roundtrip. Even if you go to the WA which has one of the best support EV network, wishing Olympic National Park or Cascades are pretty much at mercy of L2s… Let us NOT even mention the farther reason of Yellowstone, Glacier, Rocky Mountain or all the parks in Utah/AZ… Please Spare me with your idiotic claims. “remember, there’s a real world, and a world of MMF”… Read more »

“Apparently, the MMF world matches the real world expectation where the Londo Bell world only match the EV early adopter’s less than 1% world…”

I guess someone died and make you emperor od the US, because not even a president can have such thinking.

Thanks for proofing my point about you…and you didn’t even realize it.

“I guess someone died and make you emperor od the US, because not even a president can have such thinking. Thanks for proofing my point about you…and you didn’t even realize it. ” Apparently you can’t figure out that your thinking matches the less than 1% early adopter where my point was to why it won’t work due to the fact that majority people aren’t jumping up to buy them due to several reason. But yet you managed to think your early adopter thinking are the rules that apply to the entire US buyer population. Who is the idiot king here to think everyone must think of like you or the rest of the early EV adopters? Sorry to break it to you, your attitude won’t move the EV community forward. The facts are the EVs need to be better in order to be more appealing. Defending it or making excuses for the current crops of limited range BEVs won’t make the incentive driven EV market forward at all. Then again, why am I wasting my time with you since you were the retard that keep making excuse about EV sales and weather while the data have shown that both… Read more »


I guess that you are right, with such authority over the subject. May be because you have a crystal ball?

In short – there is 0 info as to whether the e-NV200 will be available in the US, and no data on what the charging infrastructure will be like IF AND WHEN the vehicle becomes available, yet you seem to know all the detail specs for the US version already, and be able to say, “it won’t work for family.”

Did I say somewhere that it will work for all family? I did say that it will work for some family…

But like I said, you have the magical power of future prediction, on something that no one knows anything about it…

Please, keep on enlighting us what the future of EV world should and will be like.

“you seem to know all the detail specs for the US version already, and be able to say, “it won’t work for family”

Don’t even try to back track. My original comment was about the European version for the US family. It is based on the European Spec. Nobody said anything about US spec since it doesn’t exist. The question is about the current version (which is Japanese and European version) for the US market. At the current rate of 24kWh (European version based on 6.6kW charging time), it won’t be practical for US buyers.

You are the one that somehow claims a magical superiority in predicating what the US spec could/would be…

Lastly, you are the one that “dreaming” about a potential longer range while there is NOTHING said in the article here about anything more. It is also you who tried to pick up on my original comment about the CURRENT VERSION not being practicl for the US market.

So, overall, you need to get a freaking life and stop your stupid “drooling”… While you are at it, learn to reply to the comment thread instead of starting a new thread…

Que bi-polar inside ev’s debate. A 7 seater leaf is a great idea it will be popular with people who need 7 seats but can handle the range. This segment might be a reasonable size in terms of numbers but probably insignificant in terms of %. Why is this an issue? It doesn’t have to sell in the millions, have a 500 mile range to be worth making and selling.

Agree, Just_Chris, and for the record, Just_Chris and I are NOT the same person, though our minds think alike in this subject. It will take a very long time for EV of whatever kind to become mainstream. Probably 2-3 generations from now – at least…in the mean time, we need EVs to crave out, little by little, the rock solid foundation on operating an ICE vehicle. If the argument for not having enough range holds true for the e-NV200, then there shouldn’t be so many (relatively speaking) EVs such as LEAFs and (growing #s) i3s. In fact, there should NOT be any EVs at all, because, when the EV movement got started, “not enough range,” and “not fit for family in (location)” were 2 of the biggest counterpoint on the anti-EV movement, in addition to “too expensive.” There’s never a 1-car-fits-all scenario. This will fill a niche segment. It may be small, but by being the ONLY vehicle with this capacity (not a drop a gas, 7 seater, plus space for luggage) at this price range, that can mean some tens of thousands of vehicles for the next few years. Need proof? Look at the Nissan LEAF worldwide, or even… Read more »

Comes with a full size spare tire. That’s different. Wonder if Carwings is 3G yet.
