APR 20 2018 BY MARK KANE 15

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.

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

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

Other changes:

    • 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.

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.)

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.

Nissan could make a shorter version of it and declare it the first EV mini van and it will sell since mini vans are hot trend these days


It’s a minivan already. Way smaller then a VW Transporter/Caravelle/Eurovan.

Not smaller then the Odessey, Pacifica, Sedona, or Toyota mini van

Absolutely nothing new about that. There have been commercial BEV mini-vans for years in Europe, by Renault, Citroen, Ford, VW as well as this model, and they sell quite well.
There’s nothing “mini” about the huge-ass vehicles the US calls minivans, not to mention, both the C-Max and Pacifica have PHEV versions.

Hopefully when the 60kWh version comes out (maybe synced to the Leaf upgrade), they will bring it state side?

With really poor crash safety for a modern vehicle , cheap hard plastic interior.
Wait for a new safe design. It got 3 out of 5 stars in Euro NCAP in 2014. Think what it would get in a new test with higher requirements.. 2 stars? 1 stars ?

Didn’t realize this. Important consideration.

The ICE powered version of the NV200 is sold in the US and in NYC is heavily used as a taxi (so I have been told). My cousin lives in Fort Lauderdale and I used to see one parked on the same street that she lives on when I went to visit her. Did not see it the last couple of times but, have seen others in south Florida while on visits there. So, no, crash safety is not a reason for importing the electric version of the van that is being used as a taxi in New York,

I’m just saying it’s not a safe car. For city driving, I’m sure It’s good enough – but It’s score is really low compared to a new and modern car.
It also lack in drivers aid systems.

It’s really good it got a battery upgrade, since it loose a LOT of range in winter – compared to other EVs too.

I may even buy one myself, but that is due to lack of competition, and not performance, material quality, safety or looks.

The eNV200 tested with the 2014 rules:
It would have scored 2 or less stars in 2018 for sure.

I would buy this over the model 3 if given the chance. Perfect family carpool city car to replace our Leaf! (Assuming the price is right)

Nissan has always delivered a surprisingly slow rollout of EV product.

I’d be interested in it too if they sold it in NA. Depends if the battery has some kind of cooling like the 24kwh version apparently does.

I have a 40kWh eNV200 on order here in Ireland. We were supposed to take delivery this month but the first RHD production run for customers got pushed to May.
