The Japanese manufacturer has opened its order books for the upgraded e-NV200 with 40 kWh battery – and rewards early clients with its limited edition called 2.ZERO.
Initially, the model hits the stores in Italy, Belgium, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Other countries shall follow within the upcoming weeks. First deliveries are scheduled for spring 2018.
As reported, Nissan claims a 60 percent increase in range, meaning that the utility vehicle is able to run for 280 kilometres on one charge (NEDC). The larger battery pack does not come at the price of cargo as its size is the same and thus does not effect the load volume that is still at 4.2 cubic metres, while load capacity is at 628 kilos.
Versions now include a box van and the Evalia also known as e-NV200 Combi, a people’s carrier Nissan has recently pledged as zero emission cab in London. Pricing is starting at 34,105.40 euros (28,660 euros net) for the box van.
“With its longer range and optimal exterior dimensions and cargo capacity, the upgraded 40kWh e-NV200 is the perfect last mile solution for urban deliveries and collections. Given the huge impact that professional drivers have on air quality and traffic congestion, especially in city centres, helping cut the level of CO2 emissions they create is a vital part of creating a more sustainable future”, says Gareth Dunsmore, responsable for EVs at Nissan Europe.
