Nissan’s Second All-Electric Vehicle Will (Literally) Deliver The Goods

Nissan says it will produce an all-electric version of its NV200 cargo van at its assembly plant in Barcelona, Spain beginning in 2013. This will be the company’s second electric vehicle, joining the compact Leaf in dealers’ showrooms. Leveraging the Leaf’s existing electric powertrain, the e-NV200 is expected to offer a similar range, which Nissan pegs at around 100 miles on a charge (though it can be far less in the real world depending on how and where it’s driven) and achieve a similar equivalent to its EPA-certified 106 mpg in city driving.

“The e-NV200 represents a genuine breakthrough in commercial vehicles,” says Nissan’s executive vice-president Andy Palmer. “The new model will offer all the spaciousness, versatility and practicality of a traditionally powered compact van, but with zero CO2 emission at the point of use and also provide an outstanding driving experience that is unique to EV’s.”
