Nissan to begin production of e-NV200 electric LCV in FY 2013 at Barcelona

Nissan will begin production of its e-NV200 battery-electric compact van (earlier post) into production at its Barcelona plant in FY 2013, which will become the sole producer of the EV. The new model will be based on the existing NV200 currently produced at the plant.

e-NV200 will become Nissan’s second all-electric vehicle (EV) following the LEAF. The new model, which represents a €100 million investment by Nissan in Spain, is expected to create around 700 new jobs at the plant and throughout its local supplier base.

Nissan says that the addition of the e-NV200 to the Barcelona production slate highlights the growing competitiveness of Nissan’s Spanish industrial operations. Nissan last week allocated a new medium duty truck to the Avila Plant in central Spain.

The current NV200 line up has already sold around 100,000 units, and has been chosen as the next-generation New York City Taxi of Tomorrow. Currently, evaluations of prototype NV200-based electric vehicles are being carried out in Europe. Trials will continue in coming months.



It seems the the NV200 could evolve into various shapes and vehicles in the next few years. Will Nissan/Renault produce HEV, PHEV, BEV and ICE versions?
