Nissan and HKDC start field tests of battery-electric e-NV200

Nissan and Veolia’s subsidiary in Hong Kong, Hong Kong District Cooling Company Limited (HKDC), have started joint field tests for the battery-electric Nissan e-NV200 commercial vehicle at Kai Tak Development (KTD). (Earlier post.)

A new development area in Kowloon, KTD spans more than 320 hectares and includes the former Kai Tak airport site and adjoining districts. HKDC is currently operating the first environmentally-friendly District Cooling System (DCS) in KTD. The DCS serves chilled water for air-conditioning to buildings within the development area.

This road test is part of a comprehensive field testing program by Nissan to promote cleaner mobility solutions for Hong Kong.

During the field test, HKDC will operate a Nissan e-NV200 for use as an operations vehicle in KTD. HKDC will operate the vehicle in different road conditions, including both developed areas and construction sites. The vehicle will also be used at the Cruise Terminal as well asHong Kong’s Children Hospital, and will support daily DCS operations.

Vehicle operation data will be recorded and stored in a data logger for further analysis and research at Nissan’s research facilities inJapan. After three months of field testing, the companies will evaluate the model’s potential for commercial use inHong Kong.

Launched in June 2014 in Europe and also rolled out in Japan, e-NV200 is the second EV to be sold globally by Nissan, following the Nissan LEAF.
