Nissan introduces improved e-NV200 electric van with higher-capacity battery

Nissan is introducing an improved Nissan e-NV200 electric commercial vehicle, featuring a higher-capacity battery that offers longer range and battery life. Nissan is taking orders in Japan for the vehicle; deliveries will begin in December.

The Nissan e-NV200 features a new 40 kWh battery pack, which gives the vehicle a range of 300 kilometers (186 miles) under Japan’s JC08 standard.

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.

Additional changes to the Nissan e-NV200 include:

  • With the new 40 kWh battery, 1000 watts of power from the Power Plug—now standard equipment in all models—can be accessed for up to 15 hours, up from eight hours in the current model.

  • With 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 6 kW normal-charging system, the 40 kWh battery can be fully charged in about eight hours—roughly the same as the previous standard charger.



It's another step by Nissan; albeit still a small one! The company seems happy with small steps while the World waits hoping a giant will sweep in with the will power to drive the necessary innovation leading to an electric future.
