The world’s leading electric vehicle manufacturer – Nissan, has announced its new longer-range e-NV200 van with a new advanced 40kWh battery.
Offering a 60% extended range of up to 280km, the new 40kWh battery for the 100% electric e-NV200 can help make journeys last longer on a single charge.
The new longer-range e-NV200 was unveiled at Nissan Futures 2.0 conference in Oslo, Norway – Europe’s Green Capital for 2019. The van represents a key objective in Nissan’s wider commitment to reducing the level of CO2 emissions in city centres caused by professional drivers making deliveries and/or collections.
Gareth Dunsmore – Electric Vehicle Director at Nissan Europe, said: “With its longer range and excellent cargo capacity, the new e-NV200 is the perfect last mile delivery solution for urban deliveries and collections. Given the huge impact that business deliveries/collections and 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.”
He added, “The world is going electric, which means re-thinking pretty much everything we know about driving, commuting and powering our lives. But to make that future viable, we must create a fully electric ecosystem that enables modern life to be cleaner, safer and more connected for everyone. Smarter, better 100% electric vehicles like the new e-NV200 are at the heart of that eco-system – now and for generations to come.”
The new e-NV200 equipped with the upgraded 40kWh battery will be made available to order in the UK before the end of 2017.
