•New advanced battery gives drivers 100km extra range, offering 280km*on a single charge
•Designed to help improve air quality in city centres all over EuropeOSLO, Norway (Oct., 2. 2017)
– Nissan, the world's leading electric vehicle manufacturer has today announced its new longer range, zero-emissions van that goes further than ever on a single charge.
The new 40kWh battery for the 100% electric e-NV200 offers a 60% extended range of up to 280km (174miles) NEDC1. And, with no increase in size of the battery itself, customers will face no compromise in either load space or payload. Crucially, it can help make 100% electric last miles delivery achievable for businesses and professional drivers everywhere, with customers now able to drive more than 100 km (62 miles) further on a single charge.
The new longer range e-NV200 was unveiled today at Nissan Futures 3.0 in Oslo, Norway – Europe's Green Capital for 2019. As well as helping business customers enhance their green credentials, the van represents a key pillar in Nissan's wider commitment to cutting the level of CO2 emissions in city centres caused by professional drivers making deliveries and/or collections.
Gareth Dunsmore, Electric Vehicle Director, 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 ecosystem – now and for generations to come.'
The new e-NV200 equipped with upgraded 40kWh battery will be available to order before the end of 2017.1 Subject to final homologation process
