Nissan edges closer to e-NV200 launch

Published on Tuesday 01 October 2013 in Van News

All van drivers are keen to cut down on running costs. If reducing noise and harmful environmental emissions are a concern to you too, then you'll be pleased to learn that the boffins at Nissan are working hard on the introduction of the Nissan e-NV200 Zero Emission Van in the near future. The vehicle is in the testing phase at the moment and Nissan has joined forces with The City of London Corporation to complete a successful trial of the 100% electric van.

Scheduled to launch next year, the pure-electric commercial van is created with goals like CO2 reduction and minimising noise in mind and will be Nissan's second zero-emissions production vehicle (after the Leaf) when production begins next year.

Once it's on the road next year, the e-NV200 will be able to travel into extra-urban environments where other commercial vehicles aren't allowed due to environmental or traffic regulations - so the City of London Corporation, the local authority services provider for the 'Square Mile', was the perfect partner for trialing the e-NV200.

The vehicle was tested on the streets of central London and received positive feedback from all the drivers as they look to reduce costs and emissions in the City. It also demonstrated that the van can cover an average day of journeys on just one charge.

With the rising cost of filling up at the pump, the 100% electric e-NV200 promises to help reduce running costs while also helping the environment by bringing CO2 emissions down to zero at the point of use.
