Nissan to Produce 100% Electric Van
Nissan plans to roll out a second all-electric vehicle. The e-NV200 will follow in the tracks of the LEAF which was launched back in 2010.
The e-NV200 Concept, which is shown here, is a 100% electric compact van. Nissan says the e-NV200 will provide both businesses and families with functional and roomy interior space, combined with the most advanced powertrain components of the Nissan LEAF.
"The new model will offer all the spaciousness, versatility and practicality of a traditionally powered compact van, but with zero CO2 emission at the point of use and provides outstanding driving experience that is unique to EV's," said Andy Palmer, Nissan Executive Vice President.
The current NV200 line up has already sold around 100,000 units globally. It was chosen as the next generation New York City 'Taxi of Tomorrow' and will be available to taxi operators beginning in late 2013.
Nissan says the e-NV200 will begin production in Fiscal Year 2013.
