Nissan recently announced that it’ll discontinue the diesel version of the Nissan NV200 before the scheduled production stop that takes place in the summer. Therefore, in just a few months this van will be available only in its electric variant, the e-NV200.
The electric van e-NV200, which is exclusively made at the Nissan Motor Ibérica plant in Barcelona got its production increased last year by 50 percent to 6.000 units.
This electric van has two variants, one optimized for cargo, other for passengers (Combi) with room for up to seven seats. Nissan sees the cargo variant as a perfect vechicle for last mile delivery. Moreover, the seven seats variant is great for taxis.
Anyway, currently the Nissan e-NV200 shares the same 40 kWh battery with the Nissan LEAF, it’ll be interesting to see if it’ll ever get the 62 kWh battery version and start selling in North America. On the Nissan USA website the Nissan e-NV200 is still listed as a future concept.
