Nissan said Saturday it is in the final development phase of its second mass production zero emission vehicle, the e-NV200 compact van.
Electric vehicles are ideal for urban delivery applications, and this vehicle is envisaged for use as a delivery van that offers a breakthrough type of mobility for entrepreneurs, featuring efficiency and green consciousness, suggests Nissan.
The company has been working with several large commercial fleets in global markets since 2011 to understand how the e-NV200 test car performs under real operating conditions.
So far, according to Nissan, the e-NV200 has received positive comments for its quiet, comfortable driving with no emissions and low noise, CO2 reduction, and generous carrying capacity.
Feedback will help Nissan adapt future battery-powered light commercial vehicles to better fulfill exacting customer requirements.
The 100% electric compact van, e-NV200, is scheduled for launch in 2014. As Nissan’s second global electric vehicle, it follows Nissan LEAF, claimed to be the world’s first affordable 100% EV for the mass market.
