Nissan’s venture into the world of all-electric vehicles have proven somewhat successful with the Nissan Leaf, but it does seem as though they are looking to capture yet another market with the introduction of the Nissan e-NV200 electric compact van. According to the Japanese auto manufacturer, the Nissan e-NV200 happens to be in the “final development phase” and it ought to go on sale to the public from 2014 onward. Not only that, Nissan is also looking forward by hastening the work that is being done on the e-NT400 electric light truck, which according to them, will feature an 87-mile range on a single charge.
The first announcement by Nissan for producing the Nissan e-NV200 happened in May last year, where they intend to plunge in $125 million in order to develop the vehicle, and that the electric panel van will roll off the company’s factory in Spain. The Nissan e-NV200 will feature a similar drivetrain as the one in the Leaf as part of an efficiency measure, begun testing the e-NV200 with FedEx in London sometime in late 2011, and those tests were expanded to Japan in 2012. All in all, it does seem as though the Nissan e-NV200 is well on track, although the final pricing details remain to be determined.
