Nissan’s second all electric vehicle, the e-NV200 electric van, will go on sale in Japan some time April 2014 (start of fiscal year). In the press release, Nissan also said the e-NV200 “will eventually be sold worldwide.” After the release in Japan, at some point, the e-NV200 will be available in the rest of the world.
The e-NV200 is Nissan’s second all-electric model available globally, following the world’s best-selling EV, the Nissan LEAF. Production of the e-NV200 model will begin at Nissan’s plant in Barcelona, Spain in mid-2014.
Can we assume they will sell it in all the same places the LEAF is for sale?
Nissan is in discussions with the government in the city of Yokohama, to use the electric vans for public services. In Barcelona, Spain, Nissan will provide e-NV200 electric vans for taxi use.
“Plans are being made to use the e-NV200 for smart transportation in Barcelona, such as for taxis. Along with this, preparations are in process to install a quick charger network and dedicated EV parking areas to support the taxis.”
