Nissan is in the final development phase of its second mass produced electric vehicle, the e-NV200 electric van. Last week Nissan unveiled the 100% electric panel van version e-NV200 concept decorated with Nissan and FedEx graphics and logos at the 64th IAA Commercial Vehicle International Motor Show in Hanover, Germany.
Nissan has been working with FedEx since December of 2011 testing the e-NV200 in real world operations to help shape development of the 100% electric compact delivery vehicle. FedEx currently operates 130 all electric vehicles worldwide. The tests began on the streets of London and was recently expanded to Yokohama Japan in order to obtain real world driving feedback. Going forward, the test will be expanded into Singapore, USA and Brazil.
Nissan plans to roll out the zero emissions technologies into its LCV line-up. The e-NV200 is the second of 4 electric vehicles announced by Nissan to reach mass-production, underlining Nissan’s desire to be a leader in the EV segment.
The e-NV200 combines the same powertrain found in the 100% electric Nissan Leaf with all the space and practicality of a multi-purpose compact van.
