Japanese city to test Nissan e-NV200 electric van

The e-NV200 is based on Nissan’s popular multipurpose commercial van, the NV200, and shares a powertrain with the LEAF.

 

Saitama, a suburb of Tokyo, has begun field tests of a Nissan e-NV200 electric van. The new EV will be used for deliveries between the Saitama City Hall and other city offices. Saitama is promoting the adoption of EVs through its E-KIZUNA project, which began in 2009, and also includes building charging infrastructure, developing incentives and building community awareness.

Nissan began field tests for the e-NV200 in 2011 with several corporate fleet operators, including AEONMALL and Coca-Cola in Japan, British Gas in the UK and FedEx Express in Singapore.

The e-NV200 is based on Nissan’s popular multipurpose commercial van, the NV200, and shares a powertrain with the LEAF. It features a telematics system and a power supply in the cargo compartment.
