Nissan's e-NV200 going into production in Barcelona in 2013
The upcoming Nissan e-NV200 all electric commercial van is slated to go into production at Nissan's factory in Barcelona, beginning in 2013. The e-NV200 is the all electric version of the NV200 van that's targeted at the light commercial van market.
When launched the e-NV200 will be Nissan's second all electric vehicle, following the Nissan Leaf introduced in late 2010. Producing the e-NV200 in Barcelona allows the van to be built on the same assembly line which builds the NV200.
The e-NV200 provides the functional and roomy interior space with innovative and practical features of the NV200, combined with the all electric drive train powering the Nissan Leaf. The electric motor on the e-NV200 is the same power as the Leaf's, as is the battery pack capacity. This melding of the Leaf with a cargo/commercial van can be thought of as a Leaf that can haul stuff or people. The e-NV200 also recently won the Environmental Award in the 2012 Fleet World Honors program.
