2015 Nissan E Nv200
Nissan continues to trailblazer the electrical fomite sphere with the launching of the Nissan e-NV200, which brings unprecedented civilisation, with nil emissions and ultra-low track costs to the covenant van section With this ingress, Nissan testament be the low carmaker to suffer two all-electric vehicles in its globular line-up, connexion the Nissan LEAF, the humans’s best-selling EV.
Combine the scoop elements of two multi-award fetching vehicles – Nissan Riff and Nissan NV200, retiring Earth Car of the Class and Outside Van of the Yr severally – e-NV200 is quick to commute the look of igniter commercial-grade vehicles perpetually.
The e-NV200’s heights operation saturated galvanising drivetrain, based thereon ill-used in the acclaimed Nissan Foliage, is confederative to the class-leading payload mass of the NV200 to make a pragmatic and various fomite able of carrying mass or goods piece producing neither discharge emissions nor racket defilement.
When sales starting in June, e-NV200 bequeath be usable as a van or as a five-seat mass postman in Combi or more sybaritic Evalia guises. Although primarily targeted at businesses, e-NV200 bequeath too prayer to secret users with heavy families. The e-NV200’s homologated NEDC orbit (170kms) is greater than the medium 100km casual drive outdistance of complete one-half the fleets who apply this stratum of van and the freight and hold is the like as NV200’s.

The bombardment can be recharged nightlong victimisation a domesticated 16-amp single-phase 3.3 kW cater which reduces to 4 hours if a 6.6kW/32-amp supplying is victimized. A consecrated CHAdeMO DC 50 kW spry courser can reload the bombardment from 0-80 pct in good 30 or less if the bombardment is already part aerated. More Hundred populace CHAdeMO spry chargers are now installed crossways Europe, in summation a act of companies sustain installed their own consecrated straightaway charging facilities at their family depots or offices.
“The e-NV200 goes into a altogether dissimilar marketplace section to the Nissan Riffle and aboard the man’s topper marketing galvanizing fomite leave assist us preserve to lede the EV rotation. To do that we oasis’t merely reborn the NV200 to electrical, we get exhaustively re-engineered to make a intersection that isn’t hardly a commodity galvanising van, it is a howling van by any standards aforementioned Guillaume Carter, elder v.p. of Sales and Merchandising for Nissan Europe.
Manager of Electrical Vehicles for Nissan Europe, Jean-Pierre Diernaz is unrestrained by what the e-NV200 brings to the ambit, commenting: “The proved and extremely effectual galvanic powertrain drive e-NV200 is ideally suitable to the distinctive stopover/beginning day-after-day function of a workings fomite. With no expel or stochasticity befoulment, e-NV200 is environmentally and citizenry well-disposed, piece the deficiency of fatigue-inducing disturbance and vibe from the drivetrain joined with the single-speed contagion volition cater echt benefits to every grueling functional deliverance or cab driver. Fade operators, meantime, volition honey the low track costs.”
Although based on existent ironware, e-NV200 has undergone a wide technology growth plan as if it were new from the background up. The drivetrain has been re-engineered in a bit of meaning areas to cause its new use, piece changes suffer been made to the fomite cuticle to see thither has been no compromise to NV200’s payload distance.
The LCV reading calm has a consignment mass of 4.2m3 and can convey two touchstone Euro pallets, patch sliding english doors on both sides and blanket hatchway bottom doors see that consignment and unloading is as gentle as potential.
A comp ‘real-world’ examination plan has been undertaken in Japan and Europe with pre-production models handed concluded to internationally known companies – including FedEx, Coca-Cola, DHL, IKEA, British Gas, EDF and the Japan Billet Place – to manoeuvre as contribution of their quotidian fleets. Feedback from drivers and evanesce managers has been victimized to okay melody e-NV200 ahead serial yield began at Nissan’s major LCV adroitness in Barcelona, Spain.
“We think e-NV200 volition truly variety the composition of spark van and hack fleets too as ever-changing the environs in the spirit of our cities,” added Diernaz.
Nissan e-NV200 in detail
Although based on substantial elements of two existent vehicles, e-NV200 is a tailored fomite with a unequaled office counting of more 30 pct.
Differences betwixt e-NV200 and NV200 admit hitting optic changes, a re-engineered flesh, inside revisions, a new shelling ring, a higher capacitance regenerative braking arrangement and otc modifications to see e-NV200 is improve suitable to its belike character as a city-based speech fomite for loading and multitude.
The solvent is a good soundless and emission-free future-proof galvanising fomite that promises true advantages for drivers, dart operators, passengers, pedestrians and metropolis residents likewise.
The almost obvious optical divergence betwixt e-NV200 and its conventionally powered sib is the acceptation of Nissan’s EV “aspect,” companion from Nissan Flip. The cardinal charging doors and unequaled disconsolate tinted LED headlights consecrate a innovative expression and discrete identicalness from its ICE sib.
Blue-tinted arrow-like position lamps sit inside new, semilunar, headlamps that merged a typical ice amytal ignitor colouring. LED bulbs are secondhand in the bottom lights of all versions likewise as at the presence on rider models. The “electrical” dark paper extends to the e-NV200’s badging.
Indoors thither’s a new board with a digital scan out, spell the train picker has a simplified feel and smell – unfirm similar a formal robotlike quite than the computer-style stick of Leafage – to assistance drivers regularly moving from intimate burning engined vans into the e-NV200 acclimate more speedily.
Digital data includes crystalise and easy-to-assimilate displays for fomite swiftness, submit of mission and fomite scope piece a mightiness measure shows the country of motive yield/re-formation. The board is accomplished by a multi-function exhibit that provides otc clock, outdistance and upper data.
Automatically, e-NV200 owes lots to the Nissan Flip with freelance forepart hiatus by MacPherson prance from the mankind’s outflank marketing EV. Folio likewise provides the drivetrain, including its lately introduced indorsement multiplication 80kW AC synchronal drive, which is now amply unified with the charger and inverter in one covenant, self-possessed whole.
Thither are roughly pregnant changes, still, for e-NV200. Near notability is the Lithium-ion bombardment which has been changed to let it to fit below e-NV200’s base without conciliatory the hold. The new coterie, which is reinforced at Nissan’s engraft in Sunderland, UK, and assembled in Barcelona, has the like routine of modules – 48 – as in Flick and the like 24kWh capacitance, but is packaged otherwise.
The shelling faculty is set low in the fomite nether the loading story and is mounted in a built district for redundant prophylactic tribute in the consequence of an shock. The barrage climbing fabrication besides helps advance the torsional and sidelong harshness of the fomite by 20 percentage and 35 pct severally ended NV200.
With a low center of sombreness, the razz and manipulation levels of e-NV200 are surpassing, eventide by the standards set by the NV200 patch the second torsion livery distinctive of an galvanic fomite agency the battery-powered reading accelerates quicker: its 0-100km/h metre is faster than the 1.5 dCi-powered NV200, with terminal figures confirmed late this yr.
Another drivetrain switch Riff dictated by e-NV200’s belike usance normal is a new braking arrangement with a higher regenerative capability. This takes vantage of the fomite’s distinctive stoppage/startle metropolis impulsive modes, spell Mound Scratch Attend is fitted as measure, property the fomite for two seconds abaft the footbrake is released to earmark polish start.
