Nissan will initially offer the e-NV200 in van and five-seat people carrier variants. Using the Leaf's electric motor and battery pack will grant it around 107bhp and 207lb ft, and the range has previously been claimed to be equivalent to the Leaf's - around 80 miles in normal real-world conditions.
Charging is also similar to the Leaf, with the e-NV200 reputedly being capable of an 80 per cent charge in less than 30 minutes when connected to a suitable charging point.
Despite the addition of the battery pack, the e-NV200's load bay and maximum payload rating is reputed to be unchanged. Real-world tests of the van have long been underway, with both FedEx and the Japan Post Service trialling the all-electric van.
