These new models demonstrate the expansive potential in variety and performance for the Nissan NV200.
This year’s CV Show will be hosted at the NEC Arena between the 9 and 11 April 2013. The event will mark the UK debut appearance for the Nissan e-NV200, which is the first purely electric-driven van from Nissan.
The Nissan e-NV200 has already received praise from fleet operators across Europe for its zero CO2 emissions output, driving comfort and generous carrying capacity and payload.
As fuel prices continue on the rise, one of the biggest benefits owners of the e-NV200 will enjoy will be its long term cost savings that can be made, by simply charging the van with electricity rather than filling it up with diesel.
The powertrain of the e-NV200 is based on that used for Nissan’s all-electric family hatchback, the Leaf, which is getting major updates for 2013.
The Nissan e-NV200 features a lithium ion battery and 80kW AC motor capable of generating 280Nm of torque.
Recharging the van can also take as little as 30 minutes to reach an 80 per cent capacity at a quick charge station.
The Nissan e-NV200 is anticipated for release to markets including the UK in 2014.
At the 2013 CV Show the e-NV200 will be presented alongside another new van for the range, the NV200 London Taxi. It is based on the company’s multi-purpose NV200 compact van and redesigned to fully comply with the host of TfL Taxi Conditions of Fitness.
As well as seating to comfortably accommodate five passengers, the NV200 Taxi has also been modified to accommodate a wheel chair passenger and achieve a 25ft turning-circle, which is a legal requirement for all Hackney Carriages.
These significant and exciting new models for Nissan’s commercial vehicle range will be joined by other vans in the existing line-up. Other vans on display by Nissan at this year’s CV Show will include the Nissan Cabstar and the Nissan NV400.
Models from the latest NV200 range on sale will also be present at the 2013 CV Show, including the standard NV200 plus the NV200 Fridge van.
Models from the latest Nissan NV200 range are available to UK motorists now from Perrys Nissan Dealership in Blackburn.
