New e-NV200 XL expands Nissan’s electric van family

Sounds like it should be the name of Elon Musk's next child, but really it's just a bigger version of Nissan’s electric van

Nissan has expanded its current range of electric van models with the introduction of a new e-NV200 XL Voltia model.

A local conversion of the existing e-NV200 mid-size van, the XL version expands on the standard model’s load space by 90%. It gives businesses the ability to carry larger loads and complete fewer trips. Standing room inside makes loading and unloading easier, too.

Underneath, the electric van utilises a 40kWh battery and on-board rapid charger, which should help it achieve close to the standard e-NV200’s range of up to 187 miles on a single charge.

Manuel Burdiel, general manager Europe, LCV sales and business development at Nissan, said: “Despite tougher emissions standards and restricted access in cities, demand for urban last-mile delivery isn’t slowing down. Businesses – large and small – need to remain competitive and find a solution to optimise their operations.”

As well as an optimised turning circle which should help when driving in urban environments, the e-NV200 XL Voltia packs regenerative braking technology to help top up the batteries when on the move.

The Nissan e-NV200 has already proved popular since its introduction in 2014, with 42,000 units sold since then. This latest model will be professionally converted by West Midlands-based Bevan Group, with prices for the electric van announced later.
