Nissan E-NV200 Concept previews at North American International Auto Show

The Nissan E-NV200 makes its world debut at the 2012 North American International Auto Show.

The Nissan e-NV200 Concept, which makes its world debut at the 2012 North American Auto Show in Detroit, serves as more evidence of Nissan's position in the zero-emission automotive industry. Based on the Nissan NV200 multi-usage vehicle, the Nissan e-NV200 Concept previews a near-future production version of a full electric vehicle designed to provide businesses or families with flexible, roomy interior space, while achieving a dramatic CO2 footprint reduction.

"With its ‘no gas, no tailpipe, no emissions' powertrain, the Nissan e-NV200 Concept combines a quiet, comfortable driving experience with a large, highly versatile, functional interior space within a compact overall body length," said Hideto Murakami, corporate vice president, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. "A potential game changing vehicle in its segment, the battery capacity will support a driving range similar to the Nissan LEAF, while payload and cargo space will offer the same level as the current NV200. The production version would be targeted mainly at businesses, but also at private users or families in major regions."

As a potential mass production vehicle, Nissan e-NV200 Concept would also provide a reduction in operating costs compared to current internal combustion engine vehicles.

"A vehicle like the Nissan e-NV200 Concept would energise the current compact van market in more ways than one - helping improve the quality of urban life and providing a smart financial investment for large and small businesses alike," Murakami added.
