Electric Nissan e-NV200 Is The Van Of Choice, If You Can Handle The Range Anxiety

On paper, Nissan’s electric version of the NV200 van is the answer to many things.

The e-NV200 uses Nissan Leaf’s electric powertrain for zero emissions, combining them with the immense practicality of its van bodystyle.

Powered by a 107hp electric motor combined with a 24kWh lithium-ion battery pack, the Nissan e-NV200 delivers a theoretical driving range of 105 miles which sounds pretty decent for the everyday commute.

Combine this with the inherent roominess of the normal NV200 and what you have is a unique proposition in the market.

But, as ever with today’s all-electric vehicles, the real-life driving range is closer to 70 miles, as reported by Carbuyer in their review, which never really frees the driver from the range-anxiety effect, while most regular fossil fuel-burning MPVs have the e-NV200 beaten for clever storage solutions.

Overall, it’s a unique offering in the market right now and if you want a seven-seater all-electric vehicle in that price bracket, the Nissan e-NV200 is really your only choice.
