2012 NAIAS: Nissan e-NV200 Concept


Nissan's e-NV200 concept is an all-electric version of the NV200, a small, front-wheel-drive commercial van. Compared to the four-cylinder NV200, e-NV200 concept is gussied up with styling and interior cues similar to the electric Nissan Leaf. This concept’s electric innards are also borrowed from the Leaf and give the e-NV200 a similar range, Nissan says.

The e-NV200 Concept is mainly targeted toward businesses, but Nissan also hopes families and private users will take interest. The concept’s interior looks ready for hauling neighbors and hardware supplies with its Leaf-like color tones, pair of glass roof panels and monitoring screens.

Nissan retained the current NV200’s payload and cargo space with the e-NV200. The van’s global specifications rate payload at 1,700 pounds and roughly 145 cubic feet of cargo space, which is similar to most minivans. Even with the large cargo capacity, the overall length is only about 5 inches longer than the Nissan Leaf hatchback, though it’s considerably taller.

this is NYC's new taxi, well sans electric only drivetrain. It isn't so much on the looks (dare I say like most Nissan's{I do like the Maxima}) but is will be highly functional and serve the taxi market well. I had yet to see an interior cargo pic and it looks cavernous back there.

While I'm no fan of the exterior, the interior seems to be surprisingly 'not' concept. Perhaps we're getting a close-to-production look at real interior styling cues? I would hope the outside would change a bit before production but to each his own

Needs to be about a foot longer. Doesn't look like there would be much cargo space if there was a 3rd row of seats. Just estimating from the picture, looks like around 4 feet of cargo space, figure on 32 inches for a 3rd row, that leaves 16 inches of cargo space. As it is, it would make a good taxi or airport shuttle, but to make it in suburbia, it needs a 3rd row with some cargo space.

hats off to Nissan for taking the risk to build an electric Van/Cargo Van. Its something that is highly useful for a city based area!!!

Now hopefully it sells well, so they can put the I4 diesel in the Titan :)

It is ugly but looks like it has decent interior space. It looks like a cross between a Prius and a Nissan Cube.
