Nissan to Begin Testing Electric e-NV200 in Japan and Europe

Nissan Motor Company has announced that global proving tests of an electric vehicle (EV) based on the compact commercial vehicle NV200 will begin shortly. For the first phase, the Japan Post Service, based in Tokyo, will carry out a test in Japan. One test vehicle will be provided to carry out postal collection and delivery tasks for approximately two months in the city of Yokohama, Kanagawa prefecture, to evaluate the vehicle’s capabilities under a customer’s normal usage conditions. Later, similar proving tests will be carried in Europe.

“The role that can be played by zero emissions vehicles in promoting a balance between economic growth and environmental protection in the realm of logistics is large”
said Nissan Corporate Vice President Hideto Murakami, responsible for the Global LCV Business Unit. “We will certainly reflect the customer feedback gained from these proving tests in our future product development, and I expect that our commercial electric vehicles based on the NV200 will contribute to our customers’ business and to the development of a sustainable society”.

We’ll remind you that the NV200 was recently chosen as the next generation New York taxi. The NV200 is available in Japan and Europe since 2009 and China and Singapore from 2010, and future launches are planned for the US and India. In total, the NV200 is sold in approximately 40 countries throughout the world, and has received positive feedback from customers for its spacious interior, fuel economy, excellent driving performance, and attractive design.

Nissan is aiming to become the one of the leaders in global zero emissions vehicle sales, and in addition to carrying out the development of electric vehicles, Nissan is also engaged in comprehensive efforts to spread the use of electric vehicles and promote sustainable mobility.
