Nissan turns e-NV200 into country’s first all-electric seven-seat MPV
Nissan has unveiled a seven-seat version of its pure-electric e-NV200 van. Powered by the same electric powertrain that is used in the company’s Leaf passenger car, the e-NV200 seven-seater has a range of 106-miles when fully charged. An 80% charge is reached in 30 minutes. It goes on sale in July, and if you lease the battery and deduct the £5,000 government grant, it will then cost you between £19,895 and £22,255, depending on which model you choose.
The range-topping Evalia trim level will cost you £27,260 if you buy the battery outright. It includes a reversing camera, cruise control, automatic lights and wipers, steering wheel mounted audio controls and privacy glass.
With all seven seats in use, there is 870-litres of capacity in the boot. Fold the second and third rows of seats away, and this increases to a cavernous 2,940-litres.
The e-NV200 seven seater is unchallenged in the market place, with no pure-electric powered alternatives of the Peugeot Partner Tepee or Citroën Berlingo available.
