    Nissan e-NV200 electric van gets longer-range battery

    While U.S. buyers eagerly await the arrival of the 2018 Nissan Leaf electric car at dealerships early next year, the company has updated another of its electric vehicles as well.

    Unfortunately, it's one that the company has no current plans to sell in North America.

    That's the new longer-range version of the Nissan e-NV200 small delivery van, which has been on sale for several years in Japan and various European countries. ( Including Britain ).

    Here's what it looks like:




    On Monday, Nissan unveiled the updated e-NV200 at its Nissan Futures 3.0 event in Oslo.

    The Norwegian capital may have the highest concentration of electric cars of any city in the world, given the strong financial incentives to buy them.

    Norway expects to end sales of cars with combustion engines by 2025, and appears to be well on its way to that goal.

    Europe, meanwhile, is expected to be at the forefront of rapid growth in electric trucks of all sizes and classes over the next decade.

    The news on the electrifying of road vehicles is coming hard and fast at the moment and as these news items come in I will ensure that you all know what is happening.

    That's a really nice looking Nissan electric van.

    I am sure that if Zathrus was to put a charger at his work-base he might save a lot of money by going electric.

    I am sure my good pal Papa, would support me in that.

    What kind of mileage do you get with you're Nissan Leaf Papa.

    The Kangoo ZE electric van is quite smart too.

    Here is a photo of it.

    Thanks for the post just for me Paps. So kind.

    I am seriously thinking about getting an electric van, but now that you have shown me the Kangoo ZE I don't know which way to jump

    Maybe I will wait until a bigger electric van is available as the two you have shown me are a bit too small for all of my ladders.

    Of course if you need to carry a lot of long ladders on top of you're work van then the likes of a Transit or similar would be best. The thing is that I do not know of any electric vans that are "Transit" sized.

    Maybe something will come out of the latest EV productions as many more companies might want to save money by the use of the larger electric vans

    I get slightly over one hundred miles with a three pound charge using my home charger and that is a great saving on diesel and petrol.

    You must love being able to drive by filling stations and seeing what is happening with diesel and petrol prices.

    I would too if I could afford an electric car.

    Maybe I will just wait until more of them become available as second hand.

    Although there are to be many EV vans of Transit sized and bigger in years to come I am sure that although Ford are to introduce electric vans of all sizes, at the moment the only Transit-sized electric van is the hybrid model shown HERE.
