Road Test Blocks
The eNV200 is the second high profile electric van to hit the UK market, after Renault launched the Kangoo ZE in 2011.
Nissan claims that, despite the alliance with the French firm that has seen them share platforms in the past, there is relatively little technological crossover, and that the eNV200 is in fact closely related to the Leaf.
The lack of range and the fact electric doesn’t have a proven history will deny the eNV200 of a mainstream breakthrough for the time being. However, this is a really attractive option for those operating in and around the city with a consistently low range.
Predicted to hit the market later in the year, it’ll be interesting to see just how many van operators the Nissan sales and marketing team can convince that, as they so often claimed during the launch, “Electric is Now”.
