Nissan has just announced the production of Nissan electric van in Barcelona which is set to start in 2013. The 100% electric e-NV200 van is Nissan‘s second all-electric vehicle allocated to Barcelona Plant with a major project investment of €100 million, according to its press release on May 23, 2012.
The new model e-NV200 was said to be based on the existing NV200 that is currently produced at the plant. The company said that it is expected to create more than 700 new jobs at the plant and its Spanish suppliers.
“e-NV200 represents a genuine breakthrough in commercial vehicles and further underlines Nissan’s leadership within the electric vehicle segment. The new model will offer all the spaciousness, versatility and practicality of a traditionally powered compact van, but with zero CO2 emission at the point of use and also provide an outstanding driving experience that is unique to EV’s.” Andy Palmer, Nissan Executive Vice President was quoted saying in their press release.
Furthermore, the electric vehicle e-NV200 was said to be a multi-use vehicle that will “provide both businesses and families with functional and roomy interior space and will retain the host of innovative and practical features of the current NV200 line up combined with the most advanced powertrain components of the Nissan LEAF.”
