Nissan launches seven seat e-NV200

Thanks to growing requests from companies and fleets alike, Nissan has announced it is bringing forward the introduction of the latest iteration in its electric vehicle line-up – a seven seat version of the all-electric e-NV200.

Since its inception, a seven seat version of the revolutionary van has always been part of Nissan’s plans, fulfilling an unmet need for an electric vehicle that can move a larger number of people. From taxi fleets to shuttle services and even to large families, the seven seat e-NV200 Evalia offers a zero-emission solution.

Nissan Europe’s director of electric vehicles, Jean-Pierre Diernaz explains the introduction, commenting: "We have always planned to offer a higher-seating capacity version of the Nissan e-NV200. Marketplace demand has meant we have moved this introduction forward by several months to satisfy this need.

"Nissan has had requests from taxi companies, VIP transfer services, hotels and private motorists who are interested in buying this uniquely flexible and capable vehicle."

The seven seat version of the e-NV200 is configured with two seats in the front, three in the middle and two in the rear. Both the second and third rows can be folded to allow for larger quantities of luggage to be carried, making the new variant a hugely flexible vehicle for commercial or private use.

The second row rolls forward and the third row folds to the sides to open up an enormous 2.94 cubic metres of cargo capacity. With all three rows in place, the luggage capacity is 443 litres under the tonneau cover, and up to an impressive 870 litres when measured to the roof line, allowing the possibility to carry seven people and a large volume of luggage.

To increase passenger comfort the seven seat passenger version comes equipped with additional rear air conditioning to ensure a more even temperature through the cabin, even for those in the third row of seating.

The new model is available with the CHAdeMO quick charging system, which gives the access to the most widely installed rapid charging system in Europe today with over 1,500 accessible points. The quick charging option allows businesses or drivers to extend journeys or do multiple short journeys in a day with a quick top up.

The Nissan e-NV200 7-seat Combi is available to order from April.
