The Nissan e-NV200 is the largest electric van available, based on a mixture of parts from the Nissan Leaf passenger car and the NV200 van. It's a van that's mainly intended for use on congested city streets. The responsive electric motor and single-speed gearbox make the e-NV200 a lot easier to drive than the diesel model, as well as cheaper to run, the e-NV200 is available as a five-seater Combi passenger car. The redesigned nose for the electric version adds 16 cm to the van's overall length, and it's a bit wider as well and is such a earily quiet vehicle. The new front end gets the charging point under the badge, LED strips in the lights and larger 15-inch wheels. An all-electric London taxi based on the e-NV200 will soon appear on the streets of the capital, with a few key changes over the commercial version. MPG and Running Costs 4.7 The main benefit of buying an electric van will be the running costs - the e-NV200 is likely to save owners a lot of money on short journeys. Nissan claims it could cost as little as two pence per mile to run. As with any electric vehicle, though, the range could deter potential buyers of the van. While the 106-mile range is likely to be plenty for drivers who spend most of the day in a local area, longer cross-country trips will be a concern. It takes 8 hours to charge, or 4 hours with a higher-capacity charge point. A rapid charger is also available - this can take the batteries to 80 per cent in just 30 minutes, and is perfect for loading and unloading at a stop with a charge point. A big plus for the e-NV200 is that it's exempt from the London Congestion Charge, and benefits from free VED. Many charging points across the country are free to use, as well. Load Space and Practicality 4.2 For a compact van, the e-NV200 offers a lot of load space: like the diesel NV200 it has 4.2 cubic metres of volume in the rear, with a load bay of 2.04 metres. With the optional folding passenger seat that extends to 2.8 metres, and the 1.22-metre width at its narrowest point means the load bay can swallow two Europallets. The e-NV200 beats its traditionally-powered sister when it comes to payload, at 770kg, and despite the batteries being stored in the floor the loading height is just 524mm. Access is good, with a sliding door on each side, plus there's the option of double doors at the rear or a lifting tailgate. Amazing lease deals on the env200
