Sounds like detailed specs on the "production-ready" van may be only a few weeks away.

Anyone guessing that the drivetrain/battery pack will be anything other than standard LEAF?

Nissan to reveal production-ready e-NV200

Nissan will make the production-ready debut of its e-NV200 commercial vehicle at the Geneva Motor Show as the brand prepares to launch the model by 2015.

That’s not the only treat the brand will have in store for the show next month, there will also be the European debut of the BladeGlider; Nissan’s jet-fighter shaped concept vehicle which features an extremely aerodyanmic shape, seats for three occupants and a LEAF-based drivetrain.

Nissan E-NV200 concept

Like the BladeGlider, the e-NV200, which will available as both a passenger and commercial vehicle, features a drivetrain based on the LEAF, likely to give it a range of around 100 miles per charge. Already on trial with fleets in the UK, including with British Gas, the brand aims to launch a taxi version of the e-NV200 by 2015 and a five-seat people carrier and commercial vehicle by May this year...

Here is a good article on the Geneva production ready debut in 2 weeks at insideevs.com

http://insideevs.com/production-nissan- ... le-in-may/

It sounds like Japan and a few places in Europe get it first and US is TBD. They will have a cargo and a passenger van. No plan for 3 rows of seats yet. It would be great to have this with a 150 mile range but it sounds like it will have 70 like the leaf.

Depending on the parameters this could potentially be very strong with fleet operators where decisions are made on a dollars and cents basis, unlike consumers where you get into discussions about styling or can you drive it from NY to LA.

This is the best guess by many of the bloggers. I hope they surprise us with better range. Well have to wait 2 weeks to find out.

the only time "LEAF" is mentioned is because its using a drivetrain based on the LEAF. iow; its electric. how anyone could get more out of that is beyond me.

They are not taking into account that it will have the new hot battery. And most of these bloggers don't even know about the hot battery.

nope... as member of "LAB" (L is LEAF) the NV 200 got an occasional mention but that was about all. our purpose is more towards marketing than any kind of technical side so specs are for the most part out of the discussion.

but this illustrates the problems of the media. the article states to expect "100 miles" now is this from Nissan or is it simply lazy journalism that googled "LEAF range" and came up with a link to advertising from 2010?

I suspect the latter.

otherwise; we all need to take a reality pill. it would be hard for me to imagine a vehicle expected to be released in the US in 2015/16 would have the same specs as a 2011 LEAF when even the 2013's are being widely reported to have incremental range boosts.

now is this range boost simply a new round of starry eyed owners? yes, in some cases but now we are getting 2nd time LEAFers reporting the same thing. Could be SW tricks that enhances range for certain types of driving like when urban driving is mixed in since Tony's tests pretty states a straight freeway drive appears to have had no improvement.

But either way; I think it would be a mistake to take the tact that Nissan is not constantly moving forward
