The 2018 Nissan e-NV200 will get a 40 kWh battery
Finally, the Nissan electric van is getting more range next year.
Currently, the Nissan e-NV200 still has the same 24 kWh battery pack made by AESC that the first generation Nissan Leaf and Renault Kangoo ZE also had.
The interesting thing is that now the Renault Kangoo ZE has a 33 kWh battery pack made with LG Chem battery cells, while both Nissan Leaf and Nissan e-NV200 maintain AESC as the battery cell supplier and will have the battery pack capacity boosted to 40 kWh. This shows us that the AESC battery cells are more energy dense than the ones made by LG Chem.
Furthermore, the 40 kWh battery means that the Nissan e-NV200 will get its current NEDC range increased from 170 km (106 miles) to around 283 km (176 miles). As a curiosity, the more efficient 2018 Nissan Leaf will get 378 km (235 miles) of NEDC range from the same battery...

The Nissan e-NV200 now offers a 60% extended range of up to 280 km NEDC* with unchanged cargo capacity and single shift transmission that makes driving easier and safer.
Crucially, the e-NV200 can help make 100% electric last mile deliveries achievable for business and professional drivers everywhere. With customers now able to drive more than 100 km further on a single charge compared to the previous generation e-NV200 fitted with 24kWh battery.
Gareth Dunsmore, Director, Electric Vehicles, Nissan Europe, commented: “With its longer range and optimal exterior dimensions and cargo capacity, the upgraded 40kWh e-NV200 is the perfect last mile solution for urban deliveries and collections. Given the huge impact that professional drivers have on air quality and traffic congestion, especially in city centres, helping cut the level of CO2 emissions they create is a vital part of creating a more sustainable future.”
