Re: Official Nissan e-NV200 thread

I skimmed bits and pieces of the above video but I did watch the entire video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lNFU5r2e6ZM. He also in this one at ~6:25 talks about something that he says believe is the "same as Leaf" where you can hold down a button on the fob to preheat. Well, that's certainly not available on my Leaf. Perhaps it's that way in some other countries?

Of course since Nissan USA can't seem to be able to get their head out of their *ss, I'm not holding my breath living in the good ole' U S of A!
But I can buy 50 different types of ICE vans or SUVs :roll:
I mean Nissan currently sells a ICE version of the NV-200(I drive one) so they can't blame safety-related issues........
Well... problem is, minivans have been a declining market in the US for over a decade, maybe even two decades.

I hadn't even realized Nissan discontinued the Quest for the US market until I was in a dealer (Quest) shuttle and the driver told me that they had a hard time getting another Quest (I'd previously been in a different Quest the dealer had each time) since they were discontinued.

You can get an idea of US minivan sales by looking up the usual "suspects" at http://www.goodcarbadcar.net/2017/12/no ... le-ranked/ (e.g. Odyssey, Sienna, Pacifica, Caravan, etc.). Couple that w/the battery electric take rate of 0.61% at http://www.hybridcars.com/november-2017-dashboard/, you could imagine that EV minivan sales in the US will likely be pretty tiny. If we add FCA's minivans (Pacific and Grand Caravan) Nov sales, that's 21,745 units. If we multiply that by an amazing 2%, that yields almost 435 units/month.

Also, note the total BEV sales for Nov 2017 (8,440). Compare that to the various segments at https://web.archive.org/web/20171202214 ... sales.html.

And, with 2 or 3 of the strongest EV markets being in California + CA's HOV-lane stickers for BEVs, I doubt many folks will commute using their electric minivans esp. given that e-NV200 will have shorter range than the same battery capacity Leaf. I also don't see that many minivans at my work in the employee parking lot.

The above probably doesn't add up to a good business case for Nissan.

'22 Niro EV
'19 Bolt Premier (bought back by GM)
'13 Leaf SV w/premium (former)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium (lease over)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Re: Official Nissan e-NV200 thread

I'd also like that easy preheat feature :) Looks like it's instead of the FOB mounted charge door release and like our '11/'12 Leafs it has a manual charge door release.
I like how he refers to ICE vehicles as fossil cars :lol: he also likes to refer to the eNV-200 as a plumber and electrician's vehicle, or he as he says, the butt crack crowd ;)

Re: Official Nissan e-NV200 thread

These e=NV200 camper vans looks not surprisingly like a '69 Volkswagen Westfalia camper bus.
Apparently you have to live in Spain to get one :(

Re: Official Nissan e-NV200 thread

I have a Leaf Spy Pro problem with my e-NV200 Evalia. I installed Leaf Spy Lite on my Android phone, and (with the usual amount of trouble to get one which worked) an ELM-type Bluetooth device to plug into the car. Leaf Spy Lite works. The Car Scanner app also works. So I purchased Leaf Spy Pro, installed on the same Android device.

Leaf Spy Pro, though, does not work. It prompts me for the connection to use, seems to think all's well, but shows all zeros or other no-data values for all its displays -- it reads no useful data, not even the same data shown by Leaf Spy Lite. No, I'm not trying to run both at once: I uninstalled Leaf Spy Lite before buying Leaf Spy Pro, just in case they didn't want to run on the same device. Re-installing Lite works fine. Re-starting the phone and clearing Leaf Spy data has not helped.

Is there a troubleshooting guide for the case of Lite working but Pro not working? If so, I'd appreciate a link to it.

This might possibly be that the e-NV200 is not exactly the same as a Leaf, in some way which doesn't bother Leaf Spy Lite much (I tell it I have a 40 kWh LEAF in order to get meaningful numbers for some of the displayed items).

Re: Official Nissan e-NV200 thread

Managed to start leafspy and got confusing results :shock:

SOH - 76%
Ah - 49.72
GID -58,7% (165)
SOC - 76,6%
I dont see dV but as far as I can see it is 20mV, 4V now on 75% SOC

on the other side, Im using 25% of battery for 33km in mixed driving, 2/3 city, 1/3 open road (not highway) = 132km range (10C is outside now)

Car is 2017. 18000km 1 rapid charge and 262 L1/L2

I expected range between 100-160km, so 132 is in the middle, but should I be woried?
