Electric light commercial Nissan to undergo real-world evaluation

A journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step. Nissan is providing one electric-powered NV200 light commercial vehicle to the Japanese postal service for evaluation starting this month. This initial study is currently slated to last about two months. Future tests will be scheduled in Japan and Europe using other real-world business users to evaluate the vehicle in those environments.

According to Nissan Corporate Vice President Hideto Murakami, responsible for the Global LCV Business Unit, “We will certainly reflect the customer feedback gained from these proving tests in our future product development, and I expect that our commercial electric vehicles based on the NV200 will contribute to our customers’ business and to the development of a sustainable society.”

NV200 (internal combustion engine (ICE) version) was recently selected as the next generation New York City Taxi.
