Nissan NV200 at Nissan Kicks EV Tests Into High Gear

From July 2011, Nissan launches a global proving test program for their compact electric commercial vehicle NV200.

The tests will begin in Japan, with Japan Post Service. They will be provided with a NV200 to carry out postal collection and delivery tasks for approximately two months in the city of Yokohama. This way the car will be tested in real world condition and in the hands of the end users, not just engineers and technicians. Later on there will be similar tests in Europe as well.

NV200 EV testing is also important because the car has been chosen as the next generation New York taxi. It is in fact a global model. The car has been present in JDM and European markets since 2009. The van has also won many awards.

“The role that can be played by zero emissions vehicles in promoting a balance between economic growth and environmental protection in the realm of logistics is large” said 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”.
