Nissan has started production of its second all-electric vehicle – the e-NV200 – which will be available as a light commercial van, a passenger vehicle and an electric taxi.
The Nissan plant in Barcelona will be the global production site for the new all-electric vehicle, which will initially be exported to around 20 international markets, including Japan. Just as with the Nissan LEAF introduction, the number of markets will grow after the initial launch, to continue the company’s sustained electric vehicle expansion.
Barcelona will be the first city in the world to introduce the e-NV200 as a 100% electric taxi. In the wake of record levels of air pollution in London and Paris, Nissan hopes that these cities, and others, will follow.
The Nissan LEAF is the world’s best selling electric vehicle, with more than 110,000 customers.
