The innovative Nissan e-NV200 Concept makes its national debut today at the 2012 Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto. Based on the popular Nissan NV200 multi-usage vehicle, which is available in Japan, Europe and China, the Nissan e-NV200 Concept previews a near-future production version of a full electric vehicle. It is designed to provide businesses or families with flexible, roomy interior space, while achieving a dramatic CO2 footprint reduction.

"The Nissan e-NV200 serves as further evidence of Nissan's leadership position in the zero-emission automotive industry," said Hideto Murakami, corporate vice president, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. "As a potential mass production vehicle, the Nissan e-NV200 Concept would also provide a reduction in operating costs compared to current internal combustion engine vehicles."

The Nissan e-NV200 Concept combines a driving range similar to the Nissan LEAF with payload and cargo space similar to the current NV200. The production version would be targeted mainly at businesses, but also at private users and families in major regions.

The Nissan e-NV200 Concept exterior starts with a foundation of a production Nissan NV200, then adds strong visual cues from the breakthrough Nissan LEAF EV. The wide hood is accented by a large central charging port door and the blue–accented Nissan badge.
