Nissan has revealed costs for its new e-NV200 van, which costs from £13,393. Besides the lower-than-expected price, Nissan is declaring the e-NV200 will have running costs a simple fraction of a routine diesel-powered van’s. The e-NV200 van likewise previews a new all-electric taxi style which Nissan is preparing to replace London’s traditional black cabs from 2015.

The headline £13,393 figure is for the entry-level Nissan e-NV200 Acenta van, when gotten with a lease bundle for the battery. The outright on-the-road cost is £16,562.20, including the £8000 UK government grant applicable to all plug-in vans offered here. The electric van is exempt from the London Congestion fee as well as annual road tax. The e-NV200 is likewise offered as a five-seater ‘combi’ model, which qualifies for a £5000 electric cars and truck grant.
Add those benefits to the fuel cost savings (Nissan aims a decrease in running costs of £2500 a year, with servicing costs falling £575) as well as the e-NV200 might expense as bit as two pence per mile to run, according to Nissan’s own bullish figures. The figures are based around a four-year ownership period fancying 9375 miles a year. Meanwhile, a battery rental bundle will set you back between £61 as well as £109 per month, depending upon annual mileage.
The top-grade designs are Tekna fast plus spec, costing £19,324 for the e-NV200 van as well as £26,309 for the five-seater. High-spec designs get a fast-charging set which reduces the recharge time from four hours to 80 per cent charged in 30 minutes. All versions get a common rear-view cam as well as power-folding mirrors for a somewhat less stressful city existence.
Nissan is readying a seven-seater taxi version with a lot more vintage styling tweaks to serve as a zero-emission London cab, with costs for that design yet to be announced.
Under the e-NV200’s van body lie the electric workings of Nissan’s leaf hatchback, the world’s very popular all-electric car. The van’s declared variety is 105 miles, as well as it has a top speed of 75mph. Not one for the white van guy tailgaters out there, it seems.
