Nissan - Electric Vehicles Gaining Momentum and Advocate

Nissan is introducing another fully electric vehicle next year, according to an announcement by the company’s management. The upcoming model would be a delivery van of the NV200 model, but it is going to run on electric power only. With the rising concerns over environmental pollution and fuel shortages, auto makers are now introducing new models that are hybrid or completely electric to provide diversity in the nature of automobiles. These models are not very popular at the moment, but with the passage of time their acceptance is likely to increase.

Nissan is hopeful to have a good response for the new model, which is going to provide the desired performance according to the industry standards. “The e-NV200 represents a genuine breakthrough in commercial vehicles. The new model will offer all the spaciousness, versatility and practicality of a traditionally powered compact van, but with zero CO2 emission at the point of use and also provide an outstanding driving experience that is unique to EV’s,” Nissan’s executive vice-president, Andy Palmer, claimed in a statement, as reported on

The new vehicle would be assembled in the company’s plant in Barcelona, Spain. Nissan aims to introduce the electric vehicles based on the latest technology and become one of the leaders in the auto industry. The future trend is going to move towards electric cars and therefore the competition is going to depend on the ability to produce electric vehicles according to the changing demands.

Electric vehicles might get more popular than the commercial vehicles, as performance measures for them are different from cars and other vehicles meant to travel long distances. Commercial trucks or delivery vans have to be driven within cities with frequent stops, so their performance standards do not focus on speed too much. Nissan is going to try to cater to this market with the new electric delivery van.

Nissan has made a huge investment for the new model and is carrying out the assessments in order to have a clear signal before moving ahead. The vehicle is being manufactured mainly for commercial purposes, but can also be acquired for personal use. The features offer a comfortable drive for families too.

"Crucially, it will also offer class-leading running and maintenance costs, which makes it an exceptionally attractive proposition to both businesses and families," Andy Palmer said about the electric model, as reported by Yahoo Finance.
