Nissan has revealed a larger version of its all-electric e-NV200 panel van called the e-NV200XL.
The new, upsized model is a collaboration between Nissan and European engineering firm Voltia and is due to go on sale in the UK later this year.
It’s powered by the same electric drivetrain as the standard e-NV200 van, using a front-mounted 108bhp electric motor and a 40kWh lithium-ion battery pack.
The vehicle’s range from a full charge has not been revealed but is expected to be below the standard model’s range of 124 miles. A full charge can be achieved from a commercially available 50kW DC fast-charger in less than an hour or via a domestic 7kW wallbox unit, which will take around eight hours.
The XL Voltia features a box extension that expands the length and height of the standard e-NV200’s load bay by around 50cm in each dimension. As a result, it boasts a maximum storage volume of eight cubic metres, which is 90 per cent larger than the standard model.
Due to the added weight of the conversion, the XL Voltia’s maximum payload is around 120kg less than the standard e-NV200, at 580kg, but its 1.22-metre wide load bay remains unchanged, meaning it can still transport two Euro pallets.
When it does reach UK shores, the extended panel van will be available for purchase either directly from an approved Nissan dealer, or as an aftermarket conversion from the West Midlands-based specialist Bevan Group.
