Nissan e-NV200 XL Voltia electric van revealed

New ‘extra-large’ Voltia electric van is 90% bigger than the Nissan e-NV200 on which it's based

This is the new Nissan e-NV200 XL Voltia. Based on the existing e-NV200 electric van, the maker claims it’s 90% bigger inside than the conventional model, despite no increase in the wheelbase. Prices start from £29,955 plus VAT.

The extra space comes courtesy of an aftermarket conversion, which adds greater height and a longer rear overhang. The work is carried out by the Bevan Group, based in the West Midlands, and increases the e-NV200’s loadspace from 4.2m³ to 8m³.

Customers can either liaise directly with the Bevan Group, or access the service through their local Nissan dealer. The conversion can be carried out on existing examples, too, as it doesn't affect the van’s type approval.

The XL Voltia uses the same 40kWh battery as the existing e-NV200 and Nissan Leaf, and benefits from rapid charging via the standard-fit CHAdeMO charger. This allows the van to charge from 20-80% in less than an hour, while an overnight wallbox charge will take seven hours 30 minutes.

Nissan claims the e-NV200’s electric range is unaffected; the standard version will do between 124 and 187 miles on a charge. Realistically, a slight reduction in day-to-day driving range can be expected, especially if the van is fully loaded.

Nissan says the conversion “allows businesses to complete fewer trips on each delivery round, allowing them to streamline operations and save time”. A favourite for last-mile deliveries, the e-NV200 emits no CO2 and qualifies for free entry to all current low-emission zones.

Elsewhere, the Nissan e-NV200 is unchanged, meaning the same standard kit list and the same access to a range of online services through the NissanConnect EV app. This allows owners to view things like charge status, as well as information on energy use.

Prices for the conversion start from £9,950 plus VAT; completed vehicles cost from £29,955 in entry-level Visia spec. A top-of-the-range Tekna model costs £32,615, including automatic lights and wipers, plus built-in sat nav.
