Nissan e-NV200 Combi running costs
The Nissan e-NV200 Combi is one of the cheapest electric seven-seaters on sale and its electric powertrain promises minuscule running costs
Nissan e-NV200 Combi prices start at just under £30,000 for the five-seat version, with the seven-seater costing about £700 more. The latter is one of the cheapest electric seven-seaters currently on sale, costing around a third of seven-seat versions of the Tesla Model S and Model X. The five-seat e-NV200 is priced similarly to the Renault Kangoo Z.E. Maxi Crew, although that model is a more utilitarian choice than the Nissan. While the Nissan e-NV200 electric van is eligible for a Plug-in Van Grant, the Combi MPV version only qualifies for the passenger-car grant. All e-NV200 Combi models are road-tax-exempt. The other benefit of this electric MPV is exemption from the London Congestion Charge until 2025.
Nissan e-NV200 Combi insurance group
The e-NV200 Combi sits in insurance group 22. That’s higher than ratings for the Nissan Leaf, due in part to the Combi lacking the latest safety technology.
Nissan offers its five-year/100,000-mile warranty on the e-NV200, while the electric components are covered for the same time period, but limited to a total distance of 60,000 miles. Nissan also offers breakdown cover for five years/100,000 miles. On top of that, the car's battery is guaranteed against loss of capacity (where it doesn’t charge up higher than nine bars out of 12 on the display) for eight years/100,000 miles.
Nissan’s network of dealers is set up to handle aftersales care of electric models, and service plans are handled by dealers, rather than having a countrywide service scheme.
