Nissan e-NV200 van (2014-2022) range, battery & charging

As it uses the same technology as the Leaf, the Nissan e-NV200 has a reasonably adequate range and charging capacity

The Nissan e-NV200 has benefited from Nissan’s battery development, and uses the same 40kWh battery pack as the latest Leaf. This has been slotted under the e-NV200’s load area, and as it takes up the same amount of space as the smaller battery, the van’s load volume and payload haven’t been affected.

That battery helps the e-NV200 achieve a maximum claimed range of 187 miles. That’s around 15 miles more than the claimed range of the Renault Kangoo Z.E. and double that of the Citroen Berlingo Electric and Peugeot Partner Electric.

Of course, in real-world driving you’re unlikely to get near the claimed maximum. But an everyday range of around 120 miles is easily achievable without having to resort to any kind of energy-saving driving techniques.

Nissan e-NV200 range

Nissan quotes a range of 187 miles, achieved under the WLTP testing procedure's 'city cycle', which favours low-speed driving. The 'combined cycle' returns a range of 124 miles. The latter figure is a far more realistic target to aim for, and is easily achievable in everyday driving without having to resort to economical driving techniques.

Acenta vans and above feature battery heating and cooling to help the power pack deliver a more consistent current. Adding the optional Heat Pack allows you to pre-condition the cabin with warm or cold air before you set off, so the battery is solely used to drive, rather than for getting the interior up to temperature.

Charge time

Nissan supplies two charging cables with the e-NV200: a three-pin cable and a seven-pin cable. Using the three-pin cable, a flat battery can be recharged in just over 12 hours from the mains, but home charging via a wallbox takes a more acceptable seven hours.

If you’re out and about, the Acenta and Tekna versions come with a CHAdeMO socket that allows rapid charging from public charge points. This can add 80% charge to the battery in around 45 minutes, conditions permitting.

Battery warranty

Nissan covers the battery for eight years and 100,000 miles. In this period, if the battery capacity dips below nine bars (out of 12) when recharging, Nissan will replace it free of charge. In addition, the e-NV200 is covered by a five-year/60,000-mile guarantee for its mechanical and electrical components. There’s also a 12-year anti-corrosion warranty.
