The Nissan e-NV200 is the market leader for those wanting an all-electric van and their latest offering is very good indeed. It’s larger than its predecessor and has more range – but the competition is getting stiffer and the new e-NV200 might be found lacking (particularly when the Volkswagen e-Crafter is unveiled). Despite this there’s still a lot to like and it is a great van for delivering around town. Out on the open road, the e-NV200 isn’t as refined or as comfortable to drive when in towns and cities.
It’s the replacement for the aging Primastar but the Nissan NV300 is competing in a keenly fought segment. Worst of all, most of its better rivals are essentially the mechanically same van such as the Renault Trafic, the Fiat Talento and the Vauxhall Vivaro. While the exterior styling makes it look a tad different and there’s some extra kit, the biggest attraction is a five years or 100,000 mile warranty to attract buyers. It’s much better than the Primastar and Nissan has effectively plugged a gap in its commercial van line-up so potential buyers should keep watching for promotions which help shift sales.
