Nissan has revealed prices and trim levels for its e-NV200 electric van, which goes on sale in July.

The entry-level Acenta van is available from £16,562 as an outright purchase once the Government’s 20% Plug-in-Van-Grant has been subtracted.

Prices step up to £17,429 for the Acenta Rapid, £17,850 for the Acenta Rapid Plus, £18,903 for the Tekna Rapid and peak at £19,325 for the flagship Tekna Rapid Plus.

Nissan is also offering a Flex option, which enables customers to lease the vehicle’s battery from £61 a month for a 36-month period based on 6000 miles a year. This reduces the initial outlay for the base-level van to £13,393 and sees the top of the range model come in at £16,156 with the Government grant included in both cases. All panel van prices exclude VAT.

Prices for the passenger carrying Combi, which include VAT, start at £22,859 as an outright purchase, including the government’s incentive, and rise to £26,309. Under the Flex option the Combi goes from £17,855 to £21,301 plus the monthly battery rental fee of £61.

According to manufacturer the zero-emissions e-NV200 will achieve 105 miles per full battery charge and have running costs of just two pence per mile.

Nissan claimed customers will benefit from fuel savings of £2500 over four years and save £575 in maintenance costs on servicing, parts and wear and tear during the same period.

The E-NV200 is rechargeable overnight using a domestic 16-amp supply, which reduces to four hours if a 32amp supply is used.

It also has a 50kW quick charger that can recharge the battery to 80% in 30 minutes.

British Gas has ordered 100 Nissan e-NV200s for its home-service engineers following a 28-vehicle trial over a six-month period.
