e-nv200

Post by mikedufty » Tue, 14 Aug 2018, 13:18

First sighting of the grey import Nissan e-nv200 van on carsales

5000km, $29000. I wonder if it is actually complianced yet. Surprised they would let the rear seat with lap-only belts through.

One of the attached photos shows the rear retractable seat belt for the outer seats so just like any other rear seat belt set up by the look of it. 170km range is still a bit light on but the 122km/h top speed is fine. I wonder if a battery upgrade would be possible to increase the range, it would make a great work delivery van with the rear seat removed or folded down and double as a family drive car on week ends. It appears to be NSW compliant so not an issue getting the rego transferred to SA but not too sure about the other states

You are right, normal seatbelts. Makes it quite appealing if it can take 5 passengers when needed.
I suspect the range is less than 170. One review says 80 miles range indicated, which would be about 130km.

It would need around double that range to be of much use for us out here in the sticks at Mannum so we could use it as a utility type vehicle for the business to travel to Adelaide and back.
They mention a 7 hr recharge time to get another 130km, I'm hoping there would be a faster charging option available or it would be a real long trip back here from Sydney :lol:

Nissan battery packs are very easy to retro-fit with new battery cells. Sounds like a project.

To the best of my knowledge, nobody has yet hacked the firmware to make the car recognize more battery capacity. Is anyone aware of anything different ?

Heh. You have to admire those guys that can hack firmware ;) . He made it sounds pretty easy, too. Something like "Yeah, yesterday I had to hack it a bit to change this byte in this CAN packet, and now here it is working, showing 432 km range".

With that sort of range even under their "Worst case scenario" in the follow up video, 290km, we could get from Mannum to Adelaide and back on a charge with a load. This might be the next workshop vehicle once the taxi Prius dies.
