Looks like Carlos Ghosn had some busy couple of days at the 2009 edition of the Tokyo Auto Show. The President and CEO of Nissan Motor Company has revealed that the Japanese automaker will produce an electric version of the Nissan NV200 light commercial vehicle, that was recently introduced. This announcement comes at a short time after we told you that the same Carlos Ghosn, the President and CEO of Nissan announced that their luxury division Infiniti will be launching a zero emission luxury vehicle in the near future.
Carlos Ghosn has stated, talking about the Nissan NV200 electric vehicle, that ``This low cost multi purpose vehicle would allow ambulance drivers to drive directly into the hospital, or van and taxi drivers to enter the urban areas where CO2 emissions are restricted``. The President and CEO of Nissan continued by saying that ``It is a flexible, practical vehicle with zero emissions``.
No real information regarding the electric version of the Nissan NV200 was made public, except a teaser sketch of the electric Nissan NV200.
For those of you who do not remember, the Nissan NV200 had its world premiere during the 2009 edition of the Geneva Auto Show back in March. The large commercial van / people carrier will get its power from a 1.6 liter HR16 engine capable of developing 108 horsepower and 153 Nm of torque. The engine is also used on the Nissan Micra, the Nissan Qashqai and the Nissan Note. Diesel lovers have the option of a 1.5 liter dCi unit capable of developing 86 horsepower and 200 Nm of torque.
