Fancy an Eco-Friendly Overlanding Trip Through the Alps? So Would Nissan.

Since it debuted its 7-seater e-van in the U.K. in 2015, American van conversionists have been keen to get their hands on Nissan’s e-NV200. Now with a new and improved 40-kWh battery, which will give the van a range of 173 miles, the 2021 European model is becoming even more appealing to overland travelers.

To even further whet the appetite of overlanders, Nissan just revealed the e-NV200 Winter Camper Concept vehicle, complete with a factory-supported pop-up tent. Insulated glass windows and a 220-volt power pack charged by a roof-mounted solar panel are in place to keep things powered up and cozy on the inside.

Nissan made efficient use of the cargo van’s spacious interior with folding beds, a table, and a compact kitchen complete with a small refrigerator. Increased ground clearance and premium off-road tires would make navigating snowdrifts a breeze. Given that the e-NV200 battery will be capable of recharging to 80% in 60 minutes or less, it would give the overlanders inside just enough time to brew a couple of mugs of hot cocoa and figure out which ski resort to head in the direction of next.

Dmitry Busurkin, Corporate Sales & LCV General Manager, Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan Europe says of the e-NV200 Winter Camper Concept vehicle, “Imbued with the essence of adventure and thrilling electrified power, the Nissan e-NV200 Winter Camper concept van is an expression of the future of zero-emissions mobility. This vision, and the innovative set of accessories available with the standard e-NV200 models, will get drivers and outdoor enthusiasts alike excited for the adventures we’re all craving in the future.”
