The e-NV200 will provide exceptionally smooth acceleration and quietness while keeping CO2 emissions minimal. The vehicle will also be unique in offering new features such as quick charging as well as an innovative power outlet that enables the driver to plug in at any electric device and work anywhere.

FedEx Express is strongly committed to improving the environmental impact of its global vehicle fleet, making this partnership perfect for both Nissan and FedEx Express. Their goal is to increase fuel efficiency and reduce emissions, already achieving more than 80% of its goal to increase fuel efficiency of its global vehicle fleet 20% by 2020. This partnership with Nissan will help FedEx in developing and managing their electric vehicle fleet in urban environments. It will also support Nissan’s development of innovative technologies for overall industry improvement in efficiency and reduced environmental impact.
