Nissan has unveiled a new electric “winter camper” van concept based on its e-NV200 electric van.
Nissan e-NV200 electric van
While Nissan’s electrification effort is mostly known through the Leaf electric car, the Japanese automaker also sells the e-NV200 electric van in some markets.
The e-NV200 got an upgrade in 2018 with a new 40 kWh battery pack for more range, but in a van form-factor, we are talking about a range of only 124 miles (~200 km) between charges based on the WLTP combined cycle.

Now, Nissan has unveiled an electric “winter camper” concept based on the electric van:
“Designed to maximize excitement while minimizing environmental impact, the e-NV200 Winter Camper combines the thrill of electric driving with the spirit of the wild. With a host of bespoke driving and lifestyle features, it’s primed to tackle tough terrains.”
They released a quick video of the concept:
The vehicle serves more as a showcase of some accessories that Nissan sells for the van, but they also made a few modifications, like “premium off-road tires and increased ride height provide optimum traction and ground clearance in mud or snow,” as well as twin spotlights mounted on a reinforced steel bar at the front ensure maximum visibility.”
In Europe, the automaker also makes a “custom Nissan Camper Technology Luxury Kit” available:
“The custom Nissan Camper Technology Luxury Kit – available in Europe for the standard e-NV200 van and e-NV200 Evalia passenger van – maximizes comfort and versatility for self-sufficient living. Solar panels on the roof can recharge the onboard 220-volt power pack. The integrated kitchen, refrigerator, folding beds and insulated glass make life on the open road possible in any environment.”
The concept follows a camper version of its electric van that Nissan started selling in Spain a few years ago.
