What's he on about I thought ? That can't be right but........before I act all smug I'll check and sure enough.....I paid £40 for an MOT although they are actually exempt.
No need to apologise. To be fair, I wasn’t aware that they closed the loophole in 2015.WOW !! Never knew this.
I read your post and got to the bit :

How weird is that ? Some leftover from milk float days ?

Spoke to Wessex Nissan at Cribbs Causeway today. They said it was possible to upgrade a 24kWh battery to 40 kWh, but they couldn't to it... they said battery was £8,000 and work would be '1000s more'. Given the price of the 40kWh Combi, it may still be the most economical way to upgrade...Hi
I have 2 questions about the e-NV200:
1) Is true that the battery warranty is void if it hasn't been serviced regularly?
2) Is it possible to upgrade the 24 kWh battery in a 2015 model with a 40 kWh battery?
Thanks for your thoughts
Yep I noticed that also (losing load space). I would prefer a straight swap which I think they do according to their website. However I'd be interest in retrofitting myself just can't find where to purchase the battery packs. I'm looking at buying a high mileage e-nv200 off a mate but keen to replace 24kwh battery to 40kwh at least - as suggested by OPMuxsan are fitting the battery modules from VW GTE in addition to the existing Nissan battery pack. The downside is that you lose a small amount of space in the load area and a more significant part of the load carrying capacity. They will also fit a larger capacity Nissan pack but have some significant reservations about these.
I'd love one of these. Hmm £5k. Once I'm over 100miles it makes the combi so much more useful for me.
Sounds promising. Hopefully the extra battery will not overheat. The weight is an issue, Compared to changing the cells to 40 kWh.Muxsan now do an underfloor secondary battery:
"Here's our prototype e-NV200 17.6kWh under-body battery! This proto took 2 very long days to install so its not perfect yet - but it will be a regular product you can order and get installed from roughly september onwards! "
