Just looking at getting a 7 seat version and am interested in finding out if it is registered as a panel Van, like the van models? It should say either way on the V5 if anyone has one.

Thanks in advance, just curious about speed limits.

From the brochure, the e-nv200 has a MGW of 2250kg, so it appears it is subject to the Van speed limits. ?

No, CDV is for small commercial (ie no rear seats). If you’ve got MPV on the V5 then car limits apply.

Can get Down to less than 100 miles range in the winter with heater, lights etc plus wet weather & around 140 miles in summer & that's driving carefully ? if you drive at "normal" speeds it'll be even lower...

Wow, that's pretty poor. I knew the 24kwh model was awful, but the 40kwh isn't that much better. Nobody wants to top up at every services down the motorway ?

Sadly the 6+ seat market is extremely limited.

I know, I was expecting it to be better myself & was really surprised how bad it could be. I've been driving EVs for 6 yrs now & have always got pretty good MPKw but the env was terrible...
A real shame as it ticked all the boxes for me on paper...
I was never expecting the 175 or so miles that Nissan says but i found myself driving like Miss daisy just to make sure I got over 100 miles b4 charging & that was on local A rds at a max of around 50mph real speed (55 indicated & average of less than 20mph)
There was a chap on here who did some YouTube videos showing how bad his Evalia was for range...
It's a great vehicle in all other respects but I just couldn't live with the low range on a regular basis...
I now have a 62kWh leaf & I'm getting double the range with normal driving dispite only a third bigger battery, I will go back to a diesel van as a second vehicle...
