To try and find out if this is a common fault on these vans, potentially to get Nissan involved to try and sort it out.
The issue seems to be noise from some parts of the air conditioning or battery cooling system that sounds like grinding/vibration and can be heard from outside of the van as well as through the floor and bodywork.

I think you need more options. At times, when I've been driving the vehicle hard and/or doing lots of rapid charging in 1 day, then the cooling fan/compressor goes into overdrive, and is noticeably louder, but not excessive like yours and doesn't rattle, and it stops after 3 or 4 minutes.

However, I wouldn't say there's a specific pattern when it does that, as I have had it come on after a couple of hours gentle driving, after a night's charge on the granny cable, but not come on after 3 consecutive rapid charges, with the battery temperature slightly elevated.
