    My sister recently bought a UK 2016 model from the UK that is now converted to a camper / home office. As far as i could tell its a leaf with firmer suspension and performs similar to a leaf so expect lower range and all the normal challenges of the leaf. I believe the battery is actively cooled and you can hear fans running when parked and charging.

    The new model looks almost identical to hers so I suspect its just the battery that has been upgraded to same as the l40. A 60kwh battery would have made more sense as it does struggle with efficiency at times.

    She loves it, its now the family primary car.

    Well it's just about the only 7 seater EV around other than the Model X. So if it's a 7 seater you're after then you've not much choice

    I think they've been around in the UK from last year, and it's based on the e-NV200 which has been around for a while.
    It might be worth looking one up second hand in the UK as you could save some money that way

    Range from EV database looks to be around 190km, so I wouldn't count on more than 160-170km with a safe buffer
    https://ev-database.org/car/1117/Nissan-e-NV200-Evalia
    I'm in Dublin and if I had one I'd be confident driving around most of Leinster with at most a single quick charge
    It does have battery cooling so shouldn't be any rapidgate issues there

    The infotainment looks very much copied from the leaf, so expect it to be state of the art for 2011.
    Still, it has all the essentials for driver comfort, air con, heated seats & wheel, decent stereo with phone connection so can't go wrong there

    I looked at one in the UK a while back, decided if I was going to spend that money I'd get something smaller with a nicer interior
    BUT, it does have a lot of space and looks very versatile, so if that's what you need then I don't think you'd be going wrong with the Evalia

    You could at the LEVC TX, which is basically an electric London taxi with a petrol range extender

    It's got two features which personally I think are the greatest thing ever

    1. No passenger seat, so no 'assistant driver' telling you to slow down
    2. A window to separate the driver from the passenger compartment. It could be battle royale back there and you'll be undisturbed

    Okay I am joking around, but it'd be nice if LEVC made a more 'normal car' version of the TX, I think they'd sell a lot

    I would wish those are standard on cars, less importantly its also has 11kw or 22 kw AC charging with the option of CCS or chademo.:D:D:D
