Nissan Light Commercial Electric Vehicle sketch – Click above to enlarge

At the Work Truck 2010 show in St. Louis today, Nissan Americas president Carlos Tavares announced that the company is working to bring its recently launched NV200 compact van to the U.S. market. The NV200 would join the new full-size NV vans in Nissan's commercial vehicle lineup as a competitor to Ford's new Transit Connect. Tavares didn't provide any indication about possible timing for an American introduction for the smaller van.

In another parallel to Ford's small commercial vehicle program, Tavares indicated that an electric version of the NV200 could join the Leaf in Nissan's American zero emissions lineup. The electric NV200 was initially announced by CEO Carlos Ghosn at the Tokyo Motor Show. So far, Nissan has only released a single sketch of an electric NV200 although we would expect a concept to appear in the coming months.
