ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

Nissan Announces that it's e-NV200 will come with a Five year/60,000 Miles warranty as standard from October.
Nissan announces introduction of new five year warranty for the e-NV200 at the 2016 Hannover Motor Show
New five year / 60,000 mile warranty guarantees quality on the all-electric Nissan e-NV200 van, five-seat and seven-seat variants
The warranty will apply to all new e-NV200s sold in Europe
Nissan now offers five year warranties on all light commercial vehicles (LCVs) in its range*
Warranty announcement follows recognition of excellence in the 2016 German Commercial Vehicle Awards
Nissan will be offering a five year / 60,000 mile warranty on all new Nissan e-NV200s sold in Europe.
The new warranty, which was announced today at the 2016 Hannover Motor Show, will be offered on all new e-NV200s purchased from the 1st October onwards. It means the entire vehicle and its 100 percent electric drivetrain is under guarantee for five years or up to 60,000 mile, whichever comes first.
With this warranty, Nissan is once again setting the benchmark for the electric vehicle (EV) category.
This highly competitive offer is one of the longest standard warranties currently available on an electric van** and demonstrates Nissan’s confidence in not only the quality of its electric batteries and zero emission technology, but also the durability across its light commercial vehicle (LCV) range.
The five year warranty covers mechanical and electric vehicle components, battery capacity, corrosion (up to 12 years) and includes roadside assistance. Nissan e-NV200 owners also benefit from a three year warranty on body parts and paint.
The announcement of the new warranty comes as Nissan celebrates the e-NV200 winning the German Commercial Vehicle Award for 2016 in the special category of Electrically Driven Urban Delivery Vehicle. Considered an important indicator of quality and excellence within the sector, Nissan collected the accolade today at the Show.
Gareth Dunsmore, Director of Electric Vehicles at Nissan Europe, said: “At Nissan, meeting the needs of our customers is one of the most influential factors in the development of our products. The Nissan e-NV200 provides a sustainable zero emission transport solution for both businesses and families alike. It offers a functional, versatile cargo space, exceptionally low running costs with fuel costs starting from as little as 2p per mile and 106 miles (NEDC) on a single charge.
“The e-NV200 is both affordable and practical, without compromising on quality. We want to give our customers peace of mind that the Nissan e-NV200 is a reliable and versatile light commercial vehicle and introducing this five year warranty is a clear demonstration of that confidence. We hope that this warranty will offer an even more compelling reason for our customers to consider a zero emission alternative when looking to purchase a new vehicle for their business.”
The Nissan e-NV200 is an ideal electric vehicle for families and businesses alike, combining the best of Nissan’s NV200 van with tried and tested zero emission technology from the world’s best-selling all-electric car, the Nissan LEAF. The e-NV200 line-up offers a variety of options to suit every requirement, including a panel van, five-seat and seven-seat versions, all with a driving range of up to 106 miles on a single charge***.
For businesses, the e-NV200 is the perfect transportation solution, flexible enough to adapt to a wide range of uses, from delivery van, to taxi, to tradesman’s vehicle. Its low running costs – on average around £2.00 for a single charge – make it cheaper to run than a conventional van. Its class-leading load-space offers a spacious interior and the zero emission power-train helps businesses to reduce their carbon footprint in a sustainable manner. The Nissan e-NV200 five-seat and seven-seat variants are available in either the commercial Combi trim level or the fully trimmed Evalia passenger version.
The Nissan e-NV200 forms part of Nissan’s award-winning LCV range, which also includes the popular Navara - a pick-up with an 80 year heritage, the NV200, NV400 vans, NT400 Cabstar and NT500 trucks. Sales of the Nissan e-NV200 in Europe grew approximately 84 percent between 2014 and 2015, with 2016 sales on track to continue this growth trend.
*The e-NV200 five year warranty (five years or 60,000 miles) differs from the five year warranty offered on the rest of Nissan’s LCV range, which is five years or 100,000 miles. The Basic Vehicles Warranty according to 3.1 of the Warranty Booklet and Maintenance Record is extended to 5-Year (from the warranty start date)/ 60,000 miles (whichever comes first) warranty for e-NV200. Body parts and paint excluded during year 4 and year 5. Issuer of this Extended Warranty is Nissan International Insurance Ltd.
** Nissan offers the longest warranty from base version, as standard, without adding extra Extended Warranty options
***A range of up to 106 miles per full charge (based on New European Driving Cycle). Actual consumption and range may vary due to driving style, road condition, air-conditioning and other factors outside our control.
