Nissan has unveiled the 2014 e-NV200, ahead of its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show.

Previewed by the e-NV200 concept, the production model has a Leaf-inspired front fascia with rounded curves and blue-tinted headlights. We can also see a charging port that resides where the grille would typically be located.

Interior pictures were not released but Nissan says the e-NV200 will have an advanced telematics system and a rear power supply that can be used to provided power for outdoor events or emergency situations.

Motivation is provided by a lithium-ion battery which powers an electric motor that develops 109 PS (80 kW / 107 hp) and 280 Nm (206 lb-ft) of torque. Detailed specifications haven't been released, but the battery can be given an 80 percent charge in just 30 minutes thanks to a "Quick Charge" system. The battery can also be used to power tools and equipment which could make the e-NV200 an ideal vehicle for mobile restaurants or workshops.

Nissan also announced the production model will be offered in three configurations: a panel van, a passenger carrying shuttle / taxi and a family-oriented version which will apparently be called the Evalia.
 
The e-NV200 will go on sale in Japan next year and will eventually be sold worldwide.
