Nissan has revealed its vision for the future with a campervan that has a vast array of sustainable credentials.

The e-NV200 Winter Camper concept is an all-electric van with a rapid-charge battery that can be boosted to 80 per cent in 40 to 60 minutes.

Among the technologies designed to facilitate winter adventures and save energy are Nissan's innovative powertrain system, B-mode for braking and Eco-mode for efficient power consumption.

Inside, the e-NV200 Winter Camper features luxury kit to make camping in the wild as comfortable and versatile as possible.

There's an integrated kitchen, folding beds and the glass on the windows is well insulated to keep the winter chill out.

An onboard 220V power pack is recharged using the solar panel on the roof to ensure campervanners are making the most of their environment.

When it comes to tackling wintry weather, there's premium off-road tyres and 5400-Lumens twin-spotlights on the front of the camper for improved visibility, as well as mudguards and rubber mats to keep mess to a minimum.

Dmitry Busurkin, corporate sales and LCV general manager of light commercial vehicles at Nissan Europe, said: "For Nissan, electric mobility is all about offering an exciting experience behind the wheel - while above all remaining conscious of our impact on the environment.

"Imbued with the essence of adventure and thrilling electrified power, the Nissan e-NV200 Winter Camper concept van is an expression of the future of zero-emissions mobility.

"This vision, and the innovative set of accessories available with the standard e-NV200 models, will get drivers and outdoor enthusiasts alike excited for the adventures we're all craving in the future."

While wild camping trips are off the table this winter, keen campervanners could be seeking out rugged terrain and natural beauty in the e-NV200 by this time next year.
