Thinking of buying a used electric Nissan NV200 in Ireland and taxing and insuring it privately and using it as my private car for non-commercial use. Do I have to pay VAT and would it qualify for low tax?

You can buy one and use it privately, yes. You’ll have to pay the VAT as part of the normal purchase price, and you’ll have to find an insurer willing to cover you as a private driver, so have a good shop around for that beforehand. As it’s electric, you’ll be in the lowest €120 motor tax category.
