NISSAN has today launched an exciting and informative web hub offering fleet van operators in the UK real-world testimony and insights into its groundbreaking e-NV200 all-electric van.
e4Business will act as the central home for a growing series of short and entertaining videos highlighting how the e-NV200 is revolutionising transport for business van users across the country. It is the hub for companies to find all required information to show how they can save costs by going electric.
Two of the first videos star TV DIY expert and van user Tommy Walsh as he spends time with a pair of companies – air conditioning and heating specialists Ergro and fresh fruit delivery business Fruit 4 London – that have already experienced first-hand the e-NV200’s game-changing ability to cut running costs.
They are among a series of videos where the featured companies undertake the ‘£2 a day Challenge’ to demonstrate how far the e-NV200 can go and how much it can carry for just a couple of quid.
Barry Beeston, Corporate Sales Director at Nissan Motor (GB) Limited, said: “We know the e-NV200 has the potential to make a huge impact on running costs and total cost of ownership for massive numbers of van operators but we are also aware that this is a new and unfamiliar technology for many.
“e4Business is a wonderful forum through which we can share real-life everyday examples of how fleet operators in the UK are taking advantage of the model’s unrivalled benefits to improve their bottom line.
“We will also share the experiences of drivers and vehicle users to showcase the practicality and versatility as a working vehicle.”
Based on the Nissan NV200 – International Van of the Year 2010 – and utilising the proven technology of the record breaking Nissan LEAF, the new e-NV200 costs just two pence per mile to run and is exempt from the London Congestion Charge thanks to its zero emissions 100% electric powertrain.
In addition to low running costs and emissions, users will also benefit from low maintenance costs that make for unrivalled total cost of ownership – £1,200 lower than a conventional diesel van over four years – and an unbeatable proposition for businesses large and small Thanks to the unique driving experience of the e-NV200, drivers will feel less fatigued due to the lack of engine vibration in the cabin.
Meanwhile, the model, which is priced from £13,393 in panel van form (incorporating PiVG) offers a class-leading 4.2m3 capacity and an impressive 703kg payload.
