Nissan has announced the spec and pricing for its revolutionary e-NV200 van which, the firm claims, is going to forever change the LCV market.
The e-NV200 is an electric van which promises running costs of just 2p per mile – which would be a class leading amount.
The vehicle is available as a five seat combi or as a panel van and should build on the success of the firm’s NV200 which was the International Van of the Year in 2010.
Grants for electric van to encourage ownership
Prices for the e-NV200 start at £13,393 helped by the fact that there’s a flexible battery leasing option which reduces the initial outlay.
The vehicle also qualifies for a government grant of up to £8,000 for the panel version and £5,000 for the combi.
Hopes are high for the new van which is already attracting considerable interest which has an all- electric drivetrain which has been tried and tested in more than 100,000 vehicles worldwide so far.
Nissan e-NV200 will reduce fleet running costs
The e-NV200 is a versatile and capable van which should be a popular choice, particularly with those firms looking to reduce their carbon footprint.
It should also be popular with firms looking to reduce their vehicle running costs and Nissan says that by running an electric van, owners should be able to save around £2,500 on average in fuel costs and servicing bills will drop by around £575.
In addition, the e-NV200 is not liable for road tax and is exempt from London’s congestion charge.
Orders are being taken now and deliveries start from July.
