Nissan e-vans buzzing in Europe

The Nissan e-NV200 was named Europe’s best-selling electric van in 2016, with the UK its biggest market.

The award-winning all-electric van ranked number one in 17 countries across Europe. Sales were up 20% on the previous year and, alongside the LEAF, Nissan’s electric vehicle models command almost 50% of the entire EV market in the UK.

In the UK, sales of the e-NV200 have more than doubled since launching in 2014 with the model claiming just over 82% market share in 2016.

Gareth Dunsmore, director of electric vehicles at Nissan Europe, said, ‘As more and more businesses focus on reducing their carbon footprint, the need to find zero emission transport solutions is becoming more important than ever. Through Nissan Intelligent Mobility, we are working towards a sustainable future and our e-NV200 complements our vision perfectly whilst catering to a wide range of customer needs.

‘Aside from its obvious environmental advantages, e-NV200 owners also benefit from its low-running costs, starting from as little as two pence per mile, a smooth and near-silent ride and 40% lower servicing costs when compared with an equivalent diesel vehicle.’
