The challenge was to show how low energy costs are to use electric vehicles.

Ergo group of companies put the e-NV200 into service in its air conditioning division and took the challenge. Their cost for the day was only £1.20 in electricity.

Quote:
“Undertaking the £2 Challenge, Ergro engineer Charlie Morgan drove the fully loaded e-NV200 from the company’s Dartford base to central London where he completed a full day’s worth of service calls before heading back.

At the end of the day, he had used just £1.20′s worth of the vehicle’s full £2 charge, clearly demonstrating how the e-NV200 can help fleet operators and business van users significantly reduce running and whole-life costs.”

Ergro chairman, Chris Wollen, stated:

Quote:
“We’ve been really impressed by the e-NV200 and what it can do.”

“The running costs speak for themselves and are a real no-brainer but there’s a lot more to this van than cost savings.”

“As a company that takes the sustainability of its fleet very seriously, we’ll definitely take a very close look at the e-NV200 when we next buy vehicles.”


From Nissan:
Quote:
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

Another company in the UK has decided to compete in Nissan's £2 Challenge

Image

Starting with a full load at New Spitalfields Market in the East End, company director Laszlo Mulato drove a total of 36.6 miles and made 15 deliveries before returning to depot with 50 percent of the vehicle’s original charge remaining.

Based on that performance, the company could expect to make 3,900 deliveries a year, covering almost 10,000 miles for a total electricity bill of just £260.
