At the recent GreenFleet Awards 2014 in Warwickshire, the e-NV200 received 2 awards.
The Industry Innovation of the Year award, and the Outstanding Achievement Award which was for the partnership between Nissan, Hitachi Capital Commercial Vehicle Solutions, and British Gas. The pilot of e-NV200 to British Gas fleet was successful and British Gas has already ordered 100 of the electric vans.
Presenting the award for Industry Innovation, the Greenfleet judges noted the ‘rarely-seen levels of anticipation’ that had surrounded the launch of the e-NV200 and said the model would lead a revolution in UK fleets.
The potential to inspire industry-wide change was also the deciding factor in the judges’ decision in the Outstanding Achievement award.
Nissan Motor GB Sales Director Barry Beeston said:
We are absolutely delighted to see the e-NV200 being honoured in this way.
The e-NV200 is a model with the potential to transform fleets, with running costs of just two pence per mile contributing to significantly reduced whole life costs, not to mention the environmental benefits.
