According to an article on ClickGreen, Nissan has doubled the size of its EV fleet specialists team.
The move comes as sales of the British-built Nissan LEAF – the best-selling all-electric car in the UK and the world – continue to go from strength-to-strength and at a time of huge interest in the brand’s recently launched 100% electric van, the ground-breaking e-NV200.
Heading up the new-look team is National EV Manager, Karl Anders, who joins Nissan from the Energy Saving Trust where he served as Fleet Consultant and built an expert knowledge of the electric vehicle market.
Karl Anders said: “Most of us are coming out of recession but the public sector, particularly NHS Trusts and Local Authorities, are facing mounting budget, duty of care and air quality pressures.
“On top of this, the way many of these organisations are being restructured and travel requirements are changing means travel costs are going through the roof. Grey fleet, where staff uses their own private cars for business travel, is being relied upon much more and that’s usually pretty horrific both in terms of costs of travel, driver safety and emissions.
“For many of these organisations, the addition of electric vehicles to their fleet mix could provide a ready-made solution to many problems.
“Both the LEAF and e-NV200 tick many boxes for public sector fleet operators, not to mention the fact they are both exceptional and extremely practical vehicles in their own right.”
