Nissan has announced that Portland General Electric will be using an e-NV200 on a "six-week trial to help determine the viability of an electric commercial vehicle in the U.S. market."

The Nissan electric van will be used with an underground crew, replacing a larger, diesel powered van.

Toby Perry, Nissan’s director of EV Marketing in the U.S., stated:

Quote:
“Oregon has been a top five market for Nissan LEAF sales in the U.S. due to proactive policies at the state level to encourage EV adoption, as well as robust charging infrastructure championed by the state and others like PGE. If we determine that e-NV200 fits into the U.S. commercial vehicle market, we expect that Portland would be a leading driver for sales as well.”


Charlie Allcock, director, business development at PGE, commented:

Quote:
“EVs have already demonstrated their value as a sustainable choice for personal use, and fleet electrification is the logical next step. We’re excited to see firsthand the impact the e-NV200 can have on our own fleet and to help other companies understand the potential it represents for them.”


Quote:
“This year, Nissan is deploying two e-NV200 prototypes with companies such as PGE and FedEx in top U.S. EV markets including California, Georgia, Oregon and Washington, D.C. to determine how businesses could use an all-electric cargo van to meet their day-to-day requirements.”

It will be very interesting to see what PGE has to say about the viability of this electric van.

Although, do we ever really hear the results of these commercial partnership type tests?! :?:
