Nissan launches E4Business to offer fleets EV insight

Nissan has today launched a web hub offering fleet van operators in the UK real-world testimony and insights into its ground-breaking e-NV200 all-electric van.

E4Business will act as the central home for a growing series of short videos highlighting how the e-NV200 is revolutionising transport for business van users across the country.

It is the hub for companies to find all required information to show how they can save costs by going electric.

Two of the first videos star TV DIY expert and van user Tommy Walsh as he spends time with a pair of companies – air conditioning and heating specialists Ergro and fresh fruit delivery business Fruit 4 London – that have already experienced first-hand the e-NV200’s game-changing ability to cut running costs.

They are among a series of videos where the featured companies undertake the ‘£2 a day Challenge’ to demonstrate how far the e-NV200 can go and how much it can carry for just a couple of pounds.

Barry Beeston, corporate sales director at Nissan Motor (GB), said: “We know the e-NV200 has the potential to make a huge impact on running costs and total cost of ownership for massive numbers of van operators but we are also aware that this is a new and unfamiliar technology for many.

“E4Business is a wonderful forum through which we can share real-life everyday examples of how fleet operators in the UK are taking advantage of the model’s unrivalled benefits to improve their bottom line.

“We will also share the experiences of drivers and vehicle users to showcase the practicality and versatility as a working vehicle.”

Based on the Nissan NV200 – International Van of the Year 2010 – and utilising the proven technology of the record breaking Nissan LEAF, the new e-NV200 costs just two pence per mile to run and is exempt from the London Congestion Charge thanks to its zero emissions 100% electric powertrain.
