A Cornwall taxi company has taken delivery of one of the first all-electric Nissan e-NV200 Combi models to arrive in the UK.
St Austell-based C&C Taxis added the award-winning to its six-strong fleet of 100% electric Nissan Leafs earlier this month.
C&C’s fleet manager, Mark Richards, is sure the company’s onto another winner, calculating that, just like each LEAF on the fleet, the e-NV200 Combi will save £10,000 in fuel bills per year.
The e-NV200 Combi has convinced him to commit to a long-term strategy of phasing out the company’s remaining diesel vehicles and replacing them all with EVs.
Mark said: “We’ve had such great success with our Leafs we decided we were going to buy an e-NV200 the minute we learnt it was going to be launched.
“Now we have one, we’re absolutely delighted with it. It does everything the Leaf does but is much bigger and offers more space.”
“We’ll definitely be ordering more.”
Priced from £17,855, the e-NV200 Combi is capable of covering 106 miles on a single charge and can be charged from zero to 80% full in as little as 30 minutes.
