Six of the best for pioneering Nissan e-NV200

Six of the best for pioneering Nissan e-NV200

The all-electric Nissan e-NV200 has scooped its sixth prestigious industry award, winning the Best Green Van honour at the Business Van of the Year awards in London.

Last year, the e-NV200 won What Van? magazine's Green Award and was also named Industry Innovation of the Year by GreenFleet and LCV of the Year by Next Green Car.

The revolutionary van also helped the Japanese carmaker win the ULEV Manufacturer of the Year title at the Energy Saving Trust's Fleet Hero awards, as well as the Green Van Manufacturer of the Year title at the Fleet Van Awards.

Editorial director at Business Van, Ralph Morton, said: "Going green has never been so easy. The electric e-NV200 is just like the standard NV200 except it costs just two pence per mile to run, has a range in excess of 100 miles, is emission free, and still manages to provide an uncompromising flat load-space floor that takes two Europallets and a 703kg payload. It's a brilliant achievement and the van to change the perception of the electric van - it's practical, green and cost effective all in one."

Corporate sales director at Nissan Motor (GB), Barry Beeston, added: "The fleet and LCV media has been unanimous in its praise for the e-NV200 and the potential this incredible van has to help fleets bring down costs and emissions. I would encourage fleet operators to try the vehicle for themselves to see just how easily it could help them make a real impact on both their carbon footprint and their bottom line."
