The all-electric Nissan e-NV200 gains success at the WhatCar? Van Awards 2021

The zero-emission Nissan e-NV200 has taken home the title of Best Value for Ownership Costs in the small van category, at the WhatCar? Van Awards 2021 with judges saying that it had potential to be a perfect choice, especially for use in and around large cities.

The 40kWh battery of this LCV means that owners never have to spend money on diesel or petrol, and its service, maintenance and repair bills are lower than those of vans with traditional internal combustion engines.

The e-NV200 allows electricity to flow in both directions to and from the vehicle due to its vehicle-to-grid built-in capability. Energy stored in the battery is then sold back to the grid when the vehicle is parked, earning additional energy bill discounts for the vehicle owner.

Compact, versatile and fully equipped with Nissan Intelligent Mobility technology, the e-NV200 is the up and coming choice for businesses of all shapes and sizes.

Peter McDonald, Fleet Director at Nissan Motor (GB) Ltd, said:

“We’re delighted to have won this important accolade at the inaugural What Car? Van Awards. We’re extremely proud of the 100% electric e-NV200, which is available in van and both five and seven-seat combi forms. It’s smooth, practical and incredibly efficient, and with its maximum range of 187 miles in city conditions, it gets drivers and their cargos all around the city like true professionals. The Nissan e-NV200 is the ideal electric commercial vehicle for any business, whether you’re a fleet manager or small enterprise. And when you go 100% electric, low operating costs, high efficiency and surprising performance come as standard.”

Steve Huntingford, editor of WhatCar? praised the e-NV200 for being ‘a compact van with a high capacity’ and added:

“Throw in an electric drivetrain and you’re potentially future-proofing your purchase for years to come. The e-NV200 has been around for a while, but there’s yet to be a credible rival to this big-volume, all-electric van, which draws back on its higher upfront purchase or lease cost by offering far cheaper running costs and better residual values come resale time.
“Nearly a decade after trials first began in London, the e-NV200 continues to prove its durability, and it comes with a five-year vehicle warranty and eight years of battery cover. For most owners most of the time, especially in and around large cities where compact dimensions and low emissions are critical, we believe the potential is there for the e-NV200 to be the perfect choice.”
