WITH the news that the Mayor of London has announced an extension to the London Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ), the new longer-range Nissan e-NV200 might be the appropriate choice for city van operators.
Costing from £18,599 on the road (including government grant), the Nissan e-NV200 is in pole position to tackle the Ultra Low Emission Zone which will extend to London’s North and South Circular roads from 2021 – just three years away.
It’s not just London. Low emissions zones and clean air charges are planned for major cities including Oxford, Newcastle, Sheffield, Southampton, Birmingham and Leeds. More will follow.
And it’s happening on a micro scale too.
London’s Hackney and Islington boroughs are introducing clear air zones: petrol, diesel and older hybrid vehicles will not be allowed to enter nine streets during the peak commuter periods of 7am-10am and 4pm-7pm Monday to Friday to create a City Fringe cleaner zone.
So the new all-electric e-NV200 could be the answer to your future business deliveries.
It has a 705kg payload, enough cargo space for two Euro pallets and can travel 124 miles between charges (WLTP combined cycle) – more than the 55 miles a day covered by the average van in the UK according to the Department for Transport.
Iker Lazzari, Nissan’s Fleet Director, told Business Vans:
“With air quality and emissions in the news, now is the time to switch to electric and see just how much money you could save on operating costs.
“There are grants to fund purchase and a whole suite of EV tax incentives. Plus there’s the refinement, low running costs and reliability that an electric van offers in daily use. The new e-NV200 is the perfect opportunity to move your business forwards.”
The e-NV200 will not attract the forthcoming £12.50 London ULEZ charge or the current £11.50 Congestion Charge and is exempt from the current £11.50 T-Charge.
“The e-NV200 is the perfect choice for those businesses who want to make huge savings on their outgoings and avoid the costly implications of forthcoming emissions legislation changes,” added Lazzari.
