Nissan showcased two new vehicles at the 13th annual Commercial Vehicle Show at the NEC in Birmingham last week.
The eNV200, Nissan’s first 100% electric van made its UK debut at the show. It has already won praise with fleet operators for zero CO2 at the point of use, driving comfort and generous carrying capacity and payload.
With prices at the pump continuing to rise, one of the biggest benefits of the eNV200 will be the long term cost savings that can be made by charging the van with electricity rather than filling up with diesel.
Also making its debut on the Nissan stand was the NV200 taxi, Nissan’s vision for the future of the London ‘black cab’. The NV200 taxi is based on the company’s multi-purpose NV200 compact van and redesigned to fully comply with the host of TfL Taxi Conditions of Fitness.
As well as seating to comfortably accommodate five passengers, the NV200 Taxi has also been modified to accommodate a wheel chair passenger and achieve a 25ft (7.6m) turning-circle – a legal requirement for all Hackney Carriages.
Built in response to strong fleet and business demand, the new and highly affordable entry-level version of the popular Navara double cab pick-up will be exhibited on the Nissan stand. The Navara Visia has been carefully developed to offer operators a practical, robust and capable pick-up at a price that’s in tune with the times.
