Nissan e-NV200 is the UK’s best-selling electric van

Nissan is the UK’s biggest supplier of battery electric light commercial vehicles (e-LCVs), and the second most popular EV brand overall, according to figures released this month.

Nissan sold a combined total of 10,674 electric vehicles in the UK during the last 12 months and the e-NV200, which is available as both a van and a seven-seat people-carrier, secured a 66 per cent share of the e-LCV market over the last 12 months.

Nissan sold 2,448 e-NV200 in 2020 – more than twice the sales of its nearest rival. The brand also sold 72 e-NV200 models in Ireland last year, according to SIMI figures.

The Nissan e-NV200 has a range of up to 200 km WLTP Combined / 300 km WLTP City, according to the brand.

Nic Verneuil, sales director at Nissan GB, said: “These results offer evidence of an increasing number of customers choosing Nissan and its market-leading electric range as their zero emission vehicle and mobility brand of choice.

“The e-NV200 offers class-leading capability and value both from an acquisition and whole life cost standpoint.”
