News from Nissan: Nissan has announced full UK pricing and specifications for the revolutionary e-NV200, the 100% electric van that it hopes will change the LCV market.
The trailblazing model combines the all-round capability and versatility of the Nissan NV200 with a state-of-the-art all-electric drivetrain, which is manufactured in Sunderland.
Available from July in both panel van and five-seat combi form, and in two distinct trim levels, the groundbreaking newcomer offers exceptional running cost savings over a conventional diesel van, making it an genuine proposition for businesses large and small.
e-NV200 drivers can expect to benefit from up to £2,500 of fuel savings with the vehicle costing 2 pence per mile, while maintenance costs will be reduced by £575 based on servicing, parts and wear and tear. In addition, those that opt for the all-electric e-NV200 will pay no road tax and will be exempt from the London Congestion Charge.
But Nissan has added to the model’s appeal with a pricing structure that provides the ultimate in convenience and flexibility. Customers can either choose to buy e-NV200 outright or opt for ‘Flex’ – an affordable battery leasing option that reduces the initial purchase price. Whichever option they choose, 100% electric e-NV200 models qualify for a Government grant – up to £8,000 Plug-In Van Grant (PiVG) for the panel van, and up to £5,000 Plug-In Car Grant (PiCG) for the five-seater combi.
With the government incentive, the entry level e-NV200 Acenta, can be purchased outright for just £16,562.20 while the combi variety is priced from £22,859. Meanwhile, those choosing the Flex option, with monthly battery rental starting from £61 per month will see their initial outlay (incorporating PiVG/PiCG) on the same Acenta level van and combi fall to just £13,393 and £17,855 respectively.
