A leading London fruit delivery firm has proved the benefits of the electric e-NV200 in Nissan's ‘£2 Challenge'.
Starting with a full load at New Spitalfields Market in the East End, company director Laszlo Mulato drove a total of 36.6 miles and made 15 deliveries before returning to depot with 50 percent of the vehicle's original charge remaining.
Based on that performance, the company could expect to make 3,900 deliveries a year, covering almost 10,000 miles for a total electricity bill of just £260.
Laszlo Mulato, Director of Fruit 4 London, said: "As a small business, it's hard to argue with figures like that.
"We were really impressed to see first hand how the e-NV200 could help us win new business, with many of our biggest clients and potential customers expressing a preference to work with green-minded suppliers."
The company has made a commitment to switch its entire fleet of vans to electric models, with an estimated £9,000 whole life cost saving per vehicle.
