Nissan dealers are now able to supply a larger version of the electric e-NV200 van, built by Bevan Group business En-Veco.
The conversion was developed by Slovakian urban delivery business Voltia, but a new agreement means the conversion can now be produced in the UK.
With a cargo capacity of 8 cubic metres, the XL Voltia has around twice the cargo capacity of a regular e-NV200. The roof height also allows for standing room in the back.
En-Veco has built a fleet of demonstration units, which are now being trialled by operators and has commenced production after securing its first orders.
Bevan Group sales director Roy Shelton, said: “Electric vans will be at the top of a lot of operators’ lists as the Covid-19 lockdown measures are gradually relaxed and the market starts to recover. The fact that this vehicle is now part of the official Nissan range and sold directly through its dealer network means it is going to get a lot more exposure which is sure to boost customer demand.”
Manuel Burdiel Alvaro, Nissan’s general manager Europe, LCV Sales and Business Development, added: “The light commercial vehicle segment will play a key role in optimising urban last-mile delivery for a more sustainable future. We believe the Nissan e-NV200 XL Voltia provides the perfect solution to achieve significant progress towards that goal. Thanks to its competitive pricing, zero-emission electric power and 8m3 of versatile cargo space, it is designed from the ground-up to support increasing e-commerce and last-mile delivery demand.”
