Zenith has supplied OVO Energy with a new fleet of 26 Nissan e-NV200 electric vans.
The vehicles were delivered within 12 weeks of order to ensure fleet replacement cycles were met and follows the delivery of 40 Kia e-Niros in December 2020.
Equipped with the same 40kWh battery as the new Nissan Leaf, the 100% electric Nissan e-NV200 has a maximum range of 187 miles in city conditions and offers multiple charging modes.
Ben Guest, field operations director at OVO Energy, said: “We’re committed to expand our Field Force team’s fleet with new electric vehicles, building on our commitment to achieve net-zero carbon emissions from our own operations by 2030.
“Zenith is a valuable partner in helping us with our goals and enabling us to transition to a fully electric fleet.”
OVO Energy supplied its Field Force team with the Kia e-Niros, while its smart meter installation engineers will operate the Nissan e-NV200s.
OVO has already set progressive goals, committed to achieving net zero carbon for its own operations and supply chain whilst halving its members’ carbon footprint by 2030, as a direct response to climate change.
It has also signed up to the EV100 campaign and committed to an all-electric fleet by 2030.
Mark Grundy, customer relationship manager at Zenith, said: “The team at Zenith used its industry expertise to quickly order, equip and deploy these fully electric vehicles within a short period of time.
“We continue to work closely with OVO Energy to understand the different driver requirements in their fleet and recommend a bespoke transition strategy that meets their operational needs and fleet ambitions.”
Zenith is supporting OVO with a complete fleet service. The livery was fitted by MediaFleet.
