New figures have shown Nissan is one of the UK brand leaders of EVs and commercial vehicles, including e-LCVs, the manufacturer has claimed.
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 a van or a seven-seat people-carrier, secured a 66% 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, it claimed. The Nissan LEAF continues to be a popular option for buyers. The 40kWh N-Connecta has a 168 miles on a single charge and there is also the longer range 62kWH LEAF, which can deliver up to 239 miles on a single charge.
Nic Verneuil, sales director at Nissan GB, said: “With significant gains in running and maintenance costs, no road tax to pay and free entry to the increasing number of low emission zones across the UK, the Nissan electric range offers everyday value to savvy motorists looking to upgrade to an electric future – a future we call Nissan NEXT.”
