Will 2015 be the year to buy an electric van?

If you are a tradesperson and want to sell your van to Sell Your Jamjar then you may want to consider an electric van. According to Nissan, the new e-NV200 is at its best in start-stop traffic.

It is said to be up to x4 cheaper to run compared to a diesel vehicle, there are zero road tax costs, you receive a 100 per cent discount on Congestion Charge if travelling in London, there are government grants available and fewer parts to repair and replace (no gearbox, clutch etc)

Nissan claim there is no noise or vibration from an engine, its ultra-light battery means carrying capacity is not affected, the van has the same cargo space as the NV200 Diesel – so there is no compromise, the van has a discreet charge point below the bonnet badge and the e-NV200 battery can be recharged overnight in eight hours.

The Japanese car manufacturer also claims the e-NV200 is the first electric van to cost be priced at £13,393 when bought with a lease package for the battery. The outright on-the-road price is £16,562.20.

In fact, the UK Government has introduced incentives for anyone who goes green with their company vehicles. The latest green deal is a grant towards the cost of each brand new electric van or car you buy.

Nissan say the van grant offers a potential 20 per cent off the purchase price of your new electric van up to a maximum amount of £8,000 on all plug-in vans.

Your new van is likely to be eligible if it is one of the following: an EV – an electric vehicle which runs totally on batteries and is mains charged, a PHEVs – a plug-in hybrid which runs on a combination of petrol or diesel and battery power or hydrogen fuel cell vehicle.

Nissan promises its electric van will ‘revolutionise’ commercial so the question is are you ready for one yet?
