Nissan e-NV200 gets tested by British Gas

Nissan has been piloting the e-NV200 electric van worldwide for a few years, and the automaker plans to put the vehicle on sale to the public next year. The newest test being run is a winter test in the UK to determine the viability of 100% electric vehicle technology during the coldest part of the year.

“a great opportunity for us to understand how the Nissan e-NV200 vans perform during the winter”
Colin Marriott, Fleet GM at British Gas says “We have worked closely with Nissan and Hitachi Capital to ensure that the Nissan e-NV200 is ready to support our engineers during even the most demanding of winter conditions. All 28 have also been provided with a British Gas home charging point and access cards to public infrastructure to keep the vehicles charged up.”

Nationwide, British Gas is testing 28 e-NV200 vans from November 2013 to April 2014 to asses how the electric van performs during winter conditions during typical daily usage patterns. British Gas drivers have been fully trained in how to drive and live the the all electric van.

Available some time next year, the Nissan e-NV200 is the second all-electric vehicle from Nissan, and shares many of its drivetrain components with the Nissan LEAF electric passenger vehicle.
