Nissan will be showcasing two new vehicles at the 13th annual Commercial Vehicle Show at the NEC Birmingham on April 9-11.
The E-NV200, Nissan’s first 100% electric van will make its UK debut at the show. Nissan says it has already won praise with fleet operators during trials, for zero CO2 at the point of use, driving comfort and generous carrying capacity and payload.
Also making its debut on the Nissan stand will be the NV200 taxi, Nissan’s vision for the future of the London ‘black cab’. The NV200 taxi is based on the company’s multi-purpose NV200 compact van and redesigned to fully comply with the host of TFL Taxi Conditions of Fitness.
As well as seating to comfortably accommodate five passengers, the NV200 Taxi has also been modified to accommodate a wheel chair passenger and achieve a 25ft (7.6m) turning-circle – a legal requirement for all Hackney Carriages.
Other vehicles on display will include the Navara Visia, which has been developed to offer operators a practical, robust and capable pick-up at a more affordable price.
The Nissan stand is in Hall 3a (stand number 3A80) and will also feature a Cabstar, NV200, NV200 Fridge, NV400 panel van and a Red Bull Formula 1 car.
Jon Pollock, Nissan corporate sales director said: “We’re looking forward to showing the eNV200 to the public and offering a glimpse into the future of vans and their potential low running costs. Fleets that have recently tested the eNV200 have given us excellent feedback and we’re now excited to see the response from the public.
“Since we will not only be featuring the eNV200 and NV200 London Taxi in the UK for the first time but also showcasing one of the widest ranges of available commercial vehicles of any manufacturer present, we’re confident Nissan will have one of the most exciting stands at the show.”
Taxis are an excellent application for electric vehicles. Fleetdrive Electric are excited that our Capital could soon be pioneering them.
