Channel Island’s Jersey Post Will Use A Fleet Of 15 All-Electric Nissan e-NV200s

Good news from Channel Island in the UK: the Channel Island’s postal service, Jersey Post, will use a fleet of 15 all-electric Nissan e-NV200s. The Channel Island’s all-electric postal vans from Nissan will deliver the mail on routes across Jersey — with more ease. The van shares that wonderful, smooth, responsive drive that a Nissan Leaf offers.

Nissan continues by noting that the van purchase “follows an extensive 18-month trial.” Working with Jersey Post, local dealer Freelance Nissan supplied the all-electric vans.

The addition of the advanced all-electric vans will reduce Jersey Post’s carbon footprint by 35 tonnes a year.

Environmentalists and humanitarians alike love the zero emissions of Nissan’s all-electric vehicles. But they also love Nissan’s electric vehicle performance —  top quality. Be it car or van, electric vehicles are incredibly responsive to your foot’s touch.

Nissan continues“Jersey Post was drawn to the e-NV200 by its performance and its useful load capacity. With the company choosing to buy its new vans outright, Nissan’s market-leading five-year, 100,000 miles warranty also influenced its purchasing decision.”

Andy Jehan, Director of Operations at Jersey Post, said:

“The Nissan e-NV200 was the right vehicle for us on every level. The vans are going to make a very significant contribution in our ambition to lower the environmental impact of our fleet and help preserve the beauty of our island – both in terms of carbon emissions and noise – and they’re also ideal for the short distance, stop/start driving that the job involves.

“The value is exceptional too, our decision to switch being ultimately based on the financial projections we have made on whole life costs. If our projections prove accurate, then there’s no reason why many more of our vehicles shouldn’t be electric.”

The e-NV200 is based on the Nissan NV200 – International Van of the Year 2010 – and uses the proven technology of the record-breaking Nissan Leaf.

A nice plus to most electric vehicles is also low maintenance. There is minimal maintenance necessary for the Nissan Leaf I drive. Someone noticed when I did not use my Leaf for about a week and asked, “Do you need parts for your car?” I responded, “No, just taking a break from driving. Essentially all I would need if something was wrong is a battery. Nothing is.”

Here are more points from Nissan:

“In addition to low running costs and zero emissions mobility, users also benefit from low maintenance costs that make for unrivaled total cost of ownership – £1,200 lower than a conventional diesel van over four years – and an unbeatable proposition for businesses large and small thanks to the unique driving experience of the e-NV200, drivers will feel less fatigued due to the lack of engine vibration in the cabin.

“Meanwhile, the model offers a class-leading 4.2m3 capacity and an impressive 703kg payload.”
