Nissan eNV200 Electric Van Can Handle Cold Weather
The intensive month-long testing program was conducted in and around Nissan’s Sunderland Plant and testing facility to see how the compact EV van tackles the cold weather.
UK’s weather conditions were almost perfect for the tests, with temperatures dropping to -12° C (10.4° F) in which the vehicle proved its performances and reliability.
“We have been very impressed with all elements of the Nissan eNV200. After our month long test in 2012 which went well the cold weather testing was vitally important to establish the van’s characteristics in real life working conditions. The drivers enjoyed the experience and the vehicle’s performance and reliability. We will now continue further testing in 2013 and 2014 ahead of us deciding our future fleet mix.” fleet general manager at British Gas, Collin Marriott said.
The Nissan eNV200 features the best-in-class EV power train, borrowed from the Leaf, and has a class leading cargo area for its size, offering effective running costs and sustainability to the future business world.
