Free Transport on tap

A leading North West plumbing and heating company has miles of free, zero emissions transport on tap after taking delivery of two all-electric Nissan e-NV200 vans.

APG Domestic Services ordered the multi award-winning models – supplied by Preston Nissan dealer Fred Coupe – for engineers operating across Lancashire and Greater Manchester. The Leyland-based company, which also specialises in renewables, has installed solar panels to provide all the electricity needed to charge the vehicles for free. That’s allowed the company to replace two of its aging vans – a Vauxhall Vivaro and Ford Transit Connect – with brand new Nissan e-NV200s with a full manufacturer warranty and still save around £80 per month. It now plans to gradually replace the remainder of its 17-strong fleet.

Peter Gerrard, Managing Director of APG Domestic Services, said:

“There’s really no down side for us, most of our jobs are within a 40 miles radius of our offices – easily within the range of the e-NV200 – and the fact we can reach them all for free is saving the business a small fortune.”

He added: “In recent years we also moved into renewable technologies like solar thermal and solar PV and having our engineers in a zero emissions vehicle represents our business well and reflects our ethos.”

Launched last year, the Nissan e-NV200 combines the NV200  – a former International Van of the Year  – with the proven technology of the record breaking Nissan LEAF – the world’s bestselling electric car.

In addition to ultra low running costs, users also benefit from low maintenance costs that make for unrivalled total cost of ownership – £1,200 lower than a conventional diesel van over four years. Meanwhile, the model, which is priced from £13,393 in panel van form (incorporating PiVG) offers a class-leading 4.2m3 capacity and an impressive 703kg payload. What’s more, the e-NV200 can cover 106* miles on a single charge and can be charged from zero to 80% in as little as 30 minutes. Charged using mains electricity rather than solar panels, the e-NV200 costs just two pence per mile to run.

John Coupe, Director at Fred Coupe Nissan, said:

“The Nissan e-NV200 is perfect for businesses like APG Domestic Services. The unbeatable Total Cost of Ownership of the model means business van users can replace aging and inefficient vehicles with a brand new, highly specced and highly capable alternative and still save money.”
