British Gas has successfully ended its six-month winter trial of 28 Nissan e-NV200 vans and has placed immediate order for 50 units, with 50 more bound for delivery by the end of the calendar year.

The six-month pilot that started in November 2013 had Nissan and British Gas collaborate with Hitachi Capital Commercial Vehicle Solutions to manage the fleet operations and Gateshead College to train drivers in how to drive the e-NV200. Hitachi Capital will provide funding for the purchase as well as manage the fleet of all-electric vehicles.

During the trial, the 28 e-NV200s covered over 60,000 miles between them. The pilot was launched to evaluate how the vans performed in winter conditions during typical British Gas home services daily usage patterns. Paul Kidd, a British Gas Service & Repair engineer, remarked that the Nissan e-NV200 made driving between customer’s homes “a little bit easier.”

Nissan has presented the Nissan NV200 and the e-NV200 concept as Barcelona’s next generation taxi, paving the way for zero emission vehicles in Spain as well as boosting local production in the area for the automotive sector. The presentation of the new Barcelona NV200 taxi and of the future model for New York was attended by Barcelona mayor Xavier Trias and deputy mayor Antoni Vives.

It was also attended by Jordi Vila, Fleet and Commercial Vehicle general manager at Nissan Europe, and Francisco Sauco, Fleet and Commercial Vehicle manager at Nissan Iberia. The NV200, a new-generation compact van, is well-suited for a wide variety of uses for customers not only in Barcelona and New York, but also around the world.

Nissan first rolled out the NV200 in Japan and Europe in 2009, and has since made the model available in over 40 countries, including China, India, and Indonesia. The Japanese carmaker has so far sold over 135,000 units around the world.

Nissan has been lending the e-NV200 to companies like FedEx and Coca-Cola to get feedback about the emissions-free delivery van as a delivery vehicle before it starts selling in late 2013 or early 2014. Nissan said that the all electric cargo van sent to Coca-Cola Central Japan Co., Ltd., will be used as a regional sales vehicle in Yokohama.

The van will be charged overnights to test if one night of charging is enough for daily use. The e-NV200 uses the all-electric powertrain found in the Nissan Leaf. This powertrain is then used on Nissan’s NV200 utility vehicle. Nissan will retrieve the companies’ comments about the e-NV200 so that it could still make modifications before it goes on sale.

"Providing a large, multi-functional interior space to both business and private users, the e-NV200 commercial EV will deliver innovation in the commercial vehicle market and further Nissan’s leadership in the EV market. Combining the advanced powertrain of the Nissan LEAF with the innovative and practical NV200 base vehicle will not only deliver zero CO2 emissions, but also superior acceleration and quietness. In addition, e-NV200 has class-leading levels of operating costs, one of the most critical factors for businesses using commercial vehicles." said the press release.

Nissan is out to prove itself as a global leader in zero-emission mobility by combining the best features of its two multi-award winning vehicles -- Nissan LEAF and Nissan NV200 – to create the Nissan e-NV200 concept panel van. Nissan gave the e-NV200 concept panel van its international debut at the ongoing 64th Hanover Motor Show 2012, giving the public a preview of what to expect when the production version is rolled out possibly next year.

The e-NV200 concept panel van boasts of a cutting-edge all-electric drivetrain based on the advanced laminated lithium-ion battery and electric motor that powers the Nissan LEAF. This provides the e-NV200 with a driving range and performance comparable to Nissan LEAF. This will allow drivers to recharge the battery of their e-NV200 panel vans to 80 percent capacity in just 30 minutes for a minimal downtime, owing to its Quick Charge capability.

The e-NV200’s all-electric drivetrain will also be much cheaper to operate with lower fuel costs and reduced regular maintenance. An operator of e-NV200 could use the power stored in the battery to run electric tools and equipment up to 6,000W. This means that an e-NV200 operator could transform a suitably equipped panel van into a mobile restaurant or a mobile workshop.

Nissan revealed that its plant in Barcelona will start to produce the e-NV200, a 100% electric compact van, in the 2013 Financial Year. This new model will be a vital entry to its lineup of light commercial vehicles (LCV's) around the world. The current heavily-awarded NV200 is built at the plant and will be used as the base for the new model.

The e-NV200 is expected to be the No. 2 all-electric vehicle after Nissan had launched the Nissan LEAF in 2010, emphasizing Nissan’s longer-term commitment to zero emission mobility. Nissan has invested €100 million in Spain for this new model. It is likely to form about 700 new jobs at the plant and across its local supplier base. The Barcelona plant will be the only one to produce the e-NV200.

These vehicles will be supplied to markets around the world to cite the rising competitiveness of Nissan's Spanish industrial operations. Last week, Nissan's Avila Plant in central Spain was given the task of producing a new medium duty truck.

Beginning July 2011, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. will be conducting global proving tests on an electric vehicle (EV) that is based on the compact commercial vehicle NV200. The first phase will have the Japan Post Service Co., Ltd. do the test in Japan commencing in July. This company is based in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, and is headed by Shinichi Nabekura, its President and Chief Executive Officer.

For two months, the test vehicle will accomplish postal collection and delivery tasks in the city of Yokohama, Kanagawa prefecture. This test will assess its capabilities when being used under the typical conditions of the customer. Proving tests will then follow in Japan and Europe at other companies.

Nissan Corporate Vice President Hideto Murakami, who is responsible for the Global LCV Business Unit, said that zero emissions vehicles could have a major role in finding the balance between economic growth and environmental protection in logistics. He said that the customer feedback from these proving tests will be used for future product development. He is confident that the commercial electric vehicles, which are based on the NV200, will give the customers' business a boost and this will also lead to the “development of a sustainable society.”

Nissan North America Inc. plans to penetrate the commercial van business in the U.S. by directly taking on the main players (Ford Motor Co. and General Motors Co.) What Nissan considers as its edge is that its van is a new design, while Ford's and GM's vehicles have older van platforms.

The market of workhorse vans -- the large, boxy cargo vehicles preferred by house painters, electricians and florists -- is dominated by Ford and GM.

Both controlled 96% of the U.S. full-sized commercial van segment in 2010 with the Ford E series and the GMC Savana and Chevrolet Express.
