This is some good news. We need more of this.
On a side note, I have seen several Nissan Leaf’s in Auckland lately and as announced earlier, Silvia Park has a charging station for them.
Grimshaw Lane Dairy in Ormskirk has taken delivery of four e-NV200 vans from Crosby Park Nissan in Liverpool and is using them to make its daily deliveries to homes and businesses in and around the town.
The four vehicles – named Tilly, Bovine, Ermintrude and Daisy by the drivers – have replaced a fleet of aging diesels and each covers around 50 miles a day making roughly 500 deliveries apiece and saving £900 a month in fuel bills.
Managing Director Andrew Brown, is delighted since making the switch: “Switching to the Nissan e-NV200 was a no brainer for us. Basically the savings we’re making on the fuel have paid for the contract hire on the vans and we’ll be saving on the maintenance too. We’ve effectively got four new vans for what we’d have been spending on fuel.”
