When it comes to zero-emissions vehicles, Nissan has delivered the perfect package to international logistics supplier DPD, with a new order for 300 all-electric e-NV200 vans for its UK operations.
DPD is one of the UK’s largest logistics companies, delivering over 250 million parcels every year. The all-electric, zero-emissions e-NV200s supplied by Nissan will help DPD advance its ambition to be the most responsible city center delivery provider and the leader in electric vehicles usage in the UK, with 10% of its delivery fleet to be fully electric by the end of 2020.
The order will triple the DPD’s current EV tally to 450, growing on the 91 Nissan e-NV200s the company has used for the past 18 months. The partnership strengthens the Nissan e-NV200’s status as a class-leading last-mile delivery vehicle, with a 40 kWh battery and other hardware shared with the world’s best-selling electric car, the Nissan LEAF. The e-NV200 can deliver range of up to 301 km on a City cycle*, according to the new Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP).
“As a model for Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the e-NV200 exemplifies Nissan’s commitment to building a more sustainable society,” said Soufiane Elkhomri, Light Commercial Vehicles general manager for Nissan Europe. “Supporting DPD in working towards carbon-neutral delivery with the e-NV200 marks a significant step towards achieving our goals.”
