Nissan has been named Electric Vehicle Manufacturer of the Year for the second year running by industry title, GreenFleet.
Nissan was recognised for its leadership of the electric vehicle sector and, in particular, for its efforts to support and increase electric vehicle usage in the fleet sector.
And there was more good news as three of the brand’s EV customers – eConnect Taxis, Jersey Post and Cambridge University – were also honoured.
EVs For The Masses
Presenting Nissan’s award, Colin Boynton, of GreenFleet, said: “Nissan continues to lead the way when it comes to taking electric motoring to the masses. With new battery technology and improved range, it offers an award-winning line-up of electric vehicles that warrants us, once again, naming the brand our EV Manufacturer of the Year.”
Receiving the award, Karl Anders, of Nissan Motor (GB), said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have won this prestigious award for the second time in succession. We pride ourselves in leading the way in the fleet industry with our EV range, and this award is great recognition of our continued effort.”
Nissan was delighted to celebrate wins for three key partner fleets , too, all of whom have led the way with Nissan electric vehicles. eConnect Cars of London, which operates a fleet of all-electric Nissan LEAFs, was named Private Hire/Taxi Company of the Year. Meanwhile, Jersey Post was named Private Sector Fleet of the Year after adding 15 Nissan e-NV200 vans to its fleet of delivery vehicles. And Cambridge University won the Public Sector Fleet of the Year award. The University has a fleet of five Nissan e-NV200s with a further two under conversion.
