Energy firm Scottish Power has added ten electric Nissan e-NV200 vans to its fleet.
Six of the vans were delivered via the Western Nissan dealership in Edinburgh for operations in Scotland, while others will be deployed in areas including Merseyside and Caernarfon.
The vans are being used for electricity distribution grid maintenance, and join 25 Nissan Leaf electric cars on Scottish Power’s fleet.
Scottish Power fleet manager John Moore said he was now planning an order for further e-NV200s.
He said: “The e-NV200 suits our needs and fits with the Scottish Power approach of focusing on wind energy, smart grids and driving the change to a cleaner, electric future.
“The vans are excellent – the EV technology is superb and the range is very good. Range is key for us.”
Moore praised Nissan’s efforts to familiarise Scottish Power staff to EVs, which included a showcase event at the power company’s Glasgow HQ.
He said: “Nissan have been very supportive and it’s been good working with them.
‘Even those members of staff who were unsure about what the e-NV200 has to offer have come back with a big smile on their face after taking it for a drive.
"It’s a vehicle that’s certainly up to the job and we’re delighted to add this latest consignment to our fleet.”
