Nissan trialing eNV200 in Portland

13 June 2014

Nissan is working in collaboration with Portland (Oregon) General Electric (PGE) on a six-week trial to help determine the viability of an electric commercial vehicle in the US market. PGE has assigned the e-NV200 into its fleet of vehicles with an underground crew, replacing a larger, diesel-powered van.

This year, Nissan is deploying two e-NV200 prototypes with companies such as PGE and FedEx in top US EV markets including California, Georgia, Oregon and Washington, DC to determine how businesses could use an all-electric cargo van to meet their day-to-day requirements.

Portland is one of the first markets to receive Nissan’s “No Charge to Charge” promotion, which provides two years of no-cost public charging to customers who purchase or lease a new Nissan LEAF beginning 1 April 2014.

Oregon has been a top five market for Nissan LEAF sales in the U.S. due to proactive policies at the state level to encourage EV adoption, as well as robust charging infrastructure championed by the state and others like PGE. If we determine that e-NV200 fits into the US commercial vehicle market, we expect that Portland would be a leading driver for sales as well.

—Toby Perry, Nissan’s director of EV Marketing in the US

Nissan e-NV200 goes on sale this summer in Europe and later this year in Japan. Following Nissan LEAF, e-NV200 is the second EV that Nissan is offering in certain global markets.
