AVIS Denmark orders 401 Nissan e-NV200 vans and 60 more LEAFs; largest fleet of Nissan EVs in Europe
Nissan and AVIS Denmark have signed a deal to create the largest fleet of Nissan electric vehicles anywhere in Europe, with a new order of 401 Nissan e-NV200 vans and a further 60 units of the battery-electric Nissan LEAF, brining its total EV fleet to date to 861 vehicles.
In 2014 AVIS ordered 400 Nissan LEAF electric cars and after successfully placing them through its leasing scheme.
We had great success already with the Nissan LEAF in Denmark and we leased all of the units we purchased from Nissan very quickly, which has led to us ordering more. To follow up that success we have decided to add the e-NV200 vehicle to broaden our offering and appeal to new types of customers.—AVIS Denmark Managing Director, Kasper Gjedsted
Nissan is the world’s largest manufacturer of electric vehicles with the Nissan LEAF claiming its spot as the best-selling EV in Europe and globally in 2014. Last year Nissan added the e-NV200 passenger and light commercial vehicle to the range, combining the space of the NV200 van with the powertrain of the Nissan LEAF.
