ScottishPower is deploying 10 electric Nissan e-NV200 vans ahead of the arrival of further electric vehicles in the future.
The initial consignment of vans arrives this month and further electric vans will follow, in line with ScottishPower’s long-term eco goals.
Six vans, which will be used north of the border, are being delivered via the Western Nissan dealership in Edinburgh, while others will be heading to areas such as Merseyside and Caernarfon; as well as serving Scotland, ScottishPower operates in the North West of England and North Wales.
The e-NV200s join the 1,000-plus ScottishPower vehicle fleet, which includes 25 Nissan Leafs and even a new electric bus.
Scottishpower fleet manager John Moore said: “The e-NV200 suits our needs and fits with the ScottishPower 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.”
