Nissan and AVIS Denmark have signed a deal to create a fleet of Nissan electric vehicles with a new order of 401 Nissan e-NV200 vans and a further 60 units of the 100-percent electric Nissan LEAF.
In 2014, AVIS ordered 400 Nissan LEAF electric cars and, after successfully placing them through its leasing scheme, has added the Nissan e-NV200 electric light commercial and passenger vehicle variants to its offering. In addition, to continue to meet demand in the Danish market, the company has ordered an additional 60 Nissan LEAF models, bringing its total EV fleet to date to 861 vehicles.
“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,” said AVIS Denmark Managing Director Kasper Gjedsted.
Director of Electric Vehicles for Nissan Europe Jean-Pierre Diernaz believes the deal is a clear demonstration of the trust companies have in Nissan electric vehicles.
“We are very happy to be working with AVIS again to create a lease offering for customers in Denmark. With big companies like AVIS in Denmark and DHL in Italy placing significant orders for Nissan electric vehicles we can see that more people are realising the unique combination of driving comfort, low running costs and zero emissions is very appealing,” he said.
