PROVING that high mileage isn’t a problem for electric vehicles, trade plate delivery team from Shoreham Vehicle Auctions has seen its Nissan eNV200 seven-seat minibus hit the 150,000 mile mark this month.
And the auction house’s all-electric Nissan is still going strong, says the business, transporting plate drivers around the south of England to collect vehicles from vendors and deliver cars to dealers.
The team says it gets between 80-100 miles from a charge, which enables them to travel to London from Shoreham and back again in one journey.
SVA has installed 16 electric chargers at its Shoreham auction centre powered by a bank of 135 solar panels generating 50kW of energy. The Nissan charges overnight from the renewable energy generated from Shoreham’s 1,850 hours of sunshine each year. 80% of SVA’s company car and minibus fleet is now electric as it looks to accelerate its Road to Zero emissions.
Alex added that minibus was making a number of shorter trips, too, which were perfect for electric power and its running costs were low.
