Avis deploys Europe’s largest fleet of Nissan electric vehicles in Denmark

Nissan and AVIS Denmark have signed a deal to roll out the largest fleet of Nissan electric vehicles anywhere in Europe, with a new order of 401 Nissan e-NV200 light commercial vans and a further 60 units of the 100% electric Nissan Leaf. Combined with last year’s order of 400 Leaf electric cars, which were successfully placed through its leasing scheme, Avis EV fleet now totals 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 models, commenting: “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 realizing the unique combination of driving comfort, low running costs and zero emissions is very appealing.”

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.
