Portsmouth naval base gets electric van fleet

A fleet of 48 all-electric Nissan e-NV200 Combis have arrived at Portsmouth Naval Base in a deal with BAE Systems who manage the site on behalf of the Royal Navy.

26 charging points and 28 designated parking bays for electric vehicles are also being installed.

The result will be that the 100 per cent electric Nissan vans will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by around 40 per cent in comparison with the previous vehicle fleet.

In total, the conversion of more than a third of BAE Systems’ vehicle fleet to Nissan’s e-NV200 Combis will save £360,000 in fuel and other costs over the duration of the contract.

Ian Anderton, integrated delivery director at BAE Systems, said: “We have worked closely with Lex Autolease and Nissan to introduce this new fleet that makes a significant reduction to carbon dioxide emissions and respects our customers need for a value for money solution.

“The reduced emissions and fuel use by replacing nearly half of the fleet with Nissan electric vehicles would have a significant environmental impact on Portsmouth Naval Base.

“The arrival of such a large number of Nissan electric vehicles to support our activities at the Naval Base reiterates the company’s commitment to creating more energy efficient ways of working and adopting the latest technologies.”
