New partnership sees Nissan and Voltia launch the new e-NV200 XL Voltia electric van across Europe.
Paris / Bratislava, 7. May 2020 – Voltia, the European leader in electrified urban delivery, and global automaker Nissan have together launched the specialised e-NV200 XL Voltia electric van throughout Europe.
Expanding Nissan’s zero-emission light commercial vehicle (LCV) offering, the Nissan e-NV200 XL Voltia is optimised for urban last-mile delivery. At 8m³ load capacity, the new model features twice the load capacity of the standard e-NV200, easy rear-door access and standing room in the cargo bay.
Equipped with a 40kWh capacity traction battery and intelligent energy management technology, the e-NV200 XL Voltia reinforces Nissan’s commitment in leading the charge towards sustainable last-mile delivery. Voltia is ideally placed to advance this initiative, with manufacturing facilities in France, the UK and Slovakia able to produce up to 10,000 units for deployment across Europe.
Manuel Burdiel Alvaro, General Manager Europe, LCV Sales and Business Development, underlines the strategic significance of the cooperation: “The light commercial vehicle segment will play a key role in optimising urban last-mile delivery for a more sustainable future. Together with Voltia, we believe that the Nissan e-NV200 XL Voltia provides the perfect solution to achieve significant progress towards that goal.”
“Thanks to its competitive pricing, zero-emission electric power and 8m³ of versatile cargo space, the Nissan e-NV200 XL Voltia is designed from the ground-up to support increasing e-commerce and last-mile delivery demand in cities throughout Europe,” Alvaro added.
Building on its original concept for the vehicle, Voltia’s partnership with Nissan is another international milestone, following successful deployments of the e-NV200 XL Voltia in Paris and London, in addition to recent production agreements in France and the UK.
“Partnering with a global automaker like Nissan truly reinforces the quality of our vehicles,” explains Juraj Ulehla, Managing Director of Voltia. “Our collaborative efforts reinforce our shared view that evolving the LCV segment will be crucial for facilitating cost-effective and sustainable end-to-end delivery, for large and small businesses alike.”
Leveraging a network of manufacturing partners, the vans will be produced in three European countries. Gruau will oversee production in the French Laval for Western Europe, whilst the Bevan Group in Wednesbury will facilitate manufacturing for the British Isles and Ireland. Hollen in Trnava, Slovakia, will assume responsiblity over production for Central and Eastern Europe.
Each of the manufacturers will continue to expand this integrated partnership, cooperating closely on marketing and associated activities across the Continent.
