BRISTOL Airport has landed its second electric vehicle thanks to the help from an award-winning car dealership in the city.
Wessex Garages’ Nissan brand centre, based at Cribbs Causeway, provided another fully-electric, Nissan e-NV200 Combi van to the Airport to help it ‘go green’ for 2016.
Kate Hancock, Nissan business specialist at Wessex Garages, said: ‘We’re delighted we could once again help Bristol Airport in their bid to go more environmentally-friendly. The Nissan e-NV200 is the most economical, commercial vehicle ever produced. It has been designed to be quiet, quick, comfortable, clean and cost-efficient for businesses.
‘This is the second Nissan e-NV200 Combi van we have provided the airport and this time they also decided to purchase a Nissan Qashqai. The Airport enquired about a used Qashqai as they thought they only had enough money for something used but with the business discounts we could provide them they decided to go for a brand new vehicle instead.’
The Nissan e-NV200 combines the NV200 – formerly International Van of the Year – with the proven technology of the record breaking Nissan LEAF, the world’s bestselling electric car.
Martin Fisher, motor transport manager at Bristol Airport, said: ‘Sustainability is a key focus for us and we are always looking to explore technology which can help us reduce our impact on the local environment.’
Hancock added: ‘We have worked hard over the past 12 months implementing electric vehicles into local businesses that surround us here in Bristol and it’s a pleasure to be working with big organisations such as the Airport, City of Bristol College, Bristol City Council and the BRI as well as smaller businesses in the area.’
Wessex Garages specialises in new and used car sales across South Wales and the South West.
