Latest vehicle order makes Avis largest EV fleet operator in Europe

The company has signed a deal with Nissan for 401 e-NV200 vans and 60 units of the Nissan LEAF. The new agreement follows last year’s order by Avis for 400 Nissan LEAF electric cars for its leasing scheme.

Avis Denmark now runs a total EV fleet of 861 vehicles.

Avis Denmark managing director, Kasper Gjedsted commented: "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."

Jean-Pierre Diernaz, director of electric vehicles for Nissan Europe, added: "We are very happy to be working with Avis again to create a lease offering for customers in Denmark. 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 realising the unique combination of driving comfort, low running costs and zero emissions is very appealing."
