Nissan e-NV200s drafted in for meals on wheels service

The local authority in south-east Wales is using the vans to deliver meals and tea trays to around 175 residents across an area of 126km2 every day.

The vans, which have been supplied through local Nissan dealer Wessex Garages, have replaced a fleet of aging Citroen diesels and will help the council save around £8,000 per year on fuel as well as making a major contribution towards the borough’s carbon reduction targets. The council also expects to make significant maintenance savings.

Councillor Anthony Hunt, deputy leader of Torfaen County Borough Council, said: “These vans offer a win-win situation for the council.

“Firstly, we expect to make fuel savings of around £8,000 per vehicle, per year which is a major benefit for the residents of Torfaen at a time when budgets are tight.

“Secondly the vehicles will have a significant impact as we look to reduce our carbon emissions and improve air quality in the county.”
