Facilities company deploys 100-strong Nissan van fleet

Global facilities management company Atalian Servest has become one of the first UK fleets to take delivery of Nissan’s new NV250 compact vans following an order for 100 vehicles.

The fleet of 100 Nissan NV250 vans will bring added versatility to the Atalian Servest fleet

The firm offers fully outsourced, integrated solutions for companies and the new NV250 vans will support its work, in areas including catering, cleaning, technical services, projects and security.

The new NV250 compact vans, part of Atalian Servest’s fleet renewal programme, were chosen for their size, price and low running costs.

The NV250, launched late last year as the replacement to the NV200, is available with a payload of up to 800kg and comes in two body lengths. Atalian Servest has opted for the long-wheelbase panel van. It’s fitted with a 1.5-litre diesel designed to reduce fleet running costs thanks to optimised fuel efficiency.

It also offers a host of Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies, including Hill Start Assist and the manufacturer’s Extended Grip switchable traction control system.

Glen Napper, head of procurement for the UK & Ireland at Atalian Servest, said: “The Nissan LCV range is an excellent fit for Atalian Servest and these particular vehicles offer great versatility. They are a welcome addition to our fleet and complement a batch of fully electric Nissan e-NV200 vehicles delivered earlier in the year.”

Karen Reid, Nissan’s corporate sales manager for Scotland and the north of England, added: “This is a great indication of the popularity we can expect to see from NV250, and it’s no surprise with its great combination of space, technology and Nissan’s five-year warranty.

“It also performs exceptionally well against its competitors in terms of total cost of ownership – this is helped by its excellent residual values plus low service, maintenance and repair costs.”
