Electric mobility is geting more and more important for British people. The current Nissan e-NV200 is one of the cars that will keep the city of Liverpool. The local transport executive has added three e-NV200 Combis to its fleet of 40 vehicles for use by maintenance teams.

The eNV200s are being used to transport workers and their tools around the Merseytravel estate including the various bus stations, three ferry terminals, seven tunnel ventilation stations and the two Mersey road tunnels: the Queensway and Kingsway.

With 90,000 vehicles crossing underneath the River Mersey every day, it’s Merseytravel’s job to ensure that the tunnels are effectively maintained.

Councillor Liam Robinson, Chair of Merseytravel, said: “Our vision is for electric and other low emission vehicles to play a role in developing a vibrant low carbon economy across the region. The introduction of more electric vehicles to our own fleet is another major step forward.”

Last year Merseytravel took an all-electric Nissan Leaf as one of its pool cars.
