The expanding segment of electric vehicles reflects also inside one of the biggest fleet renters in Europe. Avis is renowned for its new cars and for its open mind clients, who want to try the most recent cars launched on the market.
Among them, also the most recent electric vehicles, especially the clients in the northern part of Europe. This is the reason Avis Denmark decided to buy some new electric vehicles to complete its fleet.
In 2014 Avis ordered 400 Nissan Leaf electric cars and after successfully placing them through its leasing scheme has added the Nissan e-NV200 electric light commercial and passenger vehicle variants to its offering.
Now, Nissan and Avis Denmark have signed a deal to create the largest fleet of Nissan electric vehicles anywhere in Europe, with a new order of 401 Nissan e-NV200 vans and a further 60 units of the 100 percent electric Nissan Leaf. This new order brings its total EV fleet to date to 861 vehicles.

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."
