At Cab Direct we are aware that private hire drivers are increasingly having to adhere to new regulations and requirements on vehicle emissions when looking for a new taxi for sale. This is particularly the case in city centre locations and especially in London where it is required for PHVs under 18 months old to be zero-emission capable (ZEC) and meet the Euro 6 emissions standard when licensed for the first time. With this in mind, we are delighted that we are now able to offer a zero-emissions MPV, the Nissan eNV200 Combi, as a taxi for sale – complete with our exclusive taxi trade discount.
The eNV200 Combi sits in a class of its own and just some of its stand out features specific to the taxi industry include the ability to carry up to six seated passengers and the reliable technology synonymous with the Nissan brand.
With a range of up to 187 miles*, the Nissan eNV200 Combi can take you further than ever on a single charge, providing you with the ability to work for longer and maximise on your income. When you run out, simply charge at home or on the road. Fitting a wall box at home means you will be able to fast charge and reach full capacity in 7.5 hours with the 6.6kW onboard charger and alternatively, a domestic plug point will provide full battery capacity in around 21.5hours. The rapid charger provided with the vehicle will equip you with up to 80% in 60 minutes while on the go, utilising one of the ever-expanding network of charging points. There are over 13,000 chargers and 1,300 rapid chargers in the UK currently in places like motorway service stations, shopping centres and Nissan dealers – and this number is continually increasing.
The fact that this engine is ZEC is hugely important in London, the first major UK city to implement ZEC capable requirements for new PH Vehicles being used in the area. With emissions regulations increasingly becoming stricter in other major cities like Manchester, Birmingham and Edinburgh in the near future, you can relax in the knowledge that your vehicle will pass the requirements as they are implemented. Even better, the eNV200 Combi is exempt from the London Congestion Charge, so if you’re driving in the capital during the week, you’ll save £11.50 per day!
* Combined Max WLTP and city cycles
The electric engine is smooth and quiet, bringing a kind of peace to your shift and the low gravity centre and tight turning circle make for a superior driving experience.
Inside, this great car benefits from increased space to make sure for a comfortable ride, regardless of how long your shift. Nissan has incorporated several clever storage solutions, perfect for cabbies. There’s an impressive 13 areas for storage in total including under-seat drawers and a deep centre console.
The technology inside the car is second to none. The intelligent instrument panel found behind the steering wheel allows you to find out everything you need to know on range, charge and energy use.
Passengers in the eNV200 will be as comfortable as you will. There’s a low step-in height for ease of entry and exit, a fold-up tray table with a cup holder and remote interior temperature control.
Outside the cabin, features like daytime running lights and glazed tailgates make sure that the vehicle does not scrimp on style and despite the capacity to take up to six passengers, boot space is not compromised. You will easily fit passengers’ luggage with the 443 load space below the tonneau cover.
There are a choice of three models available – the entry-level Visia incorporating all of the above features, the Accenta with additional benefits such as fog lights, cruise control and a reversing camera and the Elavia which adds styling features like colour-coded bumpers and alloys.
