UK e-NV200 gets priced at £

We've talked about the e-NV200 and whether it would make sense for an e-City Express. A lot of people were saying that the added cost of the hybrid power train would make it not a very good seller. People have budgets to work within and the extra cash for that just doesn't make sense for business owners.

The e-NV200 was priced at £13,393. That price is assuming you choose the "Flex" battery leasing option, and the £5,000 Plug In Car Grant offered by the government. To buy the NV-200 without the Flex plan would cost £16,526 (grant included).

So it seems as though the e-NV200 is actually cheaper than the base petrol model once you factor in all of the incentives you get. The base NV200 diesel van starts at £13,590.

Do you think it would be possible to bring an e-City Express to the US if there were sufficient incentives offered? Does the US government also offer such incentives?

The electric vehicle market seems to be growing at a good rate in America, i can see them bringing it to the U.S. being a good idea.

So much of it relies on government subsidies though. Its fine for the consumer but it doesn't really say very much for electric vehicles. If they were so great then the government shouldn't have to incentivize them in order to get people to buy them.

That is true, but I guess maybe they figured since it's high priced and people are less likely to get them if it was all up to them then the movement to go "green" wouldn't be so strong. might be their way to make a push
