Zero Emission (???) campervans from Nissan Spain.

20 Jun

This web article appeared a short while ago on YouTube. It all looks great but I have to again challenge this Marketing hype about vehicles being ” Zero Emissions”. Total nonsense of course They have to receive battery charge from some source and unless it’s from purely solar, then emssions in generarting the electrical energy will result in emissions. Don’t think Nuclear power is clean either. Firstly consider the HUGE amounts of energy used in creating VAST amounts of concrete cement and then of course what can happen environmentally if things go wrong. For example Chernobyl and Fukishima to name but two incidents. Say that quickly, the consequences of such events are enormous and very, very long lived. Google nuclear half life for evidence. Pure science by the way, not opinion.

   Chernobyl 30 years ago.

   Fukishima Disaster. Mans foolishness again through poor judgement.

Still enjoying Pacific Tuna without any worries ? Was that veg that you ate today grown in a fallout zone created 30 years ago with hundreds of years left ticking away in nuclear half life degradation?

    Hi. I live in the same village as you and have just put a deposit on a 2015 nv200 combi.

    Since putting the deposit on the van people keep telling me they are terrible for long distances. How do you find it bearing in mind you go everywhere in yours.

    P.s I know I’m being cheeky but I’d love to have a look at your conversion some time

      Hi Tom, you are welcome to pop in and tour my Kampa. Preferably when I don’t have a paint brush in one hand ! To be blunt, I find the comment very inaccurate in the extreme. The NV200 in converted form or as a Combi is very comfortable, quiet enough and relaxing on the longest of journeys. We have “done” France, Scotland and the far South West and East of the UK. Buy it mate, without concern.

        I’m really looking forward to it.
        Where is best to get a towbar fitted
        (For towing dinghys)

    Mine was fitted when the van was new, by Nissan. You may be surprised by their prices ( either v high or maybe reasonable) otherwise try Towtal, Sutherland Road, Longton. There are also mobile towbar fitters you could try.
