NICE Nice Ze-O (2008–)

What to watch out for

Went into administration December 2008.

London’s electric vehicle specialist, NICE Car Company, has resumed trading as the London sales arm of AIXAM-MEGA Ltd, maker of the MEGA e-City electric passenger vehicle and the MEGA Multitruck range of ultra-light electric and diesel commercial vehicles.

AIXAM-MEGA Ltd acquired the assets of NICE after it went into administration in November and has confirmed that the terms of ownership for existing customers will remain unaffected, with warranties remaining intact.

Following the closure of the NICE showroom in West London, AIXAM-MEGA Ltd will operate NICE as a direct sales arm for the London area. A servicing facility and small admin office will continue in Ladbroke Grove, whilst all other administrative tasks will be performed from AIXAM-MEGA Ltd’s headquarters in Rugby, Warwickshire.

Well established owners

AIXAM-MEGA Ltd is the UK subsidiary of the French AIXAM-MEGA company, which makes and distributes a range of innovative light weight vehicles worldwide. Outside London, the MEGA branded e-City car and Multitruckranges, as well as AIXAM branded small lightweight passenger vehicles, are sold and serviced via a network of specialist dealers and aftercare outlets.

Lawrence Holland, general manager of AIXAM-MEGA Ltd, said: “We are fully committed to developing the market for ultra-light electric private and commercial vehicles across the UK, and regard NICE as an important part of our growing sales network.

“We have retained the key aspects of the NICE car operation, enabling us to make the transfer of business as seamless as possible. MEGA drivers should be reassured that, from their perspective, it is now ‘business as normal’ at NICE Car”.
