Why Electric Vans?

Many people are making the switch to electric vehicles; find out how they can benefit your business and why electric vans make a good investment.

​Many businesses are becoming more aware of the impact their practices have on the environment, especially if you work in an area like the construction or automotive industry. Environmental concerns are changing the way many businesses operate and electric vehicles are going to play an increasingly prominent role in the UK van market over the next few years.

What is an electric van?

Electric vans (and all-electric vehicles) use an electric motor for power, instead of an internal combustible engine. A traction battery pack powers the electric motor and vans are recharged by plugging into a charging station or wall outlet.

Electric vans offer many benefits and we’re proud to stock a wide range of vehicles from leading manufacturers including Nissan, Renault, and Ford. If you’ve been thinking about adding some new vehicles to your fleet…

Here are 5 reasons why electric vans should be considered

01

Lower running costs

Electric vans are cheaper to run compared to their diesel alternatives. So, you’ll save money on the running costs over time. The cost per mile of electricity is impressively low. In fact, some electric vans costing as little as 2 to 3p per mile to run.

02

Environmentally friendly

Electric vans produce zero tailpipe emissions. This cuts down on levels of harmful gases like CO2 and nitric oxide. As a result of fewer emissions, air quality improves. This is especially helpful in dense urban areas.

03

Cheaper to maintain

Electric vehicles use fewer moving parts. As a result, you’re less likely to need costly maintenance and repairs. Electric vans put less strain on the breaks. So, you’re unlikely to need regular maintenance or replacements.

04

Easy to drive

When you run a business, time is money. So, you want a fleet of vehicles that’s fast, efficient, and easy to drive. Electric vehicles are much simpler to drive. In comparison to diesel or petrol cars, there’s no need to change gears. They’re also much more pleasant to drive. Electric motors are almost silent for a calm, smooth driving experience.

Future proofing

Image is important. Show your competitors that you’ve got your finger on the pulse by investing in electric vehicles early. Climate change is becoming an ever more pressing issue. The UK government has set a target to end the sale of all diesel and petrol cars by 2040, roughly. Invest in electric vehicles now to reduce your business emissions. And, to show that you’re one step ahead.
