I'm just curious as to how many people on this forum are planning to buy a brand new...

Re: New UK designed electric van

So far we've had a great response from prospective purchasers. The feedback we are getting on our truck is that people love the fact that it is obviously electric, rather than just an 'ordinary' white van, they love the fact that they can swap the batteries rather than park up whilst the vehicle rec...

Re: New UK designed electric van

We're running test drives with one of our pre-production vehicles in London next week. If anyone wants to book a test-drive slot, you'll have to move because they're booking up fast. Drop me a private message with your e-mail address and I will send you details.

Re: New UK designed electric van

It's a milkfloat! How conventional can it get? :lol: The real benefit of it is that anyone can look at it and understand its function straight away. Nobody is going to say "it's no good, I can't drive from London to Edinburgh in it", because one glance will tell you everything you need to ...

Re: New UK designed electric van

There will be more information on the truck later this month. Price-wise, it is similar in cost to a diesel Ford Transit or Mercedes Sprinter, with a superior payload. Its designed as an inner-city delivery vehicle - so don't expect to see them racing down the motorway, but they would be ideal for d...

Recommendations for a 'dry' lead acid battery for EV use

The vehicle runs at 72 volts, with a peak power drain of 125 amps and a typical ...
