What Electric Vans Do We Offer?

As we’ve covered previously, by 2050, every car and van will need to be zero-emission at the tailpipe. Manchester is also launching a ‘Clean Air Zone‘ (CAZ) next year to help tackle the air pollution problem. If it all sounds complicated, don’t worry,  we’re well-positioned at CoolKit to help you navigate this new landscape comfortably and efficiently.

We can offer a variety of environmentally friendly alternative solutions. We offer popular Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV’s), which use rechargeable high voltage batteries. We also offer, the not so common, plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), which can be charged externally or whilst being driven.

Investing in a BEV can bring many benefits and can be a great decision when considering the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). The following factors represent the benefits of investing in an electric vehicle and how it can be more affordable in the long run than diesel-engine alternatives:

  • In some cases, a Plug-In Van Grant is offered to discount the cost of the van.
  • Lower ‘fuel’ costs. 
  • Zero/reduced vehicle tax.
  • Charge exemption from increasingly popular charging zones including Ultra Low Emission Zone, Zero Emission Zone and Clean Air Zone.
  • Substantially extended service intervals.
  • Improved reliability.
  • Constant innovation and vehicle variety.

We’ve also invested in vital electric research, so we can convert BEV’s and PHEV’s into highly functional, reliable and durable refrigerated vehicles.

We’ve currently built innovative electric solutions for:

  • Mercedes-Benz eSprinter
  • Nissan eNV200
  • Renault Kangoo ZE
  • Renault Master ZE
  • SAIC Maxus eDeliver3

In conjunction with every electric van conversion we offer, we advise the installation of telemetry systems. These provide the owner or fleet manager with real insight into the live status of the fleet. As an example – this real-time information will enable fleet managers to re-route drivers another way after having a preview of how much power is available.

Whichever application you choose can be customised to your needs. We’ll always provide guidance and advice. After all, we’re now recognised as true sector specialists.
