While more expensive to purchase than similar diesel models, adopting electric vans can save you money on fuel and tax and significantly reduce your fleet’s carbon and nitrogen dioxide emissions.
The number of electric van models available and their ranges are increasing, making them an increasingly practical choice, especially when replacing vehicles under 3.5 tonnes.
Energy Saving Trust’s guide on Lowering van emissions and costs includes information on different models of electric van, pointers on identifying where they could fit into your fleet and building a business case, plus case studies.
