Advancing climate change, rising prices for fossil raw materials, or social responsibility: More and more logistics companies are turning to alternative drive options for their vehicles that meet the demand for sustainability. But there are a few things to consider when choosing electric vehicles. We have compiled a selection of electric light commercial vehicles from different manufacturers that are currently available on the market.
Every company has individual requirements for electric vehicles, depending on how often and how long they are used and the distances they cover per day. But one thing is crucial for all: vehicle availability, charging status and range. Car manufacturers have also recently recognized this and are relying on large batteries and a lot of power, especially in the commercial vehicles and van sector.
Anyone who integrates e-vehicles into their fleet or switches completely to e-mobility should by no means be without a fleet and charging management system. Electric vehicles are large consumers of electricity, but with the right charging management, high electricity costs due to peak loads can be avoided. E-cars can be charged according to demand and in an environmentally friendly manner. Fleet management provides control and insight into the fleet.
In this article, we look at the range, performance, battery charging time and payload of individual electric vans.
The Citroën ë-Jumpy is ideal for electric driving in the city and in the countryside. It is available in 3 lengths: XS (4.60 m), M (4.95 m) and XL (5.30 m). It has a load volume of up to 6,600 liters.
The Ford E-Transit is available in three heights and three lengths in different variants. Its maximum cargo volume is 15,100 liters.
With its load capacity of up to 6,600 liters, the Mercedes eVito electric van is a specialist in accommodating cargo and is therefore of particular interest to suppliers.
The Nissan e-NV200 as a panel van has a robust and spacious interior, making it ideal for delivery services. It provides 4200 liters of cargo volume. Performance and range are designed for city or short-distance operation.
The Opel Vivaro-e is perfect for the last mile. It is available in 2 vehicle lengths (M: 4959 mm and L: 5,309 mm) and two battery sizes with a range of up to 328 km. Its cargo volume is up to 6,600 liters.
The Peugeot e-Expert is the technically equal electric brother of the Citroën ë-Jumpy and the Opel Vivaro-e, which is why the 3 models are often referred to as the electric trio. Like the e-Jumpy, the e-Expert is available in 3 lengths – XS (4.60 m), M (4.95 m) and XL (5.30 m). It provides a load volume of up to 6,600 liters.
On August 31, 2023, the environmental bonus for commercial applicants ends; after that, only private individuals can apply for the environmental bonus. The purchase of purely electric vehicles will be subsidized by 3,000 to 4,500 euros from January 2023, depending on the purchase price. However, anyone who still wants to benefit from the environmental bonus should not hesitate for long, as at least 6 months should be calculated for the delivery period.
