Top 5 Electric Vans

Not only is it essential for commuters to have access to electric cars, but also for businesses and sole traders to have access to a van. Delivery people, mobile technicians, electricians, and many more rely in fact on large-capacity vehicles.

As the electric market develops and the low-emission zones grow, the need for electric vans increases. Here are the top 5 electric vans available at Perrys.

Vauxhall Vivaro

Going electric means no emissions, no congestion charge, and no road tax payments, enabling you to travel through cities with ease. There are two battery options, the smaller offering 143 miles and the larger 205 miles. You can top up the Vivaro to 80% at any rapid charging point in 30-45 minutes. The instant torque makes easy work of the 1226kg payload capacity and 1000kg towing weight. With twin-opening rear doors, nearside, and offside slide doors, it gives you plenty of space to load and unload. The Vivaro Dynamic has added driving aid technology as well, including rear parking sensors and cruise control. The Vivaro Elite model comes with all the benefits of the Dynamic with added lane departure warning, blind spot assist, front and back parking sensors, and a panoramic rear-view camera allowing for optimum visibility.
