This. There's loads of ENV200s around here used for things like shops to pick up stock or do deliveries, and most trades don't have to go far for their customers here either. This has a load more payload and space, and the lease is cheap. There's loads of people it would suit.
How many seats does this have
Lol, that's so HUKD. I was once getting fed up with leccy bills so speculated, as I am not metered for water, perhaps I could run the water all the time & rig up some mini hydro generator to provide me with electricity that way! Don't think the flow was ever suitably high, but perhaps might work for some. Perhaps even get a diesel generator & run in on red diesel for absolute cost effectiveness ha!
Before what I do now, I only travelled between local towns, about 20miles from base, and with planning could stay and travel in a single town to do the stuff I did. So with a decent lunchtime at a charging point, 82 miles range (if true) would just about be fine. I can see the merit for some - but I think it's worth waiting as next-gen vans are looking better in terms of mileage and bound to get cheaper as more enter the market. Now I travel across the country, it's simply not close to being suitable. And TBH, I can't see how an electric van will ever suit a tradesman like me - I can do 500 miles in a day, and even if they improve vastly before the diesel/ petrol phase-out, it's very hard to see how they can provide mileage to suit. I suspect an alternative will come into play for long-range commercial vehicles such as Hydrogen, as will be the norm in countries like Japan who are shunning electric due to limitations in the Cities In any case, I think people are mad investing in commercial EV at this points - I do think they will play a part, but with every new generation will see (and is seeing) vast improvements, these early models are going to be weak in comparison to both milage and cost so are going to depreciate like a rock (maybe not issues with leasing). It is such a fast-moving market at the moment, it's hard to see what is coming around the corner, I'd rather wait for the market to expand and steady a tad, and also see what other options become available
BIK is flat rate on vans.
