Electric cars have been the talk of the town for some time but there’s a buzz around right now for the wider choice of electric vans becoming available to drivers. We currently have a great deal on the e-Vivaro from Vauxhall and look at this van specifically below - but first we wanted to share a few benefits of choosing an electric van.
Firstly – it’s good for the environment, if you care about your businesses’ carbon footprint and green credentials, then electric is the way to go - it’s a great message to send to your customers. It’s also forward-thinking – you’ll be an early adopter of a ‘trend’ that will eventually (and really not too far down the line) become the norm.
There is now a good choice of electric vans either available or coming soon, so it’s likely your needs will be met in terms of size, range etc. Our team can talk you through the options available to you and explain more about Whole Life Cost, which weighs up the cost of your lease against other vans but takes into account far more than just your monthly lease fee.
There is a tax saving! On and after 6 April 2021 the Government will reduce the van benefit charge (VBC) for zero emissions vans to £nil. (BIK on a normal van is £3490/year).

So now onto our specific van offer – the Vauxhall e-Vivaro
We have a great offer on the Vauxhall e-Vivaro; from just £394.99 a month you could be behind the wheel of this electric van. You can find out specifics of the deal on our website following the link below, but we wanted to share some more detail about the van itself.
The Vauxhall e-Vivaro is winner of the International Van of the Year 2021 award and has been applauded for many of its attributes. The 50 kW battery option has a range up to 143 miles and the 75 kW battery option up to 206 miles.
Payload is 1,226 kg for the 50 kW and 1,002 kg for the 75 kW, both can tow up 1000kg and of course both emit zero emissions. They can be ‘rapid charged’ up to 80% capacity in as little as 30 minutes.
Described as a “versatile performer” the electric power means low maintenance costs (if leasing you can take out a maintenance package to ensure no worries here.) There is zero road tax and zero congestion charge and we can help you to arrange a home charging solution via our partnership with Rolec, and with a grant available to help with the cost. You can read more here.
Vauxhall share information on its website about the positive environmental impact of driving an electric van – you could save 9.5 kg of CO2 daily (based on daily mileage of 40 miles) which they say is the equivalent of filling 347 children’s party balloons !
The e-Vivaro has a load length of 2862 mm and width 1258mm …. an 8 x 4 sheet will lie flat. The payload is 1002kg and the driving range of 206 miles is very impressive.
