Customer Stories: The Impact of Switching to Electric Vans 

Drivers immediately feel the impact of switching to electric vans. Electric vehicles (EVs) are quiet compared to internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, and you don’t pay daily charges when your van route crosses clean air zones. Suddenly, you don’t need to budget for diesel, petrol, and engine oil – only an increase in your energy bill. When you choose to switch to an electric vehicle, your business and the community will experience its environmental impact in the long term.  

The Committee on Climate Change (CCC), in a June 2023 report to parliament, stated that 2022 was the warmest year on record in the UK across all four seasons. Most will have heard of someone who had to move business premises in 2023 due to flooding or experienced supply chain issues that impacted their operating costs.

Customer Testimonials: Real-Life Experiences With Electric Vans  

G.Network is a full-fibre broadband provider serving residents and businesses across London, and their fleet often travels through or within the city’s ultra-low emission zone (ULEZ), one of the largest in the world. Last year, they purchased one hundred Maxus eDeliver 3 and eDeliver 9 vans.

Aaron Cartey, Fleet Manager at G. Network, said: “Every day, G.Network Field Engineers travel around the heart of London connecting homes and businesses to our 100% fibre network. It is our priority that we work safely and sustainably, so we are delighted to partner with Maxus to bolster our fleet of electric vans.”

“Our fleet is a key part of our carbon reduction plan, which not only improves our business productivity, but the customer experience of the Londoners we serve.”

DPD UK, a parcel delivery company, has more than 10,000 vehicles operating in the region, and Maxus supplied 750 eDeliver vans to DPD in 2021.  

The Benefits of Switching to an Electric Vehicle   

The benefits of switching to electric vans in the UK far outweigh any short-term challenges you might experience learning to drive an electric vehicle or understanding the van’s battery range. Here are just some of the benefits your business receives from choosing EVs:

Eco-friendly. Electric vans have zero emissions at the tailpipe as they have no exhaust, which reduces air pollution considerably. 

Low-cost maintenance. EVs have far fewer parts than an internal combustion engine, cutting maintenance costs. 

Brand Perception. Using electric vans in your fleet shows your company cares about the environment and your customer’s health. It increases goodwill. 

Cost-savings. What cost savings are there when you choose EVs? You save on charges in clean air zones and have access to several government incentives.
