London Electric Vehicle Company (LEVC) is supplying 100 new electrified vans to vehicle rental provider, Europcar.

The new fleet of VN5 vans, featuring eCity range extender technology, will be available at Europcar Vans & Trucks locations across the UK, including Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, Heathrow, Leeds, Manchester Trafford Park and Sheffield.

The VN5 is built by LEVC in Coventry and has a pure EV range of more than 96km (60 miles) and a total flexible range of 489km (304 miles), according to the manufacturer.

With up to 5.5m3 capacity, the VN5’s cargo capacity can accommodate two Euro sized pallets and offers a gross payload of up to 830kg.

It has also been built with a large side-loading door – enabling a pallet to be side-loaded – and a 60/40 split door at the rear to make loading and unloading easy for the driver.
