There are significant savings to be made in the cost of charging an electric van versus refuelling a petrol or diesel van. Charging your vehicle is considerably cheaper than refuelling, and as there are fewer moving parts in an EV than a standard internal combustion engine, servicing costs less.
Electric vehicles are quieter and smoother to drive compared to traditional petrol or diesel vehicles. They also offer instant torque, which means that they are more responsive and accelerate faster.
Several schemes are available to make the switch to electric more viable for businesses. The Government’s Plug-In Van Grant, applicable our electric vans, contributes 35% of the purchase price up to £5,000.
IA vehicles also help you save if you’re regularly driving in Ultra Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) or any of the new Clean Air and Low Emission Zones now live and being proposed across the UK. With the London Ultra Low Emission Zone due to expand significantly from Central London in October 2021, IA vehicles can access the ULEZ without paying the noncompliance. If you drive a daily commute in London's ULEZ zone, it could cost you up to £375 a month.
