Hot on the heels of yesterday’s news thatsmith Electric Vehicles has appointed a distributor for Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands (See: Electric Vehicles In Iceland, Greenland And The Faroe Islands From Smith Electric Vehicles – And Tachoblog! if you don’t know what we’re on about), Tachoblog can bring you the news that an electric delivery vehicle that has a range of up to 300 miles but costs less than £10,000 is now available to UK fleets.  And here it is…

E Truck with tipper body1 427x320

The 1,100kg E-Truck is an all-electric, compact light cargo vehicle, built for urban and suburban operations. The 3-wheel vehicle has a tight turning radius of 4.5m. With a payload of up to 400kg, it is designed for light duty applications such as city goods delivery and is ideal for contractors or tradesmen.

The E-Truck is produced by Elecscoot (who are apparently the UK’s leading supplier of all-electric scooters) and features the company’s proprietary drive line and battery management system (BMS).

Ian Allison, Managing Director of Elecscoot,told Tachoblog,  “I wanted to provide an affordable electric delivery vehicle that I would be happy to drive. The E-Truck is easy to use, easy to maintain and very easy on the wallet.

“Our electric scooter business has taught us that the best way to provide a fleet-ready vehicle is to have complete control over the drive line and battery management system. We built it, so we know how to provide the best technical support and after-sales service for it.”

E-Truck is available in three configurations with ranges of 112, 180 and 300 miles. The 112 mile version uses lead gel batteries and is priced from just £7,995. With ‘fuel’ from as little as 2p per mile, the E-Truck series delivers excellent whole life cost savings for fleet managers. The vehicle comes in RHD as standard and LHD is available, for safe kerbside deliveries.

Elecscoot is opening a new 21,000sq ft assembly facility in Consett, County Durham, to produce the E-Truck range. It aims to conduct direct sales to fleets and is looking for dealers to target the end-user market.
