Vauxhall is to supply Mitie, one of the UK’s leading facilities management and professional services companies, with 655 New all-electric Vivaro-e vans. The first Vivaro-e has already been delivered and takes Mitie to the landmark of 1,000 electric vehicles on its fleet. The van will be used by a Mitie frontline engineer and has been specially fitted-out to ensure it can carry all the equipment needed while minimising weight, to help maximise the battery’s range.
Mitie ordered the 75kWh battery vans with a split of standard L1 and long L2 wheelbase versions. Capable of up to 205 miles from a single charge, these Vivaro-e vans support up to 100kW rapid charging with an 80 per cent charge taking just 45 minutes.
Payload is best-in-class, up to 1226kg, and, uniquely in the market for all-electric LCVs, Vivaro-e is capable of towing up to one tonne. The vans are also exempt from current congestion and ultra-low emissions charges, and also benefit-in-kind taxation at 60 per cent of the standard van rate.
