Feedback & FAQ’s
Great service start to delivery
I’ve had 3 vans off of Vanzone now since 2020, they are extremely well priced and really try to get you the best deal they can. I’ve seen other reviews complaining about lead times, I have to say that some times this is inevitable and entirely out of their control….
Very professional to deal with. Easy delivery process & staff always seem very helpful.
Very straight forward company to purchase a new van from . Good price, very helpful employees from start to finish. Van was delivered by a employee who could only be described as a true gentleman. When arrived the van only had 69 miles on the clock and was as described…
Not pushy, very prompt in responding, matched my requirements, no hassle. Good customer service, checked everything was going smoothly at all stages
THE COMPLETE PROCESS WAS SO EASY HIGH RECOMMENDED 🙌
Would highly recommend Vanzone such a great company to deal with from buying my new van to receiving my van great with updates all the way through and delivering to my home address would definitely buy from again thanks paul
I’m very satisfied with Vanzone. I dealt with Chris and Emily, they were very professional and I felt heard. The van was delivered exactly when they said. The drive who delivered my van was Rhys, he was such a gentlemen. Thank very much. Ilir/Leo
What Is An Electric Van?
On the outside, an electric van looks like any other van on the road. They come in various configurations from crew vans to pickup trucks, with one key difference: how they’re powered.
Electric vans are run by electricity that can be supplied from your home or at a dedicated charging point. Because they’re so modern, electric vans are also some of the most technologically advanced , with smart energy saving measures allowing you to squeeze every last ounce of power from it.
A great choice for businesses looking to cut back on their fuel costs, electric vans serve a lot of purposes. Discover the next generation of vans, here.
Why Choose an Electric Van?
In previous years, electric vans were reserved for only the most economically-minded of businesses. However, as time has passed, every single van manufacturer has dipped their toes in to the market. This means that you can find an electric van from pretty much every manufacturer, so you won’t have to part ways with the brands you love.
Electric vans are incredibly cheap to run. On average, a full charge on a medium sized van takes 2-4 hours, costing around £7. Comparing this to a diesel van, electric vans work out to cost as much as 80% less on running costs. Electric vans are also much easier to service due to there being less moving parts, and fewer points of failure. This brings the costs down even further, all of which gives electric vans some great value for money.
What’s even more is that electric vans are totally exempt from tax requirements, granting your business a small pot of cash to do whatever you like. Plus, certain models come with an added benefit of the Plug-In Grant. Here, the UK government will pay 20% of the purchase price of your van up to a maximum of £8,000.
Which Models Make For the Best Electric Vans?
Nowadays, electric vans are almost as common as their petrol and diesel counterparts. So much so that buyers can have a hard time deciding between the two. Here are a couple models that have caught our eye:
One electric van that is a common sight on UK roads is the Nissan E-NV200. It covers up to 187 miles on a full charge; can be rapidly charged in around 40 minutes; has up to 2.8m of load length; and can carry up to 705kg of payload.
Another great option is the Renault Kangoo ZE. The French brand has wisely used its experience with electric cars to develop an electric van that is practical, and a pleasure to drive. Built on the same wheelbase as the traditional Kangoo, the Kangoo ZE covers up to 190 miles, taking around 6 hours to fully charge. By far the greatest benefit of the Kangoo however is its connected services. From the tap of a button on your smartphone, you’ll be able to see just how many miles your van has left in it, where the nearest charging point is, and when you should charge to get the best price. On top of this, the van is incredibly comfortable, with an interior focused on ergonomics and space. The load length measures 2.88m, and payload measurements come in at 650kg.
