Is it worth buying an electric van?

tldr

With the recent fuel shortages across the UK, it may be the right time to consider whether it is worth buying an all-electric van for your business. Today, we focus on the all-electric commercial range from Peugeot and how they could benefit your business and keep you on the roads whilst the rest of us queue at the petrol station.

Charters Peugeot Aldershot sell three main all-electric vans (with many variants and sizes): Peugeot e-Partner, e-Expert and e-Boxer. Each of these models represent the best commercials on the roads today (winning many international awards). No compromises are made on space, comfort and payload. Towing abilities are exceptional whether you choose a combustion or all-electric van.

ARE THERE ANY GOVERNMENT GRANTS?

At the time that this article is written, the UK government offers financial incentives to change your fleet to all-electric. e-Partner is offered with a grant up to £2500 of the purchase price. E-Expert and E-Boxer are offered with a grant up to £5,000. These will help bring the initial cost of your all-electric commercial down. Prices are generally quoted with these plug-in grants applied.

WHAT ABOUT RUNNING COSTS?

Running costs are where the all-electric Peugeot van range come into their own. Your electric vehicle can manage up to: 139,171 or 205 miles of range (dependant on model and variant).

With each all-electric vehicle, we offer a 6-month BP Pulse subscription. This enables you to benefit from the best prices for on-the-road charging stations. You’ll replenish your charge quicker (with fast chargers) and they’ll be more affordable than you’re used to. Using a fast charger, you can be on the road again with a full charge for less than a cup of coffee (charged at 27p per KWh). Compare that to your current van (with a fill-up being between £60-£150) and you’ll understand how affordable these vehicles can be.

Using the extremely helpful Home Charge comparison tool, we can determine that if you were to only charge your vehicle at your business base and used your van 1000 miles every week (52,000 miles a year), it would cost you:

ALL-ELECTRIC COSTS

  • from £636 a year for e-Partner*
  • from £816 a year for e-Expert*
  • from £1186 a year for e-Boxer*

*These prices have been compared directly on the EDF GoElectric 35 tariff. More details can be found here.

DIESEL COSTS

  • from £5,026 a year for Peugeot Partner**
  • from £6,287 a year for Peugeot Expert**
  • from £8,086 a year for Peugeot Boxer**

**These prices have been based upon the highest WLTP economy figures available for all models. Based on £1.40 per litre diesel price (approximately £6.36 per imperial gallon).

That’s a massive saving on each Peugeot all-electric van over their combustion equivalents.

WHAT ABOUT THE LIMITED RANGE?

This is where many people show concern and whilst WLTP statistics are helpful in comparing vehicles, it is not always completely accurate in your daily use. Below you’ll find the WLTP results for each of our commercial vehicles. Your range will vary on a variety of factors but you will easily get over 100 miles with most models you choose. Our team can advise you on real-world economy.

This makes the current generation of all-electric vans more useful to local businesses than national ones. A realistic measure of whether an all-electric Peugeot van can manage your business needs is to realistically establish how many miles your current vehicle has travelled over the past year. For most of us, a 100-200 mile range per day is plenty to achieve your deliveries and this is where all-electric savings can really add up. For those wishing to travel further, many of our vehicles can be charged to 80% in just 30 minutes, so you can grab a coffee or lunch and be ready for the road before you know it.

Going greener can save small businesses big in the long run and with the tax incentives of including all-electric vehicles in your fleet, it’s about time you discovered our multi award-winning electric range of vans at Charters of Aldershot.
