London-based G.Network has acquired 100 Maxus eLCVs to be used by its field engineers as they travel around the capital connecting homes and businesses to its 100% fibre broadband network.
The 80 eDeliver 3 and 20 eDeliver 9 vehicles were supplied through Harris Maxus, which distributes them across right-hand drive Europe, and the deal was struck through Maxus dealership HTC Van Centre.
Maxus’s eDeliver 3 has a maximum range of up to 151 miles and can charge to 80% in 45 minutes with DC charging.
Meanwhile, the eDeliver 9 has a range of up to 219 miles and the ability to also charge 80% in 45 minutes with DC fast charging,
Aaron Cartey, Fleet Manager at G.Network, said, “It is our priority that we work safely and sustainably, so we are delighted to partner with Maxus to bolster our fleet of electric vans.
“Our fleet is a key part of our carbon reduction plan, which not only improves our business productivity, but the customer experience of the Londoners we serve.”
Mark Barrett, Managing Director of Harris Maxus, said: “We’re proud to be supporting businesses such as G.Network electrify and future-proof their fleet.
“Now is the time for companies to make the switch to electric, particularly businesses such as G.Network that are working in the London zone and have to contend with the recently extended ULEZ.
“We currently have a number of supports in place for businesses eligible for the ULEZ scrappage scheme, offering businesses even bigger savings on new ULEZ compliant vehicles.”
