London Electric Vehicle Company (LEVC) is supplying 60 VN5 electric vans to EV charging infrastructure provider Pod Point.
The VN5s will be used by Pod Point engineers to install EV charging points all over the UK, as well as helping the business to maintain its network of more than 6,200 public charging bays.
Pod Point’s expert installers will be able to easily access installation equipment via the VN5’s large side-loading door.
LEVC’s VN5 electric van, which is based on the same architecture and eCity powertrain technology as its TX electric taxi, has a pure EV range of 64 miles and a total flexible range of 319 miles.
The introduction of the VN5 to the Pod Point vehicle fleet follows a significant year of growth for the EV charging provider across both its home and commercial customer segments.
As a result, the business has increased its headcount by 66 per cent, to 409 employees including 60 dedicated in-house installers.
Joerg Hofmann CEO of LEVC said, “I am pleased to announce Pod Point as one of our latest major UK fleet customers.
“Pod Point is a major operator in supporting the move towards electrification and LEVC is pleased to be working with such a recognised brand, with our VN5 assisting technicians as they continue to build the UK’s charging infrastructure.”
Graham Evans, Chief of Operations at Pod Point said, “Vehicle electrification is one of the most powerful ways to stop travel damaging the earth and our mission is to put an EV chargepoint everywhere you park.
“We are delighted to be working with LEVC and the VN5 is a natural fit for our business and our growing team of expert installers.”
