UK-based compliance and energy services provider Sureserve Group has added 30, 100% electric Citroën ë-Dispatch vans to its LCV fleet.
Sureserve Group placed orders for ë-Dispatch Enterprise vans with Medium ‘M’ body length and the larger 75kWh battery, to meet its varied requirements.
The vans took to the road in late June, serving customers in the social housing, public buildings and education markets across the UK.
Available with a choice of two battery sizes, the ë-Dispatch is capable of up to 143 miles with the 50kWh battery option, or up to 205 miles with the larger 75kWh battery pack.
It can be charged at home or on site through a 7kW wallbox, or via a super-fast public charging station at speeds of up to 100kW that can re-charge the battery to 80% of capacity in just 30 or 45 minutes, for 50kWh and 75kWh versions respectively.
The battery has been positioned under the floor of the vehicle to maintain maximum load space, providing up to 6.6m3 of load volume and a payload of up to 1,002kg.
Dean Williams, group fleet manager at Sureserve Group, said, “We have always sought to manage our fleet of commercial and company vehicles to the most efficient standards available, and the addition of 30 new Citroën ë-Dispatch vans will start the next stage in our journey towards a greener and more economical fleet, with further additions planned in the future.
“As well as the environmental value in using zero emissions vehicles, we are encouraged by the potential cost savings, and with fewer moving parts, less requirements for servicing, maintenance and repairs.”
