A Guide to Choosing a Commercial Electric Van in Ireland

Do you want to purchase a commercial electric van? You are not alone. More and more business owners are looking into electric vehicles (EVs) due to the Irish Government’s commitment to promoting the switch to zero-emission vehicles. Agencies such as the Sustainable Energy Authority in Ireland and Transport Infrastructure Ireland are working tirelessly to make this commitment and the necessary infrastructure a reality. A Maxus electric van is the ultimate zero-emissions alternative to your petrol or diesel van, and we share our ultimate guide to choosing a commercial electric van in Ireland.

An Overview of Commercial Electric Vans

A commercial electric van operates under the same principles as a personal battery electric vehicle (BEV). It boasts fewer moving components than a conventional internal combustion engine (ICE), leading to reduced maintenance and repair needs. Additionally, you can lower operating costs, like electricity, by installing solar panels at your charging stations.

Commercial electric vans boast zero tailpipe emissions, exempting you from road user charges in Ireland’s low-emission zones (LEZ), ultra-low-emission zones (ULEZ), or clean air zones (CAZ). They also present an effective solution to noise pollution. These vans are so quiet that fitting an acoustic vehicle alerting system (AVAS) is mandatory in many countries.

The Different Types of Commercial Electric Vans in Ireland

Though the availability of light electric commercial vans surpasses that of heavy goods vehicles (HGVs), the market for electric HGVs is steadily expanding. Specialising in electric vans, Maxus offers a commercial range tailored to every requirement, whether it’s payload, loadspace, passenger capacity, or driving range. We are also experts at commercial van conversions. Let’s look at our commercial range in more detail:

Key Considerations for Choosing a Commercial Electric Van

The key factor in choosing commercial electric vans for your business is ensuring they are fit for purpose. Consider the range to determine the driving distance on a charge, whether for long distances or city driving. Also, consider the battery’s recharge time. As the commercial electric van market is still developing, it’s also wise to consider the potential resale value and insurance costs.
