Electric Commercial Van Utility (EV-UT)

Introduction

NRCS approved Commercial Van Body 2 Seat vehicle featuring a 5kW AC drive and all additional safety features allowing road legal use, ideally suited to campuses, small towns, and inner city areas for shorter range deliveries, maintenance, or utility operation.

Comparing operating costs over a 50km daily range to a conventional Petrol 1.4L bakkie our EV-UT fuel cost is R0.22/km compared to the 1.4L petrol bakkie at R1.15/km, with an all up monthly operating cost comparison for our EV-UT of R1.31/km versus R2.34/km for the 1.4L petrol bakkie, providing significant operating cost savings of more than 44%. (based on published AA rates including licensing, maintenance, tyres, insurance and battery pack consumption). See our Commercial utility operating cost comparison study.

This simple to run and maintain commercial utility with its small footprint allows use in narrow and confined areas where standard petrol/diesel vehicles are unable to go, as well as catering for indoor or enclosed areas with zero exhaust emissions and near silent operation. The EV-UT is fully customisable with solar panels, all weather covers, carry tubes, roof and ladder racks, battery watering systems and more.

Our Electric Commercial Van Utility is the only Road Legal Van Body (L7) Electric vehicle built in South Africa.
