Glasgow firm launches new electric vans


Glasgow-based Allied Vehicles has launched two new electric vans based on two of manufacturer Peugeot’s most popular light commercial vehicles (LCVs).

The firm has introduced the eBipper and ePartner, vehicles which offer the same payload and practicality benefits of the conventional Bipper and Partner vans while reducing carbon emissions to zero.

Both vehicles can be charged using a conventional power socket and are designed to offer a range of 65 miles.

The launch follows Allied’s previous launch of the eExpert and eBoxer in conjunction with Peugeot, with the range having been met with success thus far.

Allied Vehicles managing director Paul Nelson said: “More companies have to reduce their carbon footprint on urban deliveries and our electric product range meets all these demands.”

Peugeot has seen the popularity of its standard LCV range increase in the last month according to March 2010 sales figures, with the Bipper proving to be its bestselling van so far this year.
