Converter unveils electric box van

North east-based Vic Young Conversions has adapted a Nissan e-NV200 to create a fully electric box van. The company says the vehicle is the first of its kind in the UK. Payload is 575kg and load volume is 8.55m3.

The vehicle is available with a number of options, such as a choice of rear closures, twin sided roller shutter suggestions and internal racking applications.

Vic Young, managing director, said: “This is an incredible achievement for us and I could not be more pleased with the team who brought this to fruition. We always look ahead with our conversion projects so that we can transform the market in new, exciting ways and I think the all-electric NV200 box van is evidence of this. I firmly believe that the market is ready to go all-electric with vehicles for trade and industry.”

The van is claimed to have a 130-mile ‘real world range’ with a rapid charge time of 40-60 minutes or 7.5 hours on standard charge. All box vans come with a 5 year/100,000 mile warranty against design and manufacturer defect.

Vic Young Conversions is planning to produce an electric drop-side and waste bin collection van later this year.
