LEVC’s range-extended electric VN5 van has been converted for use in temperature-controlled food delivery, for London artisan butcher Turner & George. The butcher recently launched a click and collect service for London-based clients and required a zero-emission refrigerated delivery solution. The battery within the VN5 can offer up to 60 miles of EV travel and is big enough to power the fridge unit, with the petrol engine range-extender coming into play once the van is outside the ULEZ low-emission zone.

“VN5 has the ability to keep goods cool, operate with zero emissions and eliminate any range or charging anxiety,” said LEVC CEO Joerg Hofmann. “It is the perfect solution for companies in the food and medical specialist sectors looking to witch to an electric van, while also needing the reliability of a consistent temperature-controlled environment.”
