Vauxhall continues to win deals with its all-electric Vivaro-e.
Facilities management company Mitie has ordered 655 of the vans, while organic fruit and vegetable supplier Riverford has taken 10 of the battery-electric models. Mitie has ordered the Luton-built vans in a mix of L1 and L2 models, all powered by the larger 75kWh battery, delivering a range of up to 205 miles. The vans will be used by the company’s frontline engineers and they have been specially kitted out with all of the necessary equipment, while keeping weight low to boost driving range.
Riverford’s ambitions may be on a slightly smaller scale, but they are no less ambitious. The Devon-based company aims to turn its entire fleet to EVs by 2025. The firm will base the 10 Vivaro-e vans at its first all-electric hub in Bristol.
