PEUGEOT will supply 250 full electric e-Expert vans to leading rental service provider, Northgate Vehicle Hire, as the rental company moves to expand the option of zero-emission vehicles available to customers. All 250 e-Expert vans will be available to rent next year, making them an ideal choice for business users looking for a 100% electric van.
The 250 PEUGEOT e-Experts will join Northgate’s fleet of over 110,000 vehicles, available to customers across the UK, Spain and Ireland. Northgate’s award-winning rental service provides flexible hire and maintenance of light commercial vehicles, as well as fleet management support to help customers operate their business more effectively.
The PEUGEOT e-Expert was a natural choice for Northgate, with the company looking to offer more electric vehicles to its customers. With a range of up to 211 miles from a single charge, maximum payload of 1,226kg (model dependent) and load volume of up to 6.1m3, the PEUGEOT e-Expert is a practical vehicle for businesses looking for a zero-emission solution to their needs.
The new PEUGEOT e-Expert is capable of receiving 80% charge in just 30 minutes through 100kW rapid charging, making it viable for extended use. The PEUGEOT e-Expert is available with either a 50kWh or a 75kWh battery and features a 100kW (136hp) electric motor.
Tim Bailey, Fleet Director at Northgate Vehicle Hire, said: “We’re working to provide the latest electric vehicle options to help support carbon reduction. By agreeing this initial deal with PEUGEOT for 250 new e-Experts, we can ensure that customers who want to use fit-for-purpose EVs in their fleets can do so quickly and with minimal impact on cashflow.”
