ETRUX, the Ulster based company that specialises in the design and conversion of lightweight commercial vehicles, has launched its new fully electric Ford E-Transit Trizone van, which is ideal for supermarkets and other perishable goods delivery services.

Operating under the JANS Group, with a manufacturing facility in Antrim and a base in Birmingham, ETRUX also assists fleet managers in the journey from diesel to electric vehicles via its EVolve programme and the Ford E-Transit Trizone van is the latest addition to the company’s converted electric van range.

Officially launched during the Commercial Vehicle (CV) Show, at the NEC, Birmingham, the Ford E-Transit Trizone combines durability, strength and lightweight panels with high insulating qualities.

Built and designed by the ETRUX team, the vehicle is fully tested and comes fitted with a GAH refrigeration system, temperature controls, chilling capabilities down to zero degrees, efficient defrost and internal drainage to accommodate water runoff and spillages.

Speaking about the vehicle, Gerard Galvin, ETRUX Managing Director said: “We are delighted to announce the launch of our new Ford E-Transit Trizone van. We are confident that this new vehicle will offer companies a reliable solution to meet their needs and requirements as well as presenting them with practical ways to reduce their carbon footprint.”

ETRUX was recently awarded the prestigious Ford Pro Convertor Status and is one of only two companies on the island of Ireland to boast the accolade. The company currently offers a range of electric vehicles including the Ford E-Transit Welfare van, which comes equipped with an updated interior, alongside the Isuzu 7.5t Magtec Luton van and Gerard claims that the addition of the Trizone will enable the company to continue providing solutions for a huge range of sectors.

“At ETRUX, we pride ourselves on providing high quality vehicle solutions for a huge range of sectors including construction, utility, film and television, haulage and medical and with the addition of the Trizone, we can now cater to the supermarket and perishable goods delivery industries,” he added.

“Having a number of fully electric vehicles available also means that we can assist fleet and transport managers with achieving the Net Zero target and will play a key role in the UK government’s Zero Emissions Vehicle (ZEV) Mandate. Through our EVolve consultancy, we work closely with our customers to guide them through the entire process of switching from diesel to electric vehicles, from conducting the initial feasibility study right through to managing vehicle disposal at the end-of-life stage. We are all acutely aware of the lower running costs, reduced noise pollution, enhanced driving experience and the positive impact on the environment that moving to electric vehicles will offer and we’re providing the very best quality vehicles to help companies achieve this.”
