Innovation Automotive launches DFSK EC35 all-electric van

Electric vehicle firm Innovation Automotive has launched its debut vehicle, the DFSK EC35 all-electric van.

Powered by a 39kWh lithium-ion battery, Innovation Automotive offers the EC35 with a choice of WLTP-approved range options from 101 miles and a limited top speed of 62mph, to an increased WLTP-approved range option which delivers up to 166 miles, with a limited top speed of 50mph.

The EC35 comes with charging capabilities via a CCS charging connector as standard and can be charged to 80% in just 60 minutes using a DC rapid charger, reducing downtime and keeping drivers on the road for longer.

EC35 is on sale for £20,999 + VAT OTR and is backed by a five-year/75,000-mile warranty.

Paul Brigden, Innovation Automotive’s CEO, said: “We are delighted to launch our debut vehicle into the UK market. The DFSK EC35 represents the ideal balance between zero tailpipe emissions, load carrying capability and compact dimensions. We believe it’s just what the market needs.

“True to the company’s mission of making the transition to electrification accessible and affordable for all, we have priced the EC35 extremely competitively, and will back it up with an aftersales proposition that is unique to the sector. We look forward to engaging with our first customers over the coming weeks and introducing them to the Innovation Automotive experience.”

The launch of the DFSK EC35 follows a series of strategic partnership announcements by Innovation Automotive. Already this year, the electric vehicle specialist has revealed that it will be working in close collaboration with the AA, BCA and Halfords, as part of its customer support package.
