London Electric Vehicle Company is supplying Pod Point with 60 VN5 electric vans for its engineers to use when installing chargepoints across the UK.
As well as being used for the installation of electric vehicle charging points, the VN5 electric vans are also being used to help the business to maintain its network of more than 6,200 public charging bays.
Graham Evans, Chief of Operations at Pod Point, said: “Vehicle electrification is one of the most powerful ways to stop travel damaging the earth and our mission is to put an EV chargepoint everywhere you park. We are delighted to be working with LEVC and the VN5 is a natural fit for our business and our growing team of expert installers.”
The VN5 electric van is based on the same architecture and eCity technology as LEVC’s TX electric taxi and offers a pure EV range of 64 miles and a total flexible range of 319 miles.
The introduction of the LEVC VN5 to the Pod Point vehicle fleet follows a significant year of growth for the EV charging provider across both its home and commercial customer segments. As a result, the business has increased its headcount by 66 per cent, to 409 employees including 60 dedicated in-house installers.
The vans feature bespoke racking and storage solutions installed by Sortimo, an authorised conversion partner of LEVC.
Joerg Hofmann, CEO of LEVC, said: “I am pleased to announce Pod Point as one of our latest major UK fleet customers. Pod Point is a major operator in supporting the move towards electrification and LEVC is pleased to be working with such a recognised brand, with our VN5 assisting technicians as they continue to build the UK’s charging infrastructure.”
