CitySprint acquires 30 electric vans

LinkedIn +

As part of the company’s ongoing strategy to increase its electric fleet, CitySprint has acquired 30 electric vans from vehicle manufacturer Maxus.

The Maxus e-vans require 45 minutes of charging to reach 80% battery and have a range of up to 213 miles/344km on a full battery. The electric vans will be deployed in the UK’s ultra-low emission zones (ULEZ). CitySprint states e-vans are effective for courier work due to the high number of stops involved on short urban routes, and possess the required space to carry multiple items on board.

Wrapped in the company’s blue branding, the vans are fully operational in a number of CitySprint’s sites in London, Leeds and Manchester, where they carry out local pickups and collections for regular customers as well as ad hoc bookings. They also support the management of medical deliveries for the NHS, as well as a number of other services including medical courier, same-day, next-day and international deliveries.
