Your electric van range can be altered by number of factors, including external temperature, operating the heating or cooling systems and the speed at which you are driving.
For long-lasting hot and cold temperatures, your electric range is affected because more energy is required to keep the battery at an optimum running temperature.
The manufacturer usually has a schedule for servicing that you need to make sure you keep to. This is the same for petrol and diesel vans as well.
The difference between an electric van or a combustion engine car is that an electric van service tends to be cheaper. This is because electric vans have fewer parts and so there are less things to go wrong.
Kilowatt-hours (kWh) measure how much energy can be stored in a battery. So an electric van with more kWh will have a greater range and/or performance because it's battery has a greater capacity.
Yes, the electric van grant will have been deducted from the total price of the van. This means that your monthly payment will have a discount already put on it - making sure you are getting the best price for your electric van lease.
There are two types of electric chargers; a three-pin plug or Type 2 charging plug. A 3-pin plug plugs directly into your plug sockets at home or work so you can charge without needing to install a charge point. However, a Type 2 charging point is considered a faster and safer way of charging your vehicle.
If you are worried about the cost of installing a charging point to your workplace, the government offer a Workplace Charging Scheme which is a voucher-based scheme that provides support towards the up-front costs of the purchase and installation of electric vehicle charge-points, for eligible businesses, charities and public sector organisations. You can check out this government grant scheme on their website.
