Electric vans on the roads today

Data by Nextgreencar.com suggest that electric vehicles have grown in popularity over the past few years, leading to more and more electric vehicles present on UK roads today. As well as this, their data revealed that the number of new registrations of electric vehicles has risen from 3,500 in 2013 to 85,000 by the end of 2016.

With that in mind, there are now 5,000 plug-in vans registered on the roads across the UK – proving that the electric vehicle market is a strong progressive retail.

As popularity of plug-in vehicles grow, there seems to be more choice available to those interested in an electric van. When choosing which van is best suited to the rest of your fleet, used commercial van specialist Van Monster has ranked some of the most popular plug-in vans according to their battery range. Not only that, but you will find some other characteristics in the tables which are wise to consider when adding a new vehicle to your fleet. Some characteristics might sway your decision:
