Volkswagen first started their electric movement over 50 years ago, with years of pioneering research it has helped the brand launch their electric range.
Making the switch to electric can benefit your business and the environment. Grants, lower running and servicing costs and access to ultra-low emissions zones can make buying a Volkswagen Electric Commercial Van beneficial for your business.
In an electric car you can travel around 30 miles a day, you will only need to charge it around once or twice a week. The Volkswagen Electric Vans have been designed to offer a bigger range; the e-Crafter is designed to travel up to 107 mile range. The compact batteries can recharge overnight or from 0-80% in 45 minutes using a fast charger. All Volkswagen electric vans will have a range tailored for urban multi-drops.
We’ve made charging your electric vehicle simple and accessible, allowing you to charge at home, on the go and even in a rush. To charge at home, all you need is a household socket or wall box that’s been professionally installed. There is a choice of three different power outlets and charging speeds available. All charging equipment is completely weather proof. When out and about you can simply charge it up during a short break at a charging station, in as little as 20 minutes.
Charging times at home depend on what kind of power supply you have installed. A 3-pin plug will take 17 hours, whilst a wall box takes between 5 and 10 hours. Rapid chargers take just 45 minutes to charge the vehicle.
The Workplace Charging Scheme is a voucher-based scheme that provides support towards the up-front costs of the purchase and installation of electric vehicle charge points. The voucher will offer the businesses up to £350 towards the cost of installation and purchasing per charge point socket up to 20 sockets per applicant business.
The WCS (Workplace Charging Scheme) is available to many businesses, charities or public authorities, with some conditions. The grant is provided by the Government Office for Low Emissions Vehicles.
An electric vehicle should be serviced regularly just like a petrol or diesel car. We recommend after 18k miles / 24 months, then every 18k miles or 12 months.
