9 Seat Fully Accessible Electric Minibus

9 Seat Fully Accessible Electric Minibus

The ultra light electric minibus with a 100 mile urban range

Jointly developed with industry leading suppliers the ULEM (Ultra-Light Electric Minibus) based on the LDV EV80 is the first Fully Electric Minibus available for contract hire or outright purchase.

The EV80 features 8 seats plus the driver with the option to remove 8 seats to create space for 3 wheelchair passengers. Boasting a zero emissions output from its 100 kW electric motor the EV80 can be operated in LEZ and ULEZ zones without charge.

A range of 100 urban miles means it’s an ideal inner-city transport solution that you can operate all day.

Transport for London Scrappage Scheme

To help improve London's toxic air the Mayor of London has launched a scrappage scheme to replace vehicles that don't meet the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) standards. Companies with up to 50 employees are eligible.

Under the scrappage scheme, eligible businesses with up to 50 employees and charities can apply for funds to scrap up to three older, more polluting vans and charity minibuses and switch to cleaner vehicles.

We are offering a £500.00 additional cashback reward on any 5 year + contract hire or outright purchase

You can recycle your van with us at one of five Authorised Treatment Facilities located across London. Find out more about our fully licensed Authorised Treatment Facilities here:
