Electric Van update

Just a quick update on the Electric Van front… Its not arrived yet but is still scheduled for June.

We have had the quotes for the charging infrastructure at home. It was the expected £900 and goes in on the 25th of May so the outward indication of EV ownership will get stuck to the wall. This will be a standard charge socket. There are 3 charge socket types, Standard, Fast and Rapid. Rapid is the much heralded 30min charge time, which was part of the decision to go for EV at this time.., however we now find it is not available yet and not for our Van….! Despite it being in the brochure! Only the Fast charger is available which is 4 hours… hmmm not really a fast turn around for a commercial vehicle but not impossible it just needs to be managed… Still looking forward to getting it.

I wold like to comment on the overwhelming support this move has had from clients and venues alike. Everyone is interested and is keen to find out how we get on. ‘Brave move’ is the comment often made, but we don’t think its brave as for us its a love of the technology and it just seemed the right thing to do.  With out early adopters the technology will not develop to a more widely usable method of transport. I remember badgering my local video shop when they where going to stock DVD’s and they hadn’t even heard of DVD’s at the time!!! Block Buster where are they now… to stay ahead you need to adopt the new tech and early…
