Northgate is to add 250 Peugeot e-Expert vans to its rental fleet, helping businesses looking to go electric.
Launched earlier this year, the e-Expert provides a range of up to 211 miles on the 75kWh battery and a maximum payload of up to 1,226kg on the 50kWh battery. Charging takes from 45 minutes (up to 80%) on 100kW fast charging.
Northgate said the vehicle would be a major addition to its EV fleet, helping to support customers’ transition to EVs and benefiting them through reduced running costs without requiring fleets themselves to make the initial capital outlay.
The vehicle will be backed by Northgate’s rental packages, which include servicing, maintenance and tyres – along with the option of a range of fleet management and accident management services.
Tim Bailey, fleet director at Northgate Vehicle Hire, said: “We’re working to provide the latest electric vehicle options to help support carbon reduction. By agreeing this initial deal with Peugeot for 250 e-Experts, we can ensure that customers who want to use fit-for-purpose EVs in their fleets can do so quickly and with minimal impact on cashflow.”
