Electric Van Info
Electric Van Information Electric vans are here and but in short supply. Many features are the same for all electric vehicles, and electric vans for sale. They are all using technology created by third parties. Everyone has heard of Elon Musk and Tesla but there are actually very few players in electric vans. The limiting factors are the cobalt and Lithium that is required for the battery packs.
Electric Van Range
82 – 150 miles this depends on the temperature Citroen offer 200 and 300 KM ranges on theirs
Using equipment such as the radio, heaters, wipers uses energy and reduces range Things like aircon will futher reduce the range so after say 24 months a realistic range of 50 miles is pheasible using aircon on a hot day and if van isnt fully charged
As time goes on like any battery capacity is reduced so after say 5 years at 10,000 miles per annum the batteries could be at 50% of origional capacity. They are not too different to an iPhone battery but prices on electric van batteries will fall over the next 10 years as recycling gets better and more efficient

Cadmium/ Cobalt/ Lithium is super rare, and electric vans have no engines to wear out. Real engines anyway. So the values are held. The batteries need changing after say 1000 cycles but the costs of battery replacement fall by 20% per year
