The new E-Truck is an all-electric, compact light cargo vehicle, built for urban and suburban operations. The 3-wheel vehicle has a tight turning radius of 4.5m. With a payload of up to 400kg, it is designed for light duty applications such as city goods delivery and is ideal for contractors or tradesmen.
The E-Truck is produced by Elecscoot and features the company’s proprietary drive line and battery management system (BMS).
Ian Allison, managing director of Elecscoot, said: “I wanted to provide an affordable electric delivery vehicle that I would be happy to drive. The E-Truck is easy to use, easy to maintain and very easy on the wallet.
“Our electric scooter business has taught us that the best way to provide a fleet-ready vehicle is to have complete control over the drive line and battery management system. We built it, so we know how to provide the best technical support and after-sales service for it.”
E-Truck is available in three configurations with ranges of 112, 180 and 300 miles. The 112 mile version uses lead gel batteries and is priced from just £7,995. With ‘fuel’ from as little as 2p per mile, the E-Truck series delivers excellent whole life cost savings for fleet managers. The vehicle comes in RHD as standard and LHD is available, for safe kerbside deliveries.
Elecscoot is opening a new 21,000sq ft assembly facility in Consett, County Durham, to produce the E-Truck range. It aims to conduct direct sales to fleets and is looking for dealers to target the end-user market.
