New electric mini-van launched

ePower Trucks is launching a new battery-powered mini-van at IOG Saltex.

The mia U is a compact panel van, designed for urban transport and delivery applications. At 1.64m and 3.19m long, it has a range of up to 100km (62 miles) and a top speed of 100km/h (62mph).

Jerry Hanss, managing director of ePower Trucks, said: “The range, payload, price and running costs of the mia U combine to make it a really attractive electric van for tradesmen, contractors and delivery companies.”

The 12kWh battery pack can be fully recharged in five hours and is compatible with standard EV charging points offering 220V/16A charging. The batteries are warrantied for three years or 50,000km. The vehicle is warrantied for two years.

The mia has a single central seat in the cab and slide doors for easy access/egress. Standard features include ABS brakes, driver airbag, LED brake and indicator lights and a battery power indicator. Options include a passenger seat, roof rack and roller side panel.

      @Jon - Good morning Jon. The range of cars and vans will launch nationwide in January 2013. Please continue to monitor websites and trade press for details. What is your interest in EVs. Do you wish me to contact you to discuss the range further? David Carter
