Pod Point has agreed a fleet deal for 60 VN5 electric vans from the LEVC (London Electric Vehicle Company).

Pod Point’s engineers will use the VN5 electric vans when installing EV charging points across the UK, as well as helping the business to maintain its network of more than 6,200 public charging bays.

Joerg Hofmann, CEO of LEVC, said: “Pod Point is a major operator in supporting the move towards electrification and LEVC is pleased to be working with such a recognised brand, with our VN5 assisting technicians as they continue to build the UK's charging infrastructure.”

The VN5 electric van is based on the same architecture and eCity technology as LEVC’s TX electric taxi.

It has a pure EV range of 64 miles (WLTP) and a total flexible range of 319 miles.

Graham Evans, Chief of Operations for Pod Point, said: “Vehicle electrification is one of the most powerful ways to stop travel damaging the earth and our mission is to put an EV charge point everywhere you park.

“We are delighted to be working with LEVC and the VN5 is a natural fit for our business and our growing team of expert installers.”

The introduction of the LEVC VN5 to the Pod Point vehicle fleet follows a significant year of growth for the EV charging provider across both its home and commercial customer segments.

As a result, the business has increased its headcount by 66%, up to 409 employees including 60 dedicated in-house installers.

The vans feature bespoke racking and storage solutions installed by Sortimo, an authorised conversion partner of LEVC.
