LEVC (London Electric Vehicle Company) is supplying 30 VN5 electric vans to bp pulse, leading provider of EV charging infrastructure.

The VN5 electric vans are being used by bp pulse’s electricians when installing EV charging points across the country and will also help field service engineers maintain a UK-wide network of more than 8,000 public charging points.

VN5 is based on the same architecture and proven eCity range-extender technology as LEVC’s TX electric taxi and can achieve a pure EV range of over 60 miles (98 km) and a total flexible range of 304 miles (489 km). The more frugal driver can achieve a 76-mile pure EV city range, according to WLTP city methodology.

It also comes with a class-leading turning circle of 10.1m for unrivalled mobility in busy city environments.

The introduction of the LEVC VN5 to the bp pulse vehicle fleet is the first step in the company’s strategy to electrify its commercial vehicles and means that half of its fleet has now transitioned to electric.

The vans have racking and storage solutions installed by Sortimo – an official conversion partner of LEVC. Sortimo offers a number of bespoke storage solutions for the VN5 to suit all trades and professions.

Through an existing partnership agreement, LEVC also offers new VN5 customers free charging for one year at more than 8,000 bp pulse point locations. bp pulse is also the official home charging partner for LEVC.
