LONDON ELECTRIC DELIVERY VAN ASSESSMENT SCHEME
The performance, reliability and maintenance and running costs of 62 battery electric delivery vans, supplied by three manufacturers, in daily use in the Greater London area are being assessed over a three year period in comparison with closely equivalent conventional vehicles on similar duties. The primary purpose is to obtain independent operational experience covering a wide variety of suitable applications over an extended period and provide reliable factual information about the performance of the vehicles in normal daily use with typical loads and drivers. Information of value to operators, the industry and Government will be produced.
