write a review about the Modec
The Modec range is quiet, pollution free
and with a carrying capacity to put most others in the shade, the Modec
range could be the future of urban delivery. Developing an impressive
102bhp and 300Nm of torque, Modec vans can carry two tonnes up to one
hundred miles at fifty miles an hour with zero emissions - all from a
Modec is a sound business choice with zero congestion charges, zero road
tax and zero operator licence requirements and has close to zero effect
on our environment.
With a massive 300Nm of torque available
from rest and a single gear to cover their normal operating range, Modec
vans are easy use and operate.
Modec vans make sound commercial as well
as environmental sense. Intelligent design means inherently low
maintenance costs from features such as ‘bounce-back’ lower body panels
that can absorb minor impacts and a motor that has just 3 moving parts
(compared to over 300 in a typical diesel engine). Features like these
translate directly into benefits such as long 20,000 mile service
intervals and low insurance rates.
Zero tailpipe emissions mean that Modec
vans are the intelligent choice for urban environments where exhaust
fumes are an enduring problem. Whisper quiet, they’re ideal for early
morning and late night deliveries in residential or retail areas that
might otherwise be prevented by the noise pollution of a conventional
Modec’s excellent environmental credentials help to ensure that
your business can gain the credit it deserves for operating in a
socially responsible manner. And when it finally reaches the end
of its working life, you can be reassured by the fact that over 90% of
each Modec van is recyclable.
Modec vehicles are available in a number
of variants including drop side, box van and chassis cab.

I don't own one (Modec shortcab panel
van), but have driven one twice now. Really nice to drive but I do
understand the criticisms I've seen, which are that the rear-access
slider door to the cab is an annoying feature as it sacrifices valuable
loadspace (and the reasoning used by Modec doesn't impress). Proper cab
doors are available on the longcab variant. And the other criticism is
that by insisting on marketing a design which ignores important category
thresholds, on size and tax bandings (which matter a lot to fleet
managers) they are denying themselves potential business and possibly
going to find themselves scrabbling to win seriously big orders.
That said, the pleasure of driving the Modec, for anyone who does find
it suitable, is immense, and truly confirms that battery power can do
the job. My last drive was with a 1.1tonne pallet of concrete paving
slabs onboard, crossing a city. I was wary of one particular hill, and
was able to take a run at it and it coped OK. I have not yet tested it
in heavy traffic on a steep hill and will report again when I have.
