Click here to write a review about the ZeVan

 

Zevan® are new electric vehicles manufactured in Wales by Stevens Vehicles Ltd.  Stevens Vehicles Ltd are a new British manufacturer of zero emission electric vehicles for personal and commercial use.  The vans are designed with the brief to create a low environmental impact vehicle range - from well to wheel - that will be economically viable for global village transport.  

The vehicles are designed to maximise internal space relative to external footprint dimensions.  This means that although the vehicle is shorter and narrower than most compact vehicle, it is taller, giving the equivalent space of a much larger vehicle.

Economically, the switch to electric vehicles simply cuts costs, from whichever way.  Running costs are less than 2p a mile. Batteries and motors are maintenance free, making servicing easy.  Lastly, above their obvious environmental credentials, our vehicles provide good PR and promotional opportunities for commercial customers.

ZeVans aren't just good because they're electric. Low environmental impact from well to wheel is at the heart of our design and production philosophy: 

  • To cut emissions at development stage by using existing proven technology wherever possible.
  • Production is low impact because complexity has been designed out. This also makes low volume production, close to market possible.
  • Reduced transportation by manufacturing in the UK for our UK customers.
  • Vehicles are energy efficient because they are light. Lighter than equivalent sized petrol or even equivalent sized electric vehicles

As a result our vehicles emit half as much CO2 as the best petrol and diesel vehicles over their lifetime. This calculation even assumes the electric power for your car is sourced from normal energy supply.

Financing:

  • £10 a day – A standard ZeVan® can cost from £10 a day through a standard HP agreement (example based on a typical customer, arranged by Saracen Finance Ltd).
  • Leasing of batteries is available.  This is often regarded as desirable, as it enables customers to pay for batteries (the ‘fuel’) over the life of the vehicle in the same way that they currently pay for petrol and diesel, rather than paying for it all upfront.  With full leasing and including electricity costs, the batteries cost under 15p a mile.
  • Lease purchase, hire purchase, rental and other financing options also available.
