Overcoming Challenges and Embracing Solutions in the Transition to Electric Vans

In the ever-evolving landscape of commercial vehicles, the shift towards sustainable and eco-friendly options has become more than just a trend—it's a necessity. For installers who rely on their trusty diesel vans, the prospect of making the switch to electric may seem daunting. However, with the right solutions in place, the benefits far outweigh the challenges.

The Charging Conundrum
One of the primary concerns for installers eyeing the transition to electric vans is the charging infrastructure. Unlike diesel vans that can refuel quickly at any fuel station, electric vehicles (EVs) require access to charging stations. Installers are often on the move, making it essential to have a reliable and accessible network.

Allports turnkey solution that addresses the charging challenge. We have a finance offer starting from only 1.99%, Allports Group can install a free charger fitted at your home, or if you already have a charger we can give you a £750 charging card for refuelling on the go.

Conquering Range Anxiety
Range anxiety, the fear of running out of battery power before reaching the destination, is another hurdle for installers considering electric vans. The need to cover extensive distances for customer visits can make the perceived limited range of electric vehicles a cause for concern.

Allports introduces the Renault Trafic E-Tech Red Edition, a game-changer in the world of electric vans. With an industry-leading battery consumption of only 18.7Kw per 100km driven, range anxiety becomes a thing of the past. Installers can now confidently take on long journeys, knowing they can cover a real world range of 172 miles on a single charge.

Counting the Cost
Cost considerations are at the forefront of any business decision. While the long-term benefits of electric vans are apparent, the initial investment can be a roadblock for customers.

Allports addresses the cost concern with competitive financing options. With low-rate finance offer starting from 0%, installers can make the switch without breaking the bank. The Hire Purchase products, including a free charger, and a Contract Hire offer from only £115 per week, make the transition financially feasible.

Turning the Tables: Savings for Installers
For the first time, installers can witness a tangible saving against buying a diesel vehicle. The combination of reduced charging costs, lower maintenance expenses, and financing options that ease the burden make the electric van proposition not just environmentally friendly but financially savvy.

Embracing the Future with Allports
In conclusion, the challenges installers face when contemplating the shift from traditional diesel vans to electric ones are real, but so are the solutions. Allports provides a holistic approach, offering not only electric vehicles with industry-leading efficiency but also addressing charging infrastructure concerns and financial considerations.

With the Renault Trafic Red Edition leading the charge, installers can now embrace the future of sustainable transportation without compromising on performance or budget. It's not just a switch; it's a revolution, and Allports is paving the way.
