With more and more businesses focused on sustainability and a push towards environmentally charged solutions, Ireland can most definitely say that we are witnessing the electric revolution. This revolution is not just based around passenger vehicles, but commercial ranges too. As battery efficiency and technology advance, the shift towards electric commercial vehicles is starting to take shape. No other company has taken strides in this area like Peugeot as they now offer a range of 100% electric vans.
Peugeot's electric vans maintain all the capabilities of conventional diesel versions, but with the added benefits of zero noise, zero vibration, zero emissions and zero odour. A massive development for businesses and the public alike.
As 2022 fast approaches, Peugeot has set the goal of being number 1 on electric van sales and with a complete range of fully electric vans, this goal is very reasonable. Aiming to offer a new level of peace of mind to professionals while reducing emissions, the timing has never been better for this range. In addition to these 100% battery-electric vehicles, Peugeot will move forward with producing its first fuel cell electric van, the e-Expert Hydrogen, before the end of 2021
