TECHNOLOGY FOR THE CITY

The VN5 electric van boasts a total flexible range of 304 miles (WLTP) with ultra-low emissions of just 21 g/km CO2 on the combined WLTP* cycle. This particular cycle enables the VN5 to deliver a pure electric zero emission range of over 60 miles*, with the more economical driver achieving up to a 75 miles* range in Pure EV mode, according to WLTP city methodology.

The VN5 runs on a 31 kWh battery and is supported by a petrol driven range-extender, eliminating any range anxieties and providing greater functionality and flexibility. The range extender simply acts as a generator that supplies charge to the battery when required.

*These figures may not reflect real life driving results. Such results will depend upon a variety of factors including fitted accessories (post-registration), weather conditions, driving styles and vehicle loads.

ADAPTABLE OPERATING

VN5 had three drive modes, easily adapting the needs of the driver, further enhancing the operational efficiency. The Pure EV mode runs soles on electric power and provides zero emissions, Save mode initiates the range-extender, conserving electric energy for later use, and Smart mode dynamically alters between battery power and the range-extender for a more efficient drive.

LEADING THE WAY

Unlike a steel equivalent, the bonded aluminium monocoque construction benefits from a higher strength-to-weight ratio, further protecting the driver, passenger and load by absorbing more energy upon impact. With its anodised aluminium body, the VN5 is more resistant to rust than other conventional commercial vehicles, meaning it can last twice as long.

LIQUID COOLING

The VN5 electric van embraces an innovative liquid battery cooling system, distributing a cooling solution to enable the battery to continue to perform well with a consistent temperature that minimises deprivation. Liquid cooling technologies are more effective than unresponsive air cooling systems that use ambient air to cool the battery, the reason for that being, if the outside air is warm, it will not cool the battery as effectively as a liquid refrigerant.

The VN5 battery is protected by an 8 year / 240k miles warranty as standard.​

ACCOMMODATING CHARGE CAPABILITIES

Unlike some competitor vehicles taking hours to charge, VN5’s ability to connect to slow, fast and rapid charger points enables a battery recharge from 0-100% in approximately 30 minutes (using its 50kW charger), meaning less time wasted fuelling/charging and more time on the move.

This particular feature comes standard on all variants on the VN5.

REGENERATIVE BREAKING SYSTEM

With two stages of energy recovery available, VN5 captures a considerable amount of the vehicles kinetic energy when breaking and coverts it in to electricity to help maintain the level of charge in the battery.

The regenerative braking system further enables the driver to control their driving with one pedal, bringing the vehicle to a stop and regenerating power at the same time, simply by releasing the accelerator, in doing so helping to reduce wear on brake pads.

Standard on all variants

FLEET MANAGEMENT DRIVEN BY DATA

With user needs always being at the forefront, VN5 has been made compatible with a range of telematic systems. The continuous on-board data collection gives insight into the driving behaviour, productivity and economy of your fleet. This monitoring and optimisation initiative can help deliver real benefits such as increased uptime and reduced operating costs.

GEOFENCING TECHNOLOGY

VN5 comes ready to accept geofencing technology, which will enable the vehicle to automatically modify its operating settings based on location. For example, the geofencing technology could be set up to activate automatically to ensure the vehicle is switches to Pure EV electric-only mode upon entering a low-emission zone in an inner-city area – as a result, avoiding any emissions charges.

ON POINT MANOEUVRABILITY

VN5 features class-leading manoeuvrability. With an accurate turning circle of just 10.1m, VN5 ensures drivers can always get through the busy urban streets without trouble. The tight turning radius saves constant reversing in busy environments.

EXTERIOR

Standard on all variants.

EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE

eCall emergency response lessens the response times to an incident, an important feat of any vehicle, regardless of its purpose. The system consequently calls the emergency services if in-vehicle sensors recognise a genuine accident. The system can likewise be initiated physically through a SOS button in the cabin.

VEHICLE ALERT SYSTEMS​
