In its latest research, Frost & Sullivan has concluded that –
“electric vehicles should rapidly grow to represent 4% to 10% of the total lightweight commercial vehicle market during the next two years. This space provides many opportunities for EV products due to the drivers often having fixed routes, predefined cargo weights, and relatively low mileage throughout the day”.
In addition, the vehicles regularly return “Back to Base” each night, offering a convenient charging location and predictable schedule.

The I’MOVING pure electric range to be launched initially in the UK includes The Jolly 2000, an N1, 3.5t GVW vehicle as well as its smaller version, The Ecomile, that both qualify for the UK Government OLEV grant.
The vehicles are available with a huge range of body options from pick up to box vans. With a maximum 1.9t payload, the Jolly 2000 provides the ideal solution for the transportation of commercial goods.
Both vehicles use the latest lithium ion batteries and are particularly suited to Back to Base roles such as mail and parcel delivery, inner city requirements and local authority needs.
They have enjoyed growing sales success in cities throughout Europe and the world, including Rome, Milan, Frankfurt, Brussels, and Beijing.
