Electric utility vehicle manufacturer Sevic has inaugurated the very first 500 square meters showroom and testing area at the company’s headquarters in Bochum, Germany. Sevic is already manufacturing the V500e compact light commercial vehicle. First deliveries are about to start as well, according to the manufacturer.
“Finally, a patented cargo swap system with currently six different load boxes on the vehicle ensures a quick exchange of transport superstructures. In a matter of minutes, users can, for example, switch from a sales box with roller shutters, as in the test vehicle, to a pick-up superstructure with the help of a standard forklift. You should have experienced live how easy and fast this really is,” declared Sevic Managing Director, Alexander Brilis.
Sevic: the new showroom in Bochum
In a relaxed atmosphere, e-mobility experts will provide information about the various configuration options and performance data, right through to financing options and the various service points throughout Germany. Those who would like to take a closer look can drive the vehicles onto the lifting platform in the neighbouring technical centre and really see the V500e from all sides. Various touch panels allow individual vehicle configurations even without a human advisor. In addition, various charging options can be tried out on site – with the option of a Schuko plug or Type 2 plug.
After Sevic announced its new V500e model back in April, they have undergone intensive testing in Bochum since mid-June and will now be safely delivered to customers in Germany in the next few weeks. The purchase price of the Sevic V500e, which is manufactured entirely in Europe, is €24,900 net (plus bodywork and transfer) for the vehicle with the smaller battery size with 16.5 kilowatt hours (kWh) and a range of up to 150 km. On the other hand, the long-range model with a 33-kWh battery and a range of up to 300 km is available for €29,500 net plus bodywork and transfer.
