Sevic V500e electric van will be sold and distributed in several European countries. The full electric transporter, manufactured in Bulgaria, have recently reached the company’s headquarters in Bochum, Germany, where some road tests are scheduled.
Sevic V500e, conceived for urban deliveries
“The V500e is simply perfect for use in urban areas and we are delighted with the high quality of workmanship, especially of the chassis and suspension”, stated Sevic Managing Director Alexander Brilis. “The electric motor, combined with the low weight, is very powerful and economical. What pleases me is that in just a few days of testing we have already been approached several times about our compact van. Most people are interested in the electric drive and the corresponding range, but also in the clever design of the charging box. This feedback is very important to us and our test drivers are happy to answer any questions”.
The V500e is already proving to be extremely versatile in use. A patented so-called cargo swap system with currently six different load boxes ensures that the transport superstructures can be exchanged quickly. Within a few minutes, for example, users can switch from a sales box with roller shutters, as in the test vehicle, to a pick-up.
The e-van is also flexible in terms of range and purchase price: the smaller battery size with 16.5 kWh and a range of up to 150 km costs €24,900 net (plus body and transfer); the long-range model with a 33 kWh battery and a range of up to 300 km is available for €29,500 net plus body and transfer.
The dealers for Poland and Italy
Additionally, Sevic has recently announced the expansion of its activities to Poland, where the V500e transporter will be distributed by ANG Vehicle Technologies, a company specializing in innovative designs and special solutions for electric and other alternative fuel-powered vans and trucks. Similarly, we know the name of the dealer working for the Italian market. As reported by our fellow website Vado e Torno, Sevic vehicles will be distributed in Italy by Vehicle Electric Motion, also known as VEM Green.
