UKMail starts trials of Modec electric delivery van

The latest company to start trials of the Modec battery-powered delivery van is UKMail. UKMail is a division of Business Post Group and they are operating the Modec van in west London within the congestion zone. The electric van has a number of potential advantages. Along with the obvious emissions advantage (as in no direct emissions) electric vehicles are exempt from paying the congestion charge, and they don't have to pay road taxes. The Modec is capable of carrying two tonnes up to 100 miles at speeds of up to 50 mph. The silent operation also makes it suitable for deliveries in residential areas in early morning hours or in the evening.
