Clean transition

From our initial all electric model developed in conjunction with Renault Trucks in 2019, we go in to 2021 with several manufacturer's hybrid & electric vehicles now available to offer as specialist passenger vehicles. These include Renault Trucks, Renault UK, Vauxhall Motors, Ford, Fiat Professional, Peugeot, Mercedes and Maxus UK. With capacities from 5 to 17 seats and 1 to 3 wheelchairs, the variety of possible applications continues to widen.

Working with manufacturers as an Accredited converter Minibus Options is at the forefront in providing specialist passenger vehicles on the cleanest commercial platforms available. Ongoing developments from manufacturers demonstrate a commitment to increasing range and payload at a rate which will see parity with ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) powered vehicles in the coming decade.

Of course the Road to Zero is not a simple switch from current technology to a fully electric platform. For a few that will be possible, but for most it will mean evaluating the steps between here and the destination and transitioning from existing vehicles to cleanest emission diesel, possibly to hybrid and to full electric as and when technology, infrastructure and economics allow.

Current Hybrid and Electric platforms offer various levels of range and payload, however as yet there are none that can compare directly with a diesel variant. Minibus Options will be pleased to assist Customers in reviewing specifications and recommending the most suitable platform for the application.

Another happy customer.

Here is a pic of our electric minibus’s first trip to the Tighnabruaich area – a 55.4 mile round trip of hills, rough roads and elderly people requiring use of the ramp… after a couple of weeks testing the battery capacity closer to home we thought we’d give the far-flung areas a try and were only slightly apprehensive about running out of power in the back of beyond with a van full of people who can’t walk very far… anyway – all went well, they all loved it and still 33% battery when we got back to base… Thank you for seeing this order through… we still have a lot to learn about the vehicle but as exercise in showing that electric vehicles can work in remote rural areas we are on the right track…
