Green Automotive Company announced that its subsidiary, GoinGreen, has signed an agreement with I’MOVING to exclusively distribute its range of pure electric commercial vehicles in the UK. The companies have also agreed to explore opportunities to collaborate in the introduction of the pure electric trucks and vans to the United States where vehicles have been submitted recently for homologation certification. GoinGreen is a one-stop-shop for sales of sustainable transport solutions – from electric bicycles to vans and trucks. Italy-based I’MOVING designs and manufactures sustainable vehicles for both the public and private sector.
In its latest research, Frost & Sullivan has concluded that electric vehicles should rapidly grow to represent 4 percent to 10 percent of the total lightweight commercial vehicle market during the next two years, according to GoinGreen. 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 range of body options from pickup to box vans. With a maximum 1.9t payload, the Jolly 2000 provides the ideal solution for the transportation of commercial goods, according to GoinGreen. 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.
