With the zero emissions capability of an electric vehicle, and the range of a conventional van, the VN5 is the embodiment of modern, all-day green operations.
Breaking down preconceptions about the capabilities of electric vans, the VN5 can handle every mile of every journey and fulfil all the operational needs of a fleet or business.
Powered by proven eCity technology which combines a fully electric powertrain with a range-extender to give operators the freedom to go anywhere, including routes previously considered out-of-bounds for an electric vehicle.
Proven in the toughest urban environments, eCity technology is the universal solution for modern intra- and inter-urban operations.
Long-distance journeys, short hops, or multiple trips into and out of urban zero-emissions zones: the VN5 can handle them all.
The electric drivetrain gives a Pure EV range of 58 miles* – while an efficient range-extender unlocks a new level of capability, allowing the VN5 to cover over 300 miles* before needing to refuel or recharge.
*Subject to Whole Vehicle Type Approval certification. Measured by the WLTP (Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure).
Three flexible drive modes (Pure EV, Smart and Save) allow drivers to tailor the driving profile to their surroundings.
Drivers can choose when and where they use pure, zero-emission electric power, and when to deploy the range-extender to preserve electric range.
Put simply, range is not a concern with VN5.
The VN5 eliminates the need to stop or change vehicles between cross-country journeys, meaning less time lost and more productivity.
With its Pure EV drive mode allowing zero-emissions operation, the VN5 is truly at home in city. Its manoeuvrability is second to none, with a market-leading 10.1m turning circle and fast, easy loading – so narrow streets are no problem.
Geo-fencing capability means the vehicle can automatically switch to Pure EV drive mode upon entering an urban Clean Air Zone - avoiding emission charges, then back to Smart or Save mode on exiting the city, ready for a longer-distance motorway journey - all without driver input.
Make fewer trips thanks to the VN5’s generous cargo compartment with a payload of up to 830kg.
The spacious, well-shaped cargo compartment with a capacity of up to 5.5m3 is illuminated with efficient LED lights, and can accommodate two Euro pallets – which can be loaded through either the side doors or rear doors.
Easy to customise to individual requirements, the cargo space is naturally suited to a wide range of professional uses. Be it small or medium-sized enterprise, commercial fleet operator or 'Blue Light' emergency services, VN5 is built for the task.
Sharing the distinctive styling of the iconic London taxi, VN5 draws upon our heritage as the leader in the taxi sector for over a century. VN5 features a front end common with the purpose-built electric TX taxi, combined with bold yet clean surfaces.
VN5 is designed to stand out from the crowd, and built for work; with its total range complemented by fast and flexible charging, durable build and long service intervals. Large loading capacity, accessible cargo space, and outstanding efficiency help operators get the most from every journey.
