Slovakian commercial electric vehicle pioneer GreenWay claims the two vans it leased to its first customer in May have since travelled further in a six-month period than any other electric vehicles.
GreenWay, which supplies fully electric vans for business-to-business (B2B) customers in return for a monthly fee, says the vans it leased to pharmaceuticals and medical supplies company Med-art travelled an average of 38,502 km the equivalent of a round-the-world trip in six months.
The Bratislava-based electric vehicle (EV) company operates a string of battery replacement stations ensuring drained batteries can be replaced instantly rather than having to be recharged to keep vehicles on the move.
GreenWay says Med-art reported the running costs of its EVs were ‘significantly lower’ than those of its conventional vehicles because of the long distances travelled one of the reasons GreenWay targets B2B clients with its 40,000 km and 70,000 km packages.
Med-art also reported no interruption to vehicle availability during the six-month period, proving the vans’ reliability, according to GreenWay.
According to GreenWay’s website, there are 10 battery changing stations across Slovakia as well as in Budapest, Hungary; Brno, in the Czech Republic; and Vleden, Austria, with a further six Slovakian locations in the pipeline.
