The use of electric vehicles brings a set of new challenges that organisations will have to learn to deal with. One of the most important concerns quite rightly is safety, particularly in respect of reversing, as the lack of engine noise means a reversing vehicle is often unheard.
Other issues are inevitably battery use and getting the maximum efficiency out of each charge.
Eden Tyres & Servicing is a family run business that has been keeping their customers safe on the roads since 1981. Keen to look at solutions to the challenges of using electric vehicles they agreed to work with Parksafe on a trial of their PS±EV Eco Save Electric Vehicle Device.
In the trial a brand new Mercedes eVito 2021 was sent out on a daily route of approximately 68 miles. The same route was taken each day and it covered a number of stops and starts to deliver tyres.
On days 1 and 2 the standard vehicle was used and on days 3 and 4 the vehicle had the PS±EV Eco Save device fitted. We changed the driver each day and consistency of kw/increased.
