Electric vehicles to the fore at 2020 Commercial Vehicle Show

Electric vehicles (EVs) are going to be HUGE at this year’s Commercial Vehicle (CV) Show in Birmingham, United Kingdom. The exhibition takes place from April 28 to 30

The UK-based manufacturer London EV Company (LEVC) will display its new all-electric van to the public for the first time. This electric light commercial vehicle (LCV) will be built at the company’s Coventry plant, and full details of the van – including specs and pricing – will be unveiled at the Show.

Vauxhall will hold the world premiere of the new Vivaro-E, an all-new EV version of its Luton-built van. This will be offered with a choice of 50 and 75 kW powerplants and a range of up to 297 km. Full details will be given at the CV Show, where it will be shown alongside the new Movano, a full-sized LCV.

Peugeot and Citroën will showcase the e-Expert and e-Dispatch for the first time, alongside the smaller Partner-Electric and Berlingo-Electric.

Renault’s exhibit will have a strong focus on its future LCV product range, with the EZ-Flex final-mile-solution study vehicle, a development vehicle showing product innovations to come.

Ford Commercial Vehicles will display a full range of LCVs from its stand, and will feature its Street Scooter, an EV final-mile delivery solution for city centres.

Mercedes-Benz is returning to the CV Show in 2020 with the new Mercedes e-Vito van, as well as a range of its latest BlueEfficiency-powered commercial vehicles.

A range of efficient hybrid and EV final-mile solutions is also set to be unveiled at the show, with manufacturers such as Bradshaw Electric Vehicles showcasing a range of zero emission, city centre-specific EVs.

Show director, Murray Ellis, comments, “Championing the latest advancements in the sector is key to the continued success of the Commercial Vehicle Show and we’re pleased to welcome these new products to the event in April.

“As the industry’s largest and most established trade show, companies are utilising the global platform offered to launch the very latest innovations from within the sector. This means our visitors will enjoy first-hand access to a fantastic range of products and services from across the whole road transport, distribution and logistics supply business.”
