Could the real surge in EVs be vans not cars?

Schroders believe that the real surge in electrification will be vans, not cars; there are good reasons to support this view. Many towns and cities are planning increasing zero emission zones and banning ICE vehicles from town centres. Delivery vans can be charged overnight or after a shift or in those bigger cities where deliveries need to be made during the night, charging can take place during daylight hours when solar energy could provide extremely cheap electricity.  

Those logistics firms which make the early move will have lower fuel costs and a competitive advantage over competitors who persist with traditional petrol or diesel vans.

The Schroders report, published in CityAM, can be seen here.
