Electric Assisted Vehicles (EAV) has been trialling its ultra-lightweight EAV2Cubed electric delivery vehicle at a Scottish boarding school.
The 2Cubed has been used on the 200-acre site of Gordonstoun School for moving maintenance equipment and cleaning supplies, and also for collecting and distributing packages and goods delivered to the front gate of the school.
Gordonstoun principal Lisa Kerr said: “The EAV has been a big hit with both staff and students here at Gordonstoun. Our domestic and maintenance staff have found it very easy to operate and very manoeuvrable around campus.
“Our school community are very environmentally aware and embrace the need for change. The use of these lightweight EAV vehicles at the school and on the estate will help to cut emissions but also help our staff to become more efficient as they can move from task to task more quickly and easily.”
EAV founder and CEO Adam Barmby said: “In a campus environment, the 2Cubed is the perfect solution. The vehicle is extremely benign and moves through the environment quietly, efficiently and safely.
“The front of the EAV was specifically designed to be familiar and non-threatening, so in a location where you have lots of children and young people, like a school or university campus, it doesn’t provoke any anxiety so is the perfect substitute for any urban van or goods vehicle.”
