An order of 13 Peugeot e-Expert vans has been supplied for maintenance work in Hull.

The vans have joined the fleet of Kingstown Works Limited (KWL), the principal provider of housing maintenance, street lighting and vehicle fleet services to Hull City Council (HCC).

KWL is said to have chosen the e-Expert due to its range of up to 211 miles from a single charge, maximum payload of 1,226kg, and 6.1m3 load volume, meeting the criteria for its operations.

The new vans bring the total number of Peugeots operated by KWL and HCC close to 200, with Peugeot having supplied 60 electric vehicles to HCC previously.

HCC fleet manager Gary Middleton said: “Peugeot products have proven a first line choice for many years for both KWL and HCC. 

“Given Peugeot’s previous work in providing a wide range of vehicles for both KWL and HCC, the Peugeot e-Expert was a natural successor to progress the continuous electrification of our fleet.

“The impressive specification of the new Peugeot e-Expert was more than enough to make this our next vehicle of choice.”
