Micro EVs: The Future of Your City?

April 20, 2018

Garia Utility Street Legal Electric Vehicle

Compact, efficient and environmentally friendly Micro EV’s could soon be taking over a city near you!

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few years, chances are you are more than aware of the growing pressure from governments and local councils to move both public and commercial transportation towards a green and pollution-free future.

Last year ministers unveiled a new £255m fund for councils to put to work tackling emissions throughout the country.Whats more, congestion charge stile zones for the cities with the heaviest pollution are also in discussion throughout the UK and with sales of new petrol and diesel cars and vans to be banned around the country from 2040, the days of the gas guzzling motor vehicle are certainly now numbered.

But What is the Future of Vehicles?

Undoutably fully electric vans, cars and lorries will be a big part of this electric revolution.However, “Micro Electric Vehicles” are predicted by many to see significant growth in the near future with a recent report from “Research and Markets” predicting the market to reach over $35billion globally by 2017.

Lithium, gel or acid battery-operated Microvans, trucks and utility vehicles pack in a variety of benefits including safety, efficiency, high performance and eco-friendliness.

Micro electric vehicles are fast becoming a go-to vehicle for applications such as facility management and last mile delivery.

Here are some ways in which micro electric vehicles can be beneficial:

Eco-Friendly Vehicles

The small size and lightweight features of micro EVs act in their favour. These vehicles are expected to reduce pollution by cutting congestion and thereby slashing the amount of toxic air released into the environment.

Increased Accessibility to Difficult Areas

Micro EVs can be manoeuvred through difficult spaces such as tight corners and narrow areas with utmost efficiency. This feature finds a new application of these vehicles in hitherto unused areas.

The compact Garia Utility City vehicle available from Carryway, can be used indoors, in city centres, large facilities and industrial parks. This zero-emission micro electric vehicle is approved for road-use. So, you can use this vehicle on access roads and side streets or low-speed highways.

The Esagono Geco Shuttle  is another efficient road-legal model that can be used in conference rooms, factory floors and inside large resorts. In large facilities, this 6-9 seater can be used to move guests around with great efficiency, reducing the time and cost of allocating more resources.

Greater Efficiency

The speed, compactness, easy manoeuvrability and ability to access even difficult-to-reach areas make micro EVs an ideal transport for tasks that demand extreme efficiency, such as last mile delivery.

Carryway also supply the Esagono Gastone Utility Van, which is a road-legal vehicle with a 130km maximum range.

This zero-emissions micro electric vehicle provides great transport for facility and waste management.

Adding to the benefits is the vehicle’s maintenance-free Lithium/Gel batteries. Adding to the efficiency of micro EVs is their load capacity. The Esagono Gastone, for example, comes with a maximum load capacity of 1250 kg.

Safer Option for Pedestrians

Their small size and light weight make micro EVs safer for pedestrians. These are also low-speed vehicles, which adds to the safety. The Esagono Grifo Shuttle, for example,  features a pedestrian-friendly maximum speed of 25mph.

Andrew Fairnie – Golf Services Manager, The Gleneagles Hotel

Our guests have high expectations when they come to golf at Gleneagles, and the classic aesthetics and high quality finish on the Club Car vehicles have met their needs perfectly.

The GPS system in particular has been very popular – in addition to providing course information, it even allows golfers to email themselves their score card to review at home.

Daryn Cochrane – Head of Golf & PGA Professional, The Westerwood Hotel & Golf Resort

Thank you for the excellent customer service that we recently received from Hugh Healy, Carryway Support. Hugh was very thorough and had excellent communications with us regarding our buggy fleet at The Westerwood Resort – nothing was too difficult for him.

Nick Rushworth – Golf Operations Director, MacDonald Linden Hall

It is a pleasure to work with Carryway, the service and support they provide has been first class. We originally signed up for 14 brand new buggies for one year to sample working with the company.

We were pleased with the service and the product provided and have since signed up for the next few seasons and hopefully with many more to come after that.
