Electric van generates huge interest in BCA auction
The 2008-registered long wheelbase, high roof van in white was based on the Ford Transit chassis and was entered for sale at BCA Blackbushe by a leasing company. The van had been doing courier work in the London metropolis and had covered just 14,000 miles from new.
Offered with a comprehensive service history and records of the conversion, the van sold for £10,100 following some very competitive bidding from bidders in the auction hall and via BCA’s Live Online service.
'Clearly it’s a rare occurrence for electric LCVs to reach the remarketing arena,' explained Duncan Ward, BCA’s general manager, commercial vehicles. 'But the widespread interest this van generated suggests both buyers and sellers are looking very closely at the price performance of these vehicles.'
He added: 'There is undoubtedly a lot of interest in electric power to combat the rising cost of traditional fuels, with fleets, leasing companies and end-users looking for economical and environmentally-friendly alternatives in the commercial vehicle sector.'
