Following our unsuccessful trial of the VW electric offering a couple of months back we have moved onto the Mercedes E-Sprinter for our next test.

Aside from the limits of capacity and range the practicality of being able to charge this size vehicle in London quickly is challenging to say the least – far more ‘fast charging’ points with oversized vehicle access are needed! Zap Map is certainly useful – to identify the location, type of charging point and whether it’s in use or whether it’s out of order(!) but accessibility for a vehicle approximately 4 meters in length is another matter. Our driver feedback so far is very positive – comfort and ease of drive score high.
