There's a new van in town...


Innovation Automotive to Launch ‘Next Level’ DFSK and Skywell Electric Vans

Innovation Automotive, the UK’s first multi-brand electric vehicle company, is reinventing itself ahead of introducing three new electric vans.

The medium-sized van is expected to be based on the Dongfeng Sokon RuiChi EC75, a Chinese model powered, in its home territory, by a 42kWh battery pack that’s good for a range of 156 miles.

The upcoming vans and pickups will be produced with DFSK and Skywell, partner OEM brands of Innovation Automotive. DFSK, a member of the Seres Group, has over a decade of experience selling LCVs in the UK, while Skywell, supported by the electronics giant Skyworth, manufactures a broad range of vehicles, including the Skywell BE11 SUV.

“We are hugely excited to be launching our ‘Next Level Vans’, which, in true Innovation Automotive style, combine great productivity and low cost of ownership.,” explains Samir Hmicho, chairman of Innovation Automotive.

“With three distinctive products and a range of body lengths and heights, we have a product to suit every business.”

Logistics UK's Senior Policy Manager Denise Beedell commented: "The announcement of new van models coming to the UK market is great news, providing greater choice for van operators seeking to decarbonise their operations.

"Vans are the workhorse of logistics and a wider range of vehicle options is an important element if van operators are to be able to transition their fleets to zero emission successfully."
