We are delighted to announce the launch of an affordable 100% electric welfare unit. You can see the full specification here.

Under HSE provision of welfare facilities for construction workers, the demand for mobile Welfare Units has grown in recent years with many specialist converters now offering custom built solutions.

The majority of these units have been based on the historic LWB diesel panel van, though in recent months a number of operators have put new 3.5t electric-based vehicles into service, but at great cost, i.e. circa £70k plus.

E-Van Guru has been working with a number of these established converters to develop an ‘affordable’ 100% electric Welfare Unit.

Brian Bachelor, MD at E-Van Guru commented:

‘Though there are a number of electric LCV manufacturers now in the market it was important to chose a proven platform with an acceptable range, in addition to meeting all M1 crash test and type approval requirements.

We settled on the Nissan eNV200 Acenta XL (Voltia) 40kwh panel van, with a WLTP combined cycle range of 187 miles per charge and minimum maintenance costs it offers the most proven electric LCV currently in the market.’


The base conversion carries a crew of four, and can also meet all of their welfare requirements i.e. power, heat, hot water and toilet facilities. It includes roof mounted solar panels to top up the onboard dedicated Lithium batteries, which will allow sufficient power for a normal 8-10 hour shift.

You can see the full specification here.

The complete vehicle price starts from £49,900.00 plus VAT, 1st reg fee and RFL and we do have base unit stocks available for conversion.

We are also able to offer customised options on request.
