We are delighted to announce the launch of E-Van Guru, a new business dedicated to accelerating the adoption of zero-emission commercial vehicles by fleet operators.

This timely new venture is led by Brian Bachelor. Who, with over 30 years’ experience in the commercial vehicle industry, and an advocate for Green Fleets since 2014, is recognised as one of the UK’s leading e-Van experts.

Brian Bachelor, Managing Director E-Van Guru, commented:

“The adoption of electric commercial vehicles has been too slow – with cost, choice, range anxiety and lack of charging infrastructure barriers to take-up – regardless of the environmental benefits. 

Our mission at E-Van Guru is to work in collaboration with manufacturers, automotive dealerships, finance companies, fleet managers and vehicle converters to break-through these barriers to drive the adoption of zero-emission vehicles”.

Choosing the right commercial vehicles for your fleet is important – with payload, size and the number of seats basic considerations. Now, factor in specialist conversions, and a switch from diesel to electric, and decision-making becomes much more complex.

E-Van Guru will accelerate the adoption of zero-emission commercial vehicle fleets through its project based, and on-going consultancy services designed for vehicle dealerships, brokers, vehicle converters and fleet operators.

Brian Bachelor, the driving force behind E-Van Guru, has worked with brands including Volvo Trucks, Isuzu, Mercedes CV, Mitsubishi, VW Commercial Vehicles and most recently Nissan.

At West Way Nissan, Brian and his team negotiated the first major e-van fleet deal in 2014, and have gone on to sell thousands of electric vehicles to SME’s, national fleet, public sector and government agencies.

Brian Bachelor, Managing Director of E-Van Guru, commented:

“After a decade at West Way Nissan, it was a huge decision to leave, as whilst Nissan continue to lead the way with its e-NV200, new market entrants Maxus, and PSA brands (Citroën, Vauxhall and Peugeot) and imminent launches from Ford/VW and Mercedes make this an exciting time to be manufacturer independent.

The response to the launch of E-Van Guru has been phenomenal. From the outset, I will be working with Dynamo Taxis, the manufacturers of the first 100% electric and emission free Hackney black taxi”.
