Fleet management company, Webfleet, has won a Guinness World Record title in the UK for the greatest distance travelled by an electric van on a single charge.
The 500.8km (311.18 miles) journey took 13 hours and nine minutes to complete.
The company said the van, FIAT E-Scudo, needed no modifications and the route combined urban and rural roads to replicate ‘real world’ conditions.
Beverley Wise, Webfleet Regional Director for Bridgestone Mobility Solutions, said: “This remarkable achievement is testimony to the determination and technological ingenuity of all those involved.
“The record demonstrates not only the capabilities of electric vans and advanced Bridgestone tyre technology for businesses and urban mobility but also the impact that drivers can have on electric vehicle (EV) energy consumption.”
