Road Transport Expo 2022: JOST GB to showcase KKS automatic coupling system
Bradshaw Electric Vehicles is set to exhibit its range of Goupil utility vehicles at brand-new tradeshow Road Transport Expo later this month. The show, which takes place at the NAEC Stoneleigh in Warwickshire from 30 June to 2 July, will act as a one-stop-shop event for the road haulage industry and will showcase the latest trucks, trailers, tankers, tippers, bodies and everything else you need to keep your fleet operation running smoothly. Bradshaw said its all-electric Goupil range enables businesses and organisations to make their last-mile distribution and overall operational needs more sustainable and environmentally friendly.
All vehicles within the Goupil range are equipped with lead-acid or lithium batteries and each can be tailored directly to the customer’s requirements. At the show, Bradshaw will be showcasing its G2, G4 and G6 Goupil vehicles. All vehicles are 100% electric and produce zero tailpipe emissions, making them a sustainable, environmental and cost-effective solution to local authorities, industrial sites, resorts and last-mile delivery companies.
As all-electric compact road utility vehicle, Bradshaw said the G2 range offers an ideal solution for customers who have multiple sites which are connected by public highway. Available with pick-up, cage and van bodies, the G2 has been expertly designed to transport payloads of up to 600kg, whilst retaining small and compact size for convenience of use. With an operational range of between 27 to 62 miles, the G2 range has a payload of between 415 to 533kg and 78 to 596kg depending on the chosen model.
The G4 road vehicles on offer include pick-ups, vans and waste collectors, all designed to transport people and equipment for a variety of different applications. With an operational range of 68 miles and maximum speed of 31mph, the G4 range is equipped with an array of body types to cater to the customer’s specific requirements and feature a safe and secure cabin and both left- and right-hand drive options. The G4’s greater payload offers an ideal electric vehicle for many stop-start and last-mile applications and is ideally suited to low-emission zones, whilst still delivering optimal performance and low vehicle operating costs.
Taking centre stage will be the largest model in the Goupil range, the G6 – which offers a generous payload of up to 1,050kg for the pickup as well as a 9m3 cage body. Designed for a variety of business needs, the fully electric G6 is equipped with a 28.8k lithium battery in order to provide an optimal operational range of 93 miles. Ramsy Labassi, marketing manager at Polaris-owned Bradshaw Electric Vehicles, said: “”We are very much looking forward to showcasing our state-of-the-art Goupil vehicles at the upcoming show, where visitors will be able to see first-hand the versatility of the range and learn about its sustainable advantages.
“Following last year’s successful launch of the G6 Goupil vehicle visitors will also be able to see the G2 and G4 models in various body options.
“With many organisations, businesses and local authorities placing more emphasis on environmental sustainability, the Goupil electric vehicles provide customers with the prospect of not only vastly improving their environmental footprint, but in turn enhancing operational performance and lowering their vehicle operating costs as well.
“As we understand that each customer will have different needs, Bradshaw also offers a bespoke tailormade service to cater directly to the customer’s ever-changing requirements.”
