MAN eTGE Tipper vs Vauxhall Movano-e Tipper
In recent years, there has been a huge amount of noise around the electric motor. There’s no guessing why really considering the challenges we’re facing with the threat of climate change. It is now clear that we must find an alternative to fossil fuels and we must find it quickly. To many, this alternative is clearly electric power. So, manufacturers across the globe have made it their mission to expand this technology and build electric vehicles which are both capable and practical. Now in 2023, we have a myriad of electric vehicles on the market, ranging from small electric scooters right through to large payload electric vans.
When it comes to vans, these are unquestionably the youngest vehicles in the electric generation. After all, it has taken many years to develop the battery capabilities and the electric motor efficiency to effectively power a large van. However, after many years of hard work, the technology is finally here. Nowadays, there are a plethora of vans on the market which use electric motors and it can, at times, be difficult to wade through this selection to find the right one for you. So, let’s have a look at a few of the front runners.
Over ten years ago, if someone had told you there would be a selection of tipper vans powered by an electric motor which were actually practical, the likelihood is you wouldn’t have believed them. However, this vision is now firmly part of our reality and this has caused a slight issue. With all of the misinformation about modern technology, it can be difficult to figure out which van is actually best for you. So, when people look at two of the electric van front runners, Man and Vauxhall, it is often a touch overwhelming and not least confusing. Here, in this blog, we’ll try to make it a little easier for you to choose between the MAN eTGE Tipper vs Vauxhall Movano-e Tipper.
Engines and Spec
Naturally, both of these vans run completely on electric power. So, there’s no hybrid technology here, they are both completely electric. This, of course, means that you’ll be doing your bit to save the environment, but you’ll also vastly reduce your travel costs. For starters, you can wave goodbye to road tax and there’s more too! Congestion charge, low emission zones, and fueling your van will all be far cheaper than ever before! However, this is all well and good, but your van will still need to have a fair amount of power behind it. So, let’s have a look at these two tippers’ statistics.
As for the Man eTGE, this van has a myriad of great features and its electric motor is impeccably reliable. Many van specialists have highlighted the vehicle’s exceptional reliability, which is, of course, a huge factor when it comes to vans. After all, this vehicle will probably take a little bit more of a beating than your standard car, so it must be up to the job.
Vauxhall’s main strength when it comes to its electric motor is its range. Naturally, with the slightly increased time it takes to top your vehicle up, you will want your van to have the longest range possible. With the Vauxhall, you’ll have a highly impressive 139 miles with the smallest motor variant. This range finger really is incredibly impressive and will ensure that you can easily get to and from your work in one charge.
As you might expect, the interior in both of these vans really is second to none. They both boast modern, bright, and comfortable spaces that truly feel well-designed. In a van, it is incredibly important that you have enough space to store your valuables and tools. And with a tipper van, there is every chance that you will be using the van for some heavy-duty work. Tools such as spades, shovels and chainsaws will probably be commonplace and you must have the space to store these. With both of these vans, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to storage, so you needn’t worry!
What’s more, they both have incredible visibility and have little in the way of blind spots, of course, a huge factor in the van’s driveability. This aspect is incredibly important as you will probably spend a fair amount of time driving every day, so you need the van to be as comfortable and easy to handle as possible.
One thing is for sure, with either of these vans you’ll certainly save a huge amount of money on your running costs. After all, congestion charges, low emission zones, and road tax will all be completely free. It must also be mentioned that when it comes to payload, the Vauxhall does have superior statistics on this front.
