Freight in the City caught up with Drew Bradshaw, joint MD at Bradshaw Electric Vehicles to hear what they'd be exhibiting on stand 31 at the London expo on 7 November.


Which products and services are you planning to promote at the show and why?

Bradshaw is showcasing the new range of Goupil Electric Road Legal Vehicles. They’re designed especially for inner city last mile delivery and service operations. They’re compact, with great manoeuvrability, excellent range and zero emissions.

Are they unique?

Yes! These are innovative European-manufactured commercial vehicles, featuring a modular design that allows a multitude of body types to be fitted. It means there’s a huge range of options, including a Pick-up, Tipper, Pressure washer, Leaf collector, Waste collector, Cage body, Van body and more.

We introduced the range earlier this year to the UK. They are designed from the ground up as 100% Electric Vehicles and made by Goupil, part of the Polaris Group.

For more than 60 years, the Polaris brand has been synonymous with making high quality, breakthrough products - which is a big part of why we love working with them!

Who are you trying to reach with your products and services?

Any commercial customer with a requirement to move loads up to 1200Kg, or carry out cleaning operations.

What is their relevance to urban transport?

The Goupil range offers excellent on-road driving characteristics for inner city applications:

compact size; silent; zero emissions; N1 & L7e road approval;payload up to 1,200kg; max speed of 31mph; range 50 miles; tight turning circle; lithium-ion battery option for even faster recharge; 11 models, many options available
