The eCV1 range is the company’s first commercial vehicle, using its breakthrough, proprietary PACES (Passenger and Commercial EV Skateboard) Platform - a sophisticated, yet cost-effective modular electric vehicle architecture.LEARN MORE
It is flexible, scalable, lightweight and cost effective, an adaptable bonded aluminium platform specifically designed for manufacturing up to 5,000 vehicles per annum.
Batteries are fitted directly to the primary structure, optimising stiffness and minimising weight. The clean sheet design means eCV1 is significantly lighter as well as supporting multiple body designs. PACES Platform complies with ISO regulations and European Small Series Type Approval safety standardsLEARN MORE
WEVC is committed to best practice on the road to net zero, using sustainable and recyclable materials and processes. Our vehicles are designed from the ground up to deliver whole life savings in both cost and CO2 for customers. Planning for midlife upgrades for both drivetrain and trim around a carry-over PACES Platform, gives a target useable life of 20+years rather than the more typical 5-7 years.
We will be offering long term commercial vehicle partnerships with customers through alternative ownership models, including fleet operation and optimisation as a service. In addition, we will be offering servicing and maintenance programs, as well as charging and support infrastructure tailored to fleet users. Vehicle life will be extended by regular refreshes and upgrades, and finally, at end of vehicle life, We will re-purpose body, chassis and powertrain materials at end of vehicle life including viable “second-life” battery applications.
Our vision is to unlock the future for manufacturers of low volume and niche vehicles by offering affordable and sustainable lightweight vehicle structures and assemblies.
For the first time, WEVC offers a fully tested and verified, low cost alternative route to small series production. The inherent flexibility of our scalable PACES Platform means that the structure can be optimised for a wide variety of applications.
This breakthrough is brought about by utilising our FlexTech® Extrusion System to provide a fundamental spaceframe and complementing that with aluminium or composite panels in a complete structure.
The platform provides the basis for a whole new range of bespoke 'last-mile' vans, trucks and buses that are highly customisable, with different body styles.
"The enthusiastic reception to our light weighting and circular economy design philosophy has been overwhelmingly positive, with the fleet operator industry recognising that a disruptive approach is required to meet the incredibly challenging environmental targets and timelines being set by global governments. Our business will be part of the solution."
