Keeping in context with the question, which wasKia Niro ICE 1930kg + fuel EV 2080kg
Hyundai Ionic ICE 1469kg + fuel EV 1527kg
VW Golf ICE 1624kg + fuel EV 1540kg (but lower range)
How about some figures for vans?Will van/MH battery banks compared to combustion engines reduce payloads ?
For example, the electric Renault master has a payload of around 430 KG less than the diesel model of same GVW.
The electric Sprinter loses out on over 500 KG payload over similar diesel model.
The additional weight makes converting a 3500 GVW van a bit tricky.
As far as I am aware, the extension to 4250 GVW for B & B1 licenses on electric & plug in hybrids is only for commercials while working.
