The eSprinter’s batteries are securely mounted beneath the body, so do not impinge on cargo carrying space. As a result, the L2 (medium length), H2 (high roof) eSprinter’s 11m3 load volume is identical to that of its diesel-engined, front-wheel drive stablemate, and half a cubic metre larger than its rear-wheel drive equivalent.
“At Jigna’s Finest Catering we’re building a fantastic reputation for the quality of our food, which includes Indian, Chinese, Italian and Thai menus, as well as popular favourites such as pizzas and burgers, and we’re now seeing a lot of repeat business,” said Shimir.
“The eSprinter is a great asset for our growing company, and has already attracted positive feedback from customers. The spacious cargo area is more than big enough to carry everything we need, and it looks fantastic in the black and yellow livery that mirrors the uniforms we wear when working – even the wheel trims are black.”
He explained: “We have children and as we live and work in London were keen to help improve air quality by choosing a vehicle that produces zero harmful tailpipe emissions. It’s gratifying to know that we’re doing our bit for the environment.
“The eSprinter is also proving highly cost-effective to run, not least because it’s exempt from the £15 daily Congestion Charge. It’s every bit as safe and well put together as you would expect of a Mercedes-Benz and unlike most of the diesel-engined vans we’ve rented in the past, it’s also a real pleasure to drive.”
Jigna’s Finest Catering’s order was managed by Rossetts Commercials Van Sales Executive Mike Payne. “The service was brilliant,” added Shimir. “Mike arranged the finance, sorted the livery, and made the entire acquisition process as simple as possible – I couldn’t have asked for more.”
