The UK’s Arrival is expanding its presence across Europe and is taking the Arrival Van to nine countries in four months including Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Norway, Netherlands, and Sweden.
The company’s recent LeasePlan partnership announcement is based on an initial order of 3,000 vans and will see the Arrival Van rolled out across many of these European cities.
Arrival says all its vehicles are designed to maximise the safety and well-being of drivers and the public on our roads and streets using advanced technologies. These advanced features include ADAS, such as Advanced Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Keep Assist, and Adaptive Cruise Control.
Other technologies to help the driver include digital e-mirrors, a 360-degree surround view, Traffic Sign Recognition, and many more.
The Arrival Van has started public road trials with key customers this summer and is expected to start full production in Q3, 2022.
Avinash Rugoobur, President at Arrival, says: “We’re thrilled to be bringing the Arrival Van to customers and consumers in Europe in the coming months. Over the past year, we’ve seen tremendous demand for the Arrival Van globally – in particular in Europe – as more and more fleet operators are looking to decarbonise their operations, in line with global public policy.
He adds: “To enable businesses to transition to electric vehicles and excel in their operations while improving the environment, we’ve worked with operators and drivers to design and produce the Arrival Van to be a best-in-class solution with a TCO that makes the transition the best possible commercial decision too.”
Arrival was founded in 2015 and now employs over 2,000 people.
