UK-based startup arrival is on a mission to make electric vehicles mainstream with its fleet of battery-powered vans.

As city populations increase and our consumer habits evolve, appetite for an on-demand, same-day delivery lifestyle continues to grow. The Arrival Van is made to meet the challenges that come with this shift, providing an elegant, efficient and sustainable solution for last mile delivery and the mobilised workforce.

Designed from the ground up, the Arrival Van can be tailored precisely to individual routes and specific uses - with different heights, lengths and battery capacities available. It’s internal cargo bay is optimised to efficiently carry the most volume and payload on the smallest vehicle footprint possible.

Connectivity is embedded, meaning the Arrival Van functions as part of a connected transport ecosystem - sending and receiving data. It’s a citizen in its own right, affecting everything around it.

The Arrival Van is constructed from a hybrid of aluminium frame and thermoplastic-composite panels, making it much lighter than stamped metal counterparts. It’s body shell is also durable and resilient to damage. Minimising the need for repairs - ensuring the vehicle is on the road for longer.
