Couriers may find that electric vans become much more commonplace over the next few years, it has been claimed.
According to a report on online resource the Green Car Website, EurotaxGlass has asserted that concerns about battery reliability, durability and cost no longer outweigh the long-term benefits of greener vans.
George Alexander, commercial vehicle editor at EurotaxGlass, suggested that the soaring price of fuel is convincing many professional transport companies, including those providing courier services, that electric vans are the best option for city-based deliveries.
"With London’s Low Emission Zone to be contended with and the congestion charge to be paid, those opting for zero-emission vans which avoid these headaches are already benefiting financially," he noted, adding that owners of such vehicles also don't have to pay excise duty or for MOT tests.
In related news, it was previously reported that a supermarket price war has lowered the price of petrol at some outlets, including Sainsbury's, Morrison's and Asda.

The Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) has warned drivers travelling abroad that they should remove any safety camera detectors or satnav systems which highlight safety cameras.
A survey conducted by the group highlighted that only two nations in Europe, the UK and Hungary, permit the use of such devices.
A further 13 countries allow points of interest satnav systems but not camera detection devices, which make drivers aware that they near safety cameras or speed guns.
Neil Greig, director of the IAM Motoring Trust said: “There have been incidents when camera detectors have been literally ripped out by local police. The best thing to do is check if detectors are permitted in the country you plan to visit or simply don’t take one with you.”
Punishments for having such devices can be a fine or confiscation of the gadget depending on which country individuals are travelling in.
Meanwhile, UK motorists, including couriers have been advised by the Automotive Technician Accreditation that they need to be more savvy about their vehicles' servicing needs.
