DFSK Skywell Ruichi EC75 2024 Professional Van

Innovation Automotive, the UK's first multi-generation electric vehicle company, is reinventing itself ahead of the launch of three new electric vans. After launching the compact DFSK EC35 van in the UK in 2021, Innovation Automotive will replace the vans with small, medium, and large vans.

That's a far cry from the upcoming Ford E-Transit Custom's 236-mile range or 230-mile power. Maxus eDeliver 7but UK details are subject to change.
