Gardener’s zippy electric vans are quiet, comfortable and a pleasure to drive.
1st Class Gardens is a family-owned business. They supply garden and lawn services across Tāmaki-makau-rau.
The team bought their first electric van a few years ago. It proved so cheap to run that they bought a second one just 2 years later. This made 1st Class Gardens a mostly electric business. They also have an e-bike (with trailer), plus lawn mowers and tools powered by batteries, not petrol. They do still have one petrol vehicle, which they use as a back-up. But they offset its emissions through Z Energy and Permanent Forest NZ.
The team love their electric vans. They say they’re zippy, with great take-off. They’re also quiet and comfortable — a real pleasure to drive.
“Our vans do everything we need them to do,” says Chris Lange, Founder and Director. “They really are the best work vans we’ve ever had. We won’t be looking back — electric vehicles are the future.”
