Electric trucks taken into service by Takealot in Western Cape

News Flash

  • Takealot will be using JAC electric trucks powered by Aeversa and leased from AVIS, for their deliveries in the Western Cape.
  • The Jac N75EV electric trucks have a 400km-plus daily driving range and have advanced safety features.

“To keep elevating its approach to sustainability, Takealot has worked closely with Aeversa to strategise and implement optimal integration methods, ensuring the seamless operation of the fleet in the Western Cape. The support from Avis onboarding the fleet is a first-of-its-kind project in the world of commercial vehicle leasing,” the company said in a statement.

“This partnership is about so much more than electric trucks and charging stations; we envision this as the first step towards a much-needed shift in logistics. Through this partnership, we are excited to weave a more sustainable approach into the fabric of logistics and transport in South Africa,” said Rick Franz, CEO of Aeversa.
