“Will your vans be available for sale individually for tradesmen/women or just for fleet operations?”

This is certainly something we are looking at, yes. However, the timing of this is not something we are yet able to announce. Please leave your contact details here: and we’ll get in touch when we have updates.

“What is the ground clearance of the van?”

The ground clearance on all our vans is comparable to others LCVs, and designed around the wide range of roads, speed bumps and kerbs that fleets experience. Our 3.5T and 4.25T vehicles have a ground clearance of 160–200mm, dependent on payload, which is optimised with an independent suspension, flat underside, and robust protection of structures and connections to give adequate clearance and excellent driveability and usability.

To submit a question to r/AskArrivalAnything send us a message on Twitter or Facebook using #AskArrivalAnything. As we continue to develop solutions for cities that help drive sustainability goals, your questions, feedback and comments form a critical part of the process.
