I wonder if it shares any tech, or even the whole platform, with the LEVC TX electric taxi?  If it does, that would certainly save a lot of development and research cash.  

Apparently the Morris is a completely new design, but LEVC do also have a van version of their electric taxi planned.

Or even  car Artists ?

Yes I think so.  Having a fancy looking ZE van would be a big selling point for a lot of businesses, and I don't just mean the ones in London.

 

I know there is theoretically the Nissan EV100 or whatever it's called, at likely a lot less, but they've only teensy batteries since they are an early leaf in a van body

I mean, it looks alright, but at that price will anybody actually buy one?

If you see the hyper-inflated Citroen HA vans that artisan hipsters splash out on, yes.  Because green credentials.  Hey Presto!  Planet saved.

Depends what they're after; it's about twice the price of a eKangoo but the battery is about twice as big so the usable range should be about double, so it's swings and roundabouts. The cost of financing one will be the critical issue, if they can knock them out at a reasonable monthly rate then they should go like hotcakes.
