Jucy co-founder and chief operating officer, Dan Alpe, joins Mike Hosking to talk about Jucy's release of electric vans.

"EV's are the future, and perhaps the path will come from the commercial sector after Jucy rentals released their first fully electric camper van fleet."

Alpe says they had some issues when the vans when they first tested around recharging and battery range.

However, Alpe expects those issues to be sorted when the vans are released later in the year.

"We'll get about 180 kilometres out of these new batteries. We believe our customers are travelling 160-odd kilometres a day."
