Gary tests out the eActros

Wednesday 19th July 2023

Last weekend our Driver Trainer, Gary McMurray had the best day bringing the new fully electric eActros back from Dublin. The route took Gary through Dublin to the Dublin Docks and onto a ferry to Holyhead, then through thunderstorms to our Bolton site. Gary began the 191 mile journey after an overnight charge on a 20kw trickle charger. As he left the truck was on 99% charge and had a range of 581km.

After visiting a few touristy spots in Dublin, such as the Guinness factory (shame he was driving!) Gary headed to the port to get on the ferry back to Wales. He loaded up the eActros with many other trucks and set sail for Wales. After an overnight rest stop at Bolton so Gary could have a good nights sleep he started the next stage of the journey from Bolton to Wentworth Park with 56% and 171 miles range.

Gary reached his destination with 128 miles in the tank! Wow, from Dublin to Barnsley on a single charge, plus 128 miles and 41% charge left! Gary said his experience of driving the eActros was an incredible look at the future of trucks.

“It was the best driving experience of my life and I’ve been driving for 48 years! The range and recuperation on the truck was phenomenal. At times we used 10 miles of range to get up a hill on the motorway, but recuperated that 10 miles on the way down the hill!”

We’ve had another great review from a customer who recently visited our Blackburn Parts Department. 

We can only provide the high standards of service that we do, by employing the best people. Well done to the team! ⭐
This was a very exciting handover for our Group Van Sales Manager, Jonathan Ramsay and Van Sales Executive Matthew Coombe. @westcoastharley recently purchased a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 315 Progressive to be used to deliver customers’ vehicles and attend events. 

For West Coast Harley Davidson, deliveries of their prestigious bikes just have to be made in a premium vehicle and the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter was the only van that could meet their high standards. 

We love it when our vans are used to deliver interesting things, and this one has got to be one of our favourites. As an avid Harley rider, our Group Van Sales Manager was delighted to be able to attend the handover and Matthew did a superb job dragging him away from their showroom with his bank balance unscathed.

Thank you to West Coast Harley Davidson, we hope you are as happy with your van as Jonathan is with his Harley and we look forward to visiting you again soon.
