 Garia Utility Vehicles

E-mobility your way.

The 100% electric Garia Utility vehicle is built like a utility truck from the ground up, with no compromises on features.  It combines reliability, ergonomics and zero emission with comfort, functionality and good design.  Designed, developed and produced in Denmark and constructed for public sector, facility management, last mile and leisure use.  Made of high-quality European components never seen in this segment.  The electric Garia utility vehicle is one of a kind!

 

Go green – go efficient

The Electric Garia Utility vehicle has various economic advantages. The total cost per driven km is only 1/3 compared to a similar diesel driven van, and a full charge of the utility vehicle roughly costs the same as 2 litres of diesel.  This is due to electricity being cheaper per km or mile compared to fossil fuels, and because an electric driven vehicle has way fewer moving parts compared to vehicles with combustion engines.

Electric motors require very little maintenance – and they only use power when in operation, as there is no idle consumption. Another great benefit is that electric motors are ideal for stop and go operations which normally can harm a diesel engine.  In other words, you can drive for hours without having to worry about your economy or polluting the local environment.

 

Lots of features and benefits.

The Garia utility vehicle will work with you to get you through your workday as smoothly and efficiently as possible, combining durability and comfort.  Low vibration and superior suspension ensure a smooth ride.  Navigating busy city streets and small roads is no issue - a Garia is easy to handle and agile in areas with narrow paths and curving roads.  The best-in-class Garia electric utility vehicles outperform any diesel vehicle in terms of reliability, cost of operation, driving experience, torque and emissions.  Unlike a Garia electric-only vehicle, combustion engines are not suited or efficient for frequent engine power ups and shutdowns.  Garia have developed and perfected vehicles to last and endure in different demanding surroundings and environments, and here at Wilsons of Rathkenny we are delighted to add their range to our portfolio of utility vehicles.  

 

Choose the best model for your operation.

Garia electric utility vehicles can all be configured and customised with different features and specifications - tailored to suit your exact requirements.  They are ideal for the public sector, leisure and outdoors, facility management and last mile.   A number of battery options are available as well as different chassis lengths.  Other options are available such as an electric tilting cargo bed, cargo bed with a mesh cage, closed van box, reversing camera and power steering.  We can help you configure your Garia vehicle to suit your requirements - contact Geoff Wylie today who will guide and advise you through the process.  

 

Pure performance.
All Garia electric utility vehicles are made with performance, durability, and the smooth ride in mind. With ergonomic features throughout the spacious cabin, everything is easily within reach.  This means that, across the 3 different models, you will find technical specifications that are universal based on our tests, user input and what is optimal to perform no matter the environment or task ahead.  You will find a variety of models with driving speeds ranging in between 25–55 km/h enabling a great fit for e.g. both a closed park-setting or for transport on public road. The universal 200 mm ground clearance ensures that you stay clear of bumps, and the solid galvanized steel frame provides maximum longevity and ensure both a smooth ride and high load capacity.
