With their sturdy and ergonomic design, the Goupil 100% electric vans have become the benchmark in-house vehicles on most major industrial sites (automotive industry, petrochemical sites, metallurgy, aeronautics, etc.).
Sales of 100% electric utility vans are on the rise in the industrial sector. With increasingly stricter regulations in terms of CO2 emissions, many businesses are looking for more sustainable and efficient means of transportation: they are turning to electric utility vehicles to fulfil these needs for their business.
With a range of electric vehicles, Goupil offers compact trucks tailored for industries.
Our small utility vehicles have become key players in logistics centres, dockyards and the food industry alike.
Thanks to their versatility, they efficiently support your teams in their daily tasks: transporting equipment or people, handling and maintenance operations… Everything is possible with a Goupil!
The benefits of electric technology for the industrial sector
Goupil vehicles fall into the category of LCV’s (Light Commercial Vehicles), widely used to cover short distances. Their manoeuvrability offers many advantages for operating on industrial sites.
Being 100% electric, Goupil’s contribute to lowering your carbon footprint and improving air quality. By electrifying their fleet, industries can play an active role in the fight against climate change.
Reducing operating costs
The usage costs of electric vehicles are lower compared to those of combustion engine vehicles: recharging the battery is less expensive than filling the tank with petrol. Besides, an electric vehicle has fewer moving parts, therefore requiring less maintenance.
Electric vans are known for their high-torque engine and fast acceleration. They are therefore perfectly suited to the intensive activities of industrial sites: tipper truck for transporting heavy loads, van body for maintenance activities, column lift for storage operations…
Goupil vehicles’ high level of performance increase the efficiency and productivity of industrial operations.
Industrial buildings are often noisy. Opting for Goupil vans will provide your teams with a silent means of transport.
The absence of vibrations when driving will improve their work conditions and reduce wear and tear of the vehicles.
Thanks to their electric technology, our utility trucks can be used inside buildings for all types of industrial applications, such as deliveries, transport of goods, facility maintenance (heating, air-conditioning, etc.) or maintaining machines…
Climate change and environmental sustainability are at the forefront of global concerns. As we strive towards a more sustainable future, investing in a fleet of electric vehicles will enhance the image of your company: it is a unique opportunity to show your commitment towards the environment and reducing your carbon footprint.

Goupil, the perfect partner for industries
The presence of electric vans is growing in the industrial sector: vehicles with renewable energy are booming and a new era of sustainable mobility encourages many businesses to electrify their fleets.
Their ultra-compact size and manoeuvrability make it possible to reach areas of your facility that were previously not accessible, giving your operators greater autonomy on a daily basis.
With their short wheelbase and tight turning radius, Goupil vehicles can run and manoeuvre easily in logistics warehouses or harbours for the handling of goods.
Lithium technology enables partial recharging of the battery, facilitating vehicle availability for industries working three shifts.
Installing charging points on your premises will simplify your logistics operations and offer your teams the possibility to use them for their personal cars.
With a high payload – up to 1,200 kg – and a maximum towing capacity of 1,700 kg, our vans are the vehicle of choice for many businesses in France and in Europe.
Specific body options for various applications
The strength of Goupil lies in our capacity to offer versatile vehicles that can be used in a variety of industrial applications.
Fitted with a converted van body, the Goupil is the perfect work partner for your Facility Manager, responsible for maintaining various electric equipment (heating, air-conditioning…) or repairing machines on your production lines.
Our range of products includes column lifts for storage operations and aerial work platforms for work at height.
Acquiring a fleet of electric utility vehicles for moving goods within a logistics centre contributes to reducing the environmental impact of the entire transport and logistics industry.
Sales of electric cars and vans are speeding up in France and in Europe.
Besides the growing awareness about climate change, this increase is also being driven by financial incentives et the roll-out of infrastructures facilitating the use of electric vehicles, including the expansion of charging points.
Admittedly, the health crisis slowed sales for a period, but figures show that electric energy will see the biggest increase in vehicle registrations in Europe in the third quarter of 2022.
