In early September 2019, Inzile was approved by the HBV (Home Construction Products Association) dynamic procurement system 18-116 Service Vehicles. The agreement covers 350 member companies and the approval is for service and transport vehicles up to 3.5 tons.
HBV provides procurement services on behalf of Public Housing Sweden, via the coordinated procurement of products for building construction, renovation and property management. HBV has over 180 framework agreements today, and helps the 350 member companies to manage and develop housing for their tenants, on a daily basis.
“We are proud and delighted to be approved and we view this as confirmation that there is both a need and a demand for more and more electric vehicles and fossil fuel free alternatives today,” says Ragnar Åhgren, CEO of Inzile.
“We maintain an ongoing dialogue with our member companies, suppliers and stakeholders to understand their needs today and to be able to offer housing companies what they need tomorrow. At HBV, we are seeing a big increase in interest and a need for electric commercial vehicles in the next few years,” says Ville Gruner, Agreements Manager at HBV.
The Inzile PRO4 is an electric-powered light goods vehicle that has been developed with the aim of enabling smart and fossil fuel free cities. Electric commercial vehicles are a niche market within the auto industry that is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years. Potential customer groups include housing companies, property companies, transport companies and e-tailers looking to eliminate emissions in towns, municipalities and parks.
