A grey B.E.V Electric Truck with a standing tan driver in the front driver cutaway.

These rechargeable vehicles were commonly used to transport goods on the large flat area behind the driver's section, which didn't even have a seat. Surprisingly for a vehicle keeping its controls behind the standing driver, these electric trucks were highly manoeuvrable. In a smart decision, the brake is activated by the driver's foot being lifted from the brake pedal.

The model was produced from 1948-1960, renumbered to 400 in 1954.
