About Electric Wheels

Our Norfolk dealership launched in 2019 specialising in selling and hiring electric utility vehicles predominantly to the events sector. In a short space of time, we quickly recognised the potential for utility vehicles across many ranging sectors including agriculture, horticulture, emergency services and even film-making. Our Electric Utility Vehicles have been delivered as far as the Scottish Highlands, and even further afield to the Falkland Islands.

We continue to be excited by the rapid growth and innovation in the world of electric transport. We aim to help our clients in their quests to meet their 'Sustainability Charters'. Vehicles leaving us for hire or sale are fully charged using our onsite photo-voltaic facilities. However, the next leg of our zero emissions journey will be to deliver and collect using electric vehicles only with a view to be an emissions free company.

We aim to grow our hire and sale fleet by staying at the forefront of our industry. We are always on the lookout for our next Electric Wheels addition. We therefore continue to source and test cutting edge machines, whether on two, three or four wheels. Our endeavours to serve our customers doesn’t stop there. Our on-site team of ex-RAF engineers are constantly looking at ways to enhance performance and adapt our vehicles to ensure we offer the best of the best to our customers and tailored to their exacting requirements.

If you are interested in hiring or purchasing an Electric Wheels utility vehicle, or even if you have your own unique electric utility vehicle you’d like to introduce us to, please get in touch.

Our History

Working hard in ranging outdoor events such as the Greenbelt Festival, Shambala, The Showman's Show, The Royal Norfolk Show, Lowestoft Festival of Light.

Electric Wheels is now the official UBCO dealership in the region.

In July 2019 Chris added the HiSun 4x4 Work Buggy to the Electric Wheels fleet, now available for hire and purchase. Electric Wheels, at this time was also (and continues) to hire our electric golf buggies. In fact, in August 2019 a 4-person Golf Buggy transported the Archbishop of Canterbury and others around the Greenbelt Festival. Electric golf buggies are now available as 6-seaters. We’ve introduced the 3x2 Urban Electric Scooter and the NEW 14 -eater E-Bus January 2021.

Electric Wheels based in Watton, Norfolk was established in 2016, when one founder Chris Hurdle was on a family visit to New Zealand.  Chris stumbled across an electric bike shop in Auckland specialising in UBCO e-bikes and was he instantly hooked. 

He returned some months later, taking the UBCO for another test-drive. After considerable research into the e-bike’s potential in the UK events market, Chris swiftly purchased and arranged shipment. The UBCO was put straight to work at Hampton Court Flower Show, where it quickly became an indispensable aid to the site crew.

Early in 2019 we began importing these amazing two-wheel drive machines and Electric Wheels Hire was created. Since then, the UBCO has become a core product within the Electric Wheels family.
