FLEETDRIVE fly the flag for electric vans at Birmingham’s Freight in the City Summit to demonstrate how they enable cleaner, safer and quieter last-mile deliveries in densely-populated urban areas.
They were emphasising how the new generation of electric vans, such as the Nissan eNV200, provide zero-emission, safer, alternative vehicle options.
Fleetdrive Electric sales director Adam Kemp said that with Congestion Charge savings alone of up to £4,000 a year, plus low running costs and tax benefits, electric vans make sense for the business and the environment by generating long-term fleet savings as well as helping us all to breathe easier.
Adam and rental & remarketing manager Ellie Vujasevic found the event to be a useful opportunity to engage with transport buyers, local authority policy makers, logistics operators, suppliers and local own-fleet businesses in the Birmingham area.
Fleetdrive Electric’s unique EV flexi-lease service was of particular interest, as it provides clients with an opportunity to trial electric vehicles, within a practical application, before committing to a long-term rental agreement. A number of London-based organisations and local authorities have already conducted successful trials and are now adopting EV technology within their wider fleet.
The London Borough of Hillingdon and Ricardo Energy & Environment are currently offering free EV trials, provided by the Mayor’s Air Quality Fund, to businesses in the Borough of Hillingdon and surrounding area. For more information click here.
