Eden Project adds 18 EVs to fleet

By / 1 year ago / UK News / 2 Comments

The Eden Project has built on its existing partnership with Renault with the addition of 18 electric vehicles to its fleet.

Following successful trials, the Cornwall-based eco attraction has taken delivery of the Twizy quadricycle, ZOE supermini and the Kangoo Z.E for use by its team throughout the site and also further afield in promotional activities.

Eden’s Renault Twizys will be used by staff across the site, while two of the three Renault ZOEs will assist with visitor services.

A total of 13 Kangoo Z.Es – comprising four Maxi Crew Cab versions and nine Panel Vans – will be used across the site by maintenance, horticulture, security, live programming and catering teams.

Rita Broe, sales and marketing director at The Eden Project, said: “Having the Renault fleet hard at work across the site, as well as hosting a major interactive Renault exhibit at Eden in peak season, will help inform and educate our hundreds of thousands of visitors about the benefits of owning electric cars in a fun, engaging way. Our visitors are already very interested in seeing the vehicles – and the Twizys in particular are causing quite a stir!”

The zero-emission vehicles also offer the benefit of being able to work inside Eden’s Biomes, which diesel or petrol vehicles can’t enter due to pollution concerns. […]
