Fleet Alliance adds Nissan LEAFs to fleet under EV awareness programme

The company has already seen huge success in reducing carbon emissions over the last six years, during which time it has helped clients cut an estimated 7.2 billion grams of CO2 from their fleets.

The new initiatives are aimed at carrying on the green impetus and taking the campaign still further.

As part of an EV awareness programme, two new examples of the Nissan LEAF have now been added to the Fleet Alliance fleet. One is for use by staff to familiarise themselves with the characteristics of an EV, while the other is for use by clients for testing and review purposes.

At the same time, Fleet Alliance is providing two free-to-use electric car charging points in the visitors’ car park at its new offices, Skypark, just outside Glasgow city centre. The Skypark landlords have paid for the installation while Fleet Alliance is paying the ongoing electricity charges.

The company is also working with the Energy Saving Trust to offer its clients energy-saving advice on best practice for hybrid, electric and grey fleet vehicles, reviewing fleet costs and eco-driver training.

And Fleet Alliance has just added the Lexus CT Hybrid, with carbon emissions of just 82g/km, to its own company car policy to encourage its employees to consider greener alternative vehicles.
