Merseytravel deploys first electric maintenance vehicles

They join a 40-strong vehicle fleet, used to transport staff and tools between bus stations, three ferry terminals, seven tunnel ventilation stations and the Queensway and Kingsway road tunnels.

Merseytavel said the e-NV200 helped reduce its fuel costs, as well as contributing to improved air quality. The company already has a LEAF as a pool car, and its government-funded ‘Recharge’ initiative has so far installed 30 charging points across the city.

Councillor Liam Robinson, Chair of Merseytravel, said: “Our vision is for electric and other low emission vehicles to play a role in developing a vibrant low carbon economy across the region. The introduction of more electric vehicles to our own fleet is another major step forward.”
