SWIFT rolls out Belgium's largest BMW i3 fleet
The cars join SWIFT’s 950-strong fleet, and are supported by a charging solution supplied by utility company Electrabel. There are 21 charging points at SWIFT’s headquarters, and 19 at participating employees’ homes.
SWIFT says the i3s, all of which are range-extender models, were chosen for their ability to offer long-distance travel when needed. Employees can also access a conventionally-powered vehicle for 30 days per year.
Caroline Ceustermans, SWIFT’s Fleet Manager, said: "Our mobility plan is constantly evolving: this new initiative allows employees with a relevant driving profile to have a direct positive impact on our overall emission level. It will also ensure that more electric vehicles will be chosen in the future.”
Marc Vandenbergh, Director of Sales & Marketing at Alphabet, added: "It proves that AlphaElectric really works as a total concept to integrate alternative engines into existing company fleets, while still being user-friendly. For more comfort drivers can rely on Alphabet for a traditional car during e.g. their holiday periods. Alphabet is also there to assist in operational services or assistance related to their lease vehicle," says
