TAG Farnborough Airport adds three Renault ZOEs to fleet

The vehicles are being used to shuttle staff between buildings, including the main control tower.

Miles Thomas, environment manager at TAG Farnborough Airport, said: “We monitor our carbon footprint very closely across all our services and departments, and being able to reduce the environmental impact of the staff vehicle movements across the airport was a driving factor for us.

“We looked at all the electric vehicles on the market but only the ZOE ticked all our boxes. The car offers the low running costs and zero emissions and it’s also small, functional, simple and enjoyable to drive and has an impressive range.”

He added: “The reaction of our staff to the three ZOEs has been fantastic and very positive. People are enjoying driving them and we’ll definitely be looking to add more EVs to our fleet as a result.”

Sales in the UK of Renault’s electric models were up 90% in 2014 to 1,286 vehicles whilst the first three months of 2015 saw sales rise 148% to 401 vehicles.
