AlphaElectric exceeds first year target by 24%
The multi-marque service launched in November 2013 with a target of 595 units in its first year, and 12 months on can count West Middlesex University Hospital and London-based last mile delivery specialist Gnewt Cargo among its customers.
Jon Burdekin, Head of Consultancy Sales at Alphabet, said: ‘There is a clear appetite among organisations for electric cars and vans, and this is only going to increase as vehicles continue to drop in price and misconceptions are dispelled. As a result, in 2015 we expect to see the orders of electric vehicles continue to increase significantly.
‘As consultants, it’s our job to assess and prove the suitability of electric vehicles to a range of different customers, both in terms of funding and practical requirements. That’s why we ensure we regularly analyse our customers’ fleets to ascertain if there's a requirement or opportunity to integrate EVs.’
