Electric truck joins Newcastle University fleet
Built in France, the Flex L3 is sold in the UK through ePower Trucks. It has a payload of up to 400kg, a 2.3m3 carrying capacity and its lead gel batteries offer a range of up to 35 miles between ten-hour full charges.
Fully road legal and designed to cut exhaust emissions in urban delivery routes, French Postal Service La Poste has over 1,000 on its fleet.
Nicola Watkins, food and beverage manager, said: ‘The catering team is committed to ethical retail, so it is fitting that the delivery vehicle we use is as sustainable as the food and Fairtrade drinks we serve. We are delighted with the catering service's first all-electric vehicle.’
