Electric van deployed on Solihull Council fleet
The team is responsible for community projects across the region, ranging from park improvements to sporting initiatives for teenagers. It required a large load area and two rows of seats, both of which the e-NV200 Combi could offer.
One of the first electric vehicles on the council’s varied 69-strong fleet, but opportunities to switch from petrol or diesel will be considered for every new vehicle as they come around to replacement.
Councillor Tony Dicicco, cabinet member for environment, housing and regeneration said: “In addition to our clean-air responsibilities, it’s important that we as a council also do what we can to reduce the number of large vehicles on our roads. The e-NV200 is just the right size for us, giving the team all the room they need to transport people and tools while saving on fuel bills.”
