Gloucestershire Constabulary has just taken delivery of 75 electric Nissan vehicles.
Gloucestershire Constabulary have estimated that they could be saving around £136,000 a year in fuel and maintenance.
66 are LEAFs and 9 are e-NV200s.
“The purchase of these new vehicles is a huge step forward for the Constabulary to reduce its carbon and pollution, and meets part of my commitment to ‘A Green and Pleasant County’ that was outlined in my Police and Crime Plan. It’s a journey we’ve been on for five years and is part of a long-term commitment by my office to ensure our environment is considered at every opportunity.
The new fleet will save a considerable amount of CO₂ and money, giving Gloucestershire a larger percentage of fully-electric vehicles in its fleet than any other force. I hope the constabulary will be able to build on this great work, and extend its electric fleet to 40 per cent within the next four years.”Said Gloucestershire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Martin Surl.
