Royal Mail has today signed an agreement with Peugeot to buy 100 zero emission Partner L2 Electric vans to be used by postmen and women.
The new electric vans will go into service in December 2017 at delivery offices around the UK.
“Our research has shown that electric vans are a good operational fit with our business and we are delighted to be ordering such a large volume to use in our daily operations. This is good news for our customers and the towns and cities which we serve. It also means we are on the front foot for future changes in emissions legislation.”
“Emissions are an important issue for us at Royal Mail and we are continuously looking at new and innovative ways to reduce our carbon footprint and our impact on air quality. Improving the efficiency of our fleet by introducing electric vans is just one example of this.”
Said Paul Gatti, Royal Mail Fleet Director.
