SHB has announced a partnership with Garia to offer a fully-electric vehicle solution to its customers.

The Garia Utility model offers a solution to fleet operators looking for an electric option.

With a range of hire or purchase plans available and a road legal model with an array of body options to the rear, SHB is aiming to work with its customers to help bring a cost and carbon output improvement.

SHB’s buggy and ATV product manager Tony Parker said: “The commercial market has very few electric options available, many of which struggle with the daily operational environments that they are required to operate in.

"The Garia Utility, which is 100% electric and road legal ,can be used for a range of tasks, mainly due to its powerful motor allowing for speeds of up to 30mph and a range of up to 60km.”

SHB will be stocking various Garia models, all of which are now available on long term and short term hire plans as well as for purchase.

The Garia models will add to SHB’s wider fleet numbers that currently sits in excess of 16,500 vehicles.

“Entering into a long term partnership with Garia is another sign of the progress we are making here at SHB,” said Parker.

“Our buggy fleet is continuing to go from strength to strength and to now be able to offer such a high quality service will only be positive moving forward.”

“The Garia model is a state of the art, fresh and innovative vehicle that can be used across a number of platforms.”
