Pendragon Vehicle Management (PVM) has completed delivery of eight electric Renault Kangoo vans to Lodge Tyres, with expected savings of £20,000.
Lodge Tyres chose PVM as their supplier, and were considered a front-runner in the provision of electric vehicles throughout the review process.
Lodge Tyres’ group fleet manager Andy Wills: “Lodge Tyres are environmentally friendly and are committed to going fully electric in the future.
"The acquisition of electric vans is an important step in this direction, and for this we are grateful to PVM and Renault UK for their recommendation and delivery of the Renault Kangoo vans.”
Using their Fleet Calculator tool, which takes into account a business's existing fleet, mileage and trips taken to see if they have the best vehicles for their requirements, PVM – with assistance from Renault UK - revealed that the Kangoo was the best van for Lodge Tyres.
PVM’s head of sales Jon Hilton said: "PVM are firmly committed to reducing our CO2 levels and are excited about the potential of electric vehicles.
"Our team members are encouraged to make the transition to electric vehicles, whilst we also want to help other firms become more environmentally friendly. The use of electric vans not only vastly reduces a firm's CO2 output, it also cuts costs.
“By delivering electric vans to firms such as Lodge Tyres, we can help them comply with the BVRLA's Road to Zero strategy and avoid the government ULEZ fines that will become active in London in April of this year. We’re very much open for business on electric vehicles.”
