Electric vans replace diesels

Test Valley Borough Council has added five brand new Renault Kangoo electric vans to its vehicle fleet.


The electric vans, which have a range of 120 miles per charge, have replaced older diesel vehicles and will be utilised by the council’s environmental services team and estates and economic development service.


Environmental portfolio holder, councillor Graham Stallard, said: “I am really pleased that we have been able to add these fully electric vehicles to our fleet. Not only are they environmentally friendly with zero emissions, but they are cost effective too. It is exciting that vehicle manufacturers are now making affordable electric vehicles and I look forward to the council adding more to its fleet in the future and further reducing its carbon footprint.


“The arrival of these new vehicles shows how the council is leading by example to keep the borough green. It is great that we are at the forefront of innovation and making use of cutting-edge technology like this.”


The council has also installed electric vehicle charging points at its depots in Andover and Romsey.
