Gerry gets to test drive our first electric vehicle on trial in London
Earlier this month the Ultra Low Emission Zone came into force in London which means that all vehicles travelling within the existing Congestion Zone must comply with the emissions standards or pay fines. It seemed a good a time as any to try out an electric van!
Gerry and his trainee Chris will be trialling the van to see how it performs before committing to adding more to the London fleet.
While we're mindful of emissions, it's vital to be able to get to sites promptly. We're hopeful that the technology and infrastructure has developed to such an extent that charging points are plentiful and the re-charging process is relatively painless.
