Chevin benefits from 50 percent green fleet investment
Chevin Fleet Solutions has joined the green fleet revolution and has proudly announced that over half of its company vehicles are boasting such credentials. A Tesla Model S, Mercedes-Benz PHEV, Hyundai PHEV and Volkswagen Golf EV and PHEV models now take pride of place within its fleet.
Additional green investment has made been through the installation of solar panels on the roof of Chevin’s UK head office to generate ‘green’ fuel to power the vehicles. Plans are in place for additional charge points as other diesel and petrol-fuelled vehicles across the entire global fleet are phased out.
Ashley Sowerby, managing director, Chevin, says, “We found that since switching part of our fleet to electric and hybrid vehicles, our running costs are now much lower as we do our bit for the planet through reduced emissions.
“Solar panels provide ‘green’ fuel for the vehicles and planning journeys to include charge points hasn’t really been an issue as they tend to cover daily drive requirements comfortably on a single charge.”
