Falkirk Council has added seven new electric Citroen e-Dispatch vans to its fleet.
The vans have been specced with the XS body length and entry-level 50kWh battery, said to be enough to meet the council’s operational needs.
The council, which has deployed the vans to support building maintenance work, is said to have been attracted to the e-Dispatch’s range and load capacity, while additions such as a pipe carrier roof rack and plywood lining are said to allow further functionality for everyday use.
The vans were supplied by Arnold Clark in Armadale, and funded with help from Transport Scotland’s Switched On Towns and Cities Challenge Fund and Switched On Fleet Fund schemes.
Falkirk Council fleet co-ordinator Laura Campbell said: “The introduction of the new Citroen e-Dispatch to our fleet will give us the confidence that we can undertake our services in an environmental and cost-effective way, without any compromise to practical necessities like load space and vehicle range.”
