Octopus Energy has added 23 new Peugeot e-Expert electric vans to its engineering fleet.
The vans are to be used by engineers installing EV charging stations, and have been supplied by in-house leasing company Octopus Electric Vehicles, replacing a previous fleet of diesel Peugeot vans.
Octopus Energy Services CEO John Szymik said: “As a green energy provider, we are focused on driving the renewable energy revolution globally. We don’t just mean in the energy industry either, with transport being the UK’s largest carbon emitting sector it’s high time we put the brakes on unnecessary petrol cars on the road.
“Our 23 new Peugeot e-Expert vans ensure we are firmly in the driving seat as we begin decarbonising our whole engineering fleet.
“With our new vehicles we’ll be able to install even more electric vehicle chargers across the country and help improve air quality in our cities.”
Octopus Electric Vehicles CEO Fiona Howarth said: “Not only have we added 23 new electric vans to our engineering fleet, we’ve also leased them entirely through our Octopus Electric Vehicles fleet solution.
“By making it easier and cheaper for all businesses to switch to electric vehicles and install the necessary infrastructure needed at their place of work, we can clean up the UK’s transport system and pave the way for cleaner, greener cars.”
