UK-based compliance and energy services provider, Sureserve Group, has added 30 all-electric Citroën ë-Dispatch vans to its light commercial vehicles (LCV) fleet. The new zero-emissions additions took to the roads in late June as part of Sureserve Group’s commitment to deliver environmentally sustainable services across their various operations.
Duties undertaken by Sureserve’s 100 percent electric vehicles include serving customers in the social housing, public buildings and education markets across the UK. The Group opted for the medium body length vans with the larger 75kWh battery that offers up to 205 miles (330km) of range, to meet their varied requirements.
Sureserve Group’s decision to add Citroën ë-Dispatch to its fleet follows a host of other institutions taking the same step, including Varitech Systems and Falkirk Council. These organisations have different needs and requirements, but are united by their drive to reduce the environmental impact of their day-to-day services and to reduce operating costs.
Dean Williams, group fleet manager at Sureserve Group, said: “We have always sought to manage our fleet of commercial and company vehicles to the most efficient standards available.
“The addition of 30 new Citroën ë-Dispatch vans will start the next stage in our journey towards a greener and more economical fleet, with further additions planned in the future.
“As well as the environmental value in using zero-emissions vehicles, we are encouraged by the potential cost savings, and with fewer moving parts, less requirements for servicing, maintenance and repairs.”
