PEUGEOT will supply green energy provider Octopus Energy with 23 of the brand’s all-electric e-Expert vans. The zero-emission vans will operate across its London-based fleet. They will be used to help Octopus Energy Services, the company’s engineering arm, to install electric vehicle (EV) charging points across the capital.
Octopus will be making the switch to electric variants from June this year as it continues to build on the sustainable credentials of its services. They have opted for the PEUGEOT e-Expert Standard Professional trim models.
These models feature a 75kWh battery that offers a range of up to 205 miles (330km). This is ideal for the distances the fleet services will be operating across the Capital.
Julie David, PEUGEOT UK Managing Director, said: “We’re delighted that Octopus Energy has chosen PEUGEOT’s full-electric e-Expert van as the latest vehicle to join its fleet. Octopus are doing a great job supporting Britain’s transition over to electrification with the work installing charge points across the capital.”
John Szymik, Octopus Energy Services CEO, 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 emitting sector it’s high time we put the brakes on unnecessary internal combustion cars on the road.
“With our new vehicles, we’ll be able to install the next generation of clean energy products including heat pumps, electric vehicle chargers and smart meters. Helping to improve air quality in cities across the UK and reducing the country’s emission as a whole.”
