TWO BRIGHT SPARKS FOR FIFE COUNCIL
Fife Council has made two further electrifying additions to its vehicle fleet having taken delivery recently of an all electric Nissan e-NV 200 van and a Nissan Leaf car, supplied by Alex F Noble and Son, the Midlothian based Nissan car dealership. The two new vehicles join six Leafs also supplied by the dealership since 2011.
Transport Scotland is part funding the purchase of the new electric vehicles. The ‘Switched on Fleets’ initiative is driving forward public sector fleets’ green credentials by increasing the number of electric vehicles on the road. The Scottish Government’s ambitious climate change targets include phasing out all petrol and diesel fuelled vehicles by 2050.
Cllr Pat Callaghan, Fife Council’s Executive Spokesperson for Environment and Transportation said: “We’re committed to freeing Fife from the damaging effects of petrol and diesel fuelled vehicles. More electric vehicles on our roads, helps to increase awareness among drivers of the viable alternatives to petrol and diesel cars.”
Tom Henderson, Service Manager (Fleet Operations) commented: “The new Nissan e-NV200 is ideal for the ‘Meals on Wheels’ service. Not only does it run efficiently despite short trips and frequent stops, but it’s much quieter travelling around residential areas”.
Jim Rowan, EV specialist at Alex F Noble & Son, said: “We’re very encouraged to see Fife Council continuing to invest in Nissan with the addition of another Leaf car and an electric van, which is proving ideal for the ‘Meals on Wheels’ service.
“Alex F Noble & Son has an excellent working partnership with Fife Council and we look forward to continue to be of service in the ongoing development and maintenance of their zero emission vehicle fleet.”
