On time and emission free!1st May 2015 / Posted by CRP Team
At the March CRP Board meeting, UPS demonstrated their latest electric delivery vehicle as part of the FREVUE project. The delivery vehicle has involved the conversion of older, existing diesel vehicles into zero tailpipe emission electric vehicles will save over 1.9tonnes of CO2 per year, 180kg of NOx and 6.5kg of particulate matter. This is a prime example of what the electric freight vehicles that CRP is championing can do to improve air quality in central London.
With wider opportunities for electric freight vehicles across London, this is a great way for companies to reduce their emissions, be prepared for the Mayor’s Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) and demonstrate to their customers their commitment to minimising their impact on the environment.
