Taking steps to reduce fleet emissions with hybrid technology
TCi is pleased to announce the recent replacement of diesel and petrol company vehicles with Mercedes A class plug-in hybrid alternatives.
The move is part of a commitment that TCi has made to reduce fleet emissions which prioritises electric vehicles ahead of petrol and diesel models whenever a new van or car is considered. It is hoped that as technologies become more prevalent throughout the industry, a good deal of traditionally powered vehicles can be replaced with more sustainable alternatives.
Talking about his new, low-emission transport, Managing Director, Alex Perkis said;
“It’s great to be able to achieve my short daily commute entirely on electrical power, and using a green energy supplier means that I’m able to achieve my journey using 100% renewable energy.
Unfortunately, we’re not quite at the point yet where a full electric vehicle will be suitable for the majority of our business applications, but it’s a step in the right direction.
On a recent routine trip to our sites at Hinkley Point C in Bridgwater, I was able to achieve an average efficiency of 83mpg, using less than half the fuel I’d have previously needed driving the pick-up truck that I had before.”
Combined with other initiatives such as carbon-zero recyclable furniture products, solar panel installation, conservation and carbon footprint offsetting, the adoption of hybrid vehicles is part of an ongoing sustainability journey at TCi.
