Octopus Energy Services previously worked with a fleet of 60 Peugeot Expert diesel vans and will be making the switch over to electric variants from this year.
The company has opted for 23 of the Peugeot e-Expert models with a 75kWh battery, allowing the vehicle to operate with a range of up to 205 miles. The vans will have more than enough space for tools, electrical equipment, PPE and even Wi-Fi dongles so that customers working from home can still use the internet when installations are being made.
In a tiered deal for the company, the Peugeot e-Expert vans are being leased to Octopus Energy Services via sister company, Octopus Electric Vehicles.
Octopus Energy is proud of the switch to an all-electric fleet as it highlights the true commitment of the company towards the all-electric revolution, according to John Szymik, CEO of Octopus Energy Services.
“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 carbon emitting sector it’s high time we put the brakes on unnecessary petrol cars on the road,” he said. “With our new vehicles we’ll be able to install even more electric vehicle chargers across the country and help improve air quality in our cities.”
