Autoparts UK has invested in a fleet of Renault Twizy electric vehicles for zero emission delivery of its car parts.
The 12-branch motor factor has invested in the zero emissions vehicles as part of a drive to reduce its carbon footprint. The two-seater electric vehicles will operate mainly from its branches in Glasgow and Dundee, delivering car parts to local independent garages.
Autoparts UK group factor manager Craig McCracken believes that using electric vehicles is a good move when rapidly delivering parts and accessories orders to customers in and around Glasgow & Dundee.
He said: “The Renault Twizzy has a 62-mile range on a full battery and it only needs £1 worth of electricity to complete a full charge. We have a large number of customers in central Glasgow and Dundee so using a vehicle like this to complete our rapid deliveries makes perfect sense.
“By using electric power, we can deliver the high-quality service that our customers expect – and significantly reduce our carbon footprint at the same time.”
