A fully electric vehicle joined the Delivered fleet working on the local Slough delivery circuit as part of a two week trial. The vehicle, which has zero emissions, can be charged overnight in our warehouse to give a range of 70 miles before needing a recharge.

Delivered’s Operations Director Martin Cavendish says “As a company we are always researching the latest, greenest options to reduce the impact of our fleet on the environment, and we’ve been watching the development of electric vehicles closely for some time. The van is in many ways ideal – we’ve actually been getting nearly 90 miles between charges – although this model may be a little small for our needs as the drivers are having to return to the depot more often than in our regular vehicles. But it’s a very promising development and we are sure that this is the way to go in the future.”
