Computer company plans to transition 50-strong fleet to EV
Taylor Made Computer Solutions has started to switch their fleet of 50 vehicles to electric, starting with the delivery of six new BMW i3.
The new electric vehicles will be used as ‘pool cars’ for the company’s 115 employees, who also benefit from the use of three charge points at the comany’s Cams Hall Estate headquarters in Hampshire.
Taylor Made says it plans to transition all 50 fleet vehicles to electric vehicles “in time”, despite the company saying their current fleet are already “relatively low emissions”.
“Our customers span across the entire south of England, from Poole in the west to Brighton and London in the East,” Nigel said. “We’ll be able to use our chargers before we leave and top up with rapid charges on the road if necessary for longer journeys.”
Phil Page from Compass Leasing in Portsmouth, which helped Taylor Made make the switch, said: “We are seeing a real rise in demand for alternatively fuelled vehicles here in Hampshire. We’re only expecting that to rise as manufacturers start producing more and more electric vehicles, with greater range and battery capacity.”
