fedex

FedEx Express is to start testing the all electric Nissan e-NV200 in North America.

Previously tested in Asia, South America and Europe, FedEx will use the e-NV200 in ‘real world’ conditions in Washington.

It will subjected to the usual requirements of the company’s delivery vehicles. The results of this rigourous field test will demonstrate the viability using the all-electric vehicle in the United States.

Both FedEx and Nissan are keen to see how Electric Vehicles can be deployed within working environments. This e-NV200 testing will inform FedEx’s EarthSmart programme as part of the company’s environmental commitment.

Ford Focus Electric

Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, has announced that government will invest more than £9 million to boost the number of charging points for electric cars.

There are already more charging points than filling stations in London. But – to make driving an electric car possible for everyone, the funding will be used to create hundreds more charging points across the country. Plans include the provision of 140 new rapid chargepoints which can charge an electric car in less than half an hour. This will cement the UK’s position as one of the best for electric vehicle recharging networks in Europe.

Major car manufacturers BMW, Nissan, Renault, Toyota and Vauxhall are all backing the Go Ultra Low campaign in a ground breaking partnership with government to debunk common myths and misconceptions that put drivers off switching to electric or hybrid cars, such as cost and how far the vehicles can travel before being recharged.

A new website will help people determine which electric vehicle is right for them, as well as providing a wealth of information highlighting the advantages of these vehicles. For more details, visit: www.GoUltraLow.com or speak to the EValu8 team: http://evalu8-ti.org.uk/contact-us/

uh car club

Source East is proud to be involved with the new electric car hire scheme recently launched at the University of Hertfordshire.

A new, entirely electric, pay-per-use car club has launched at the University of Hertfordshire, providing staff, students and the local community with a convenient and environmentally friendly travel alternative that removes the costs of owning and running a car.

 

Source East (the region’s electric vehicle recharging network) is proud to partner the University’s Environment and Sustainability team and E-Car Club (the UK’s first entirely electric pay-per-use car club) to run the scheme. It offers three electric cars to hire by the hour from either the University’s College Lane or de Havilland campus via a membership programme.

Dr. Stephen Boffey, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Regional Affairs at the University of Hertfordshire said: “The University is always looking at ways to improve the travel choices for staff, students and the local community and we are proud to be the first university to launch an electronic car club. We hope that by offering access to a low carbon form of transport, we can work together to reduce the cost and environmental impact of each journey undertaken.”

Christopher J. Morris, Development Director, E-Car, said: “We are delighted to be launching this scheme in partnership with the University of Hertfordshire and Source East. A first for the UK, we’re confident the programme will not only reduce transport emissions and costs for the community, but provide a convenient, flexible and affordable transport option for University staff and students.”

Anyone over the age of 19 can register for E-Car membership and all registrations before 28 February will receive a 50% discount on the membership fee and one hour free driving credit using the following promotional code: ‘UHECAR114’.
