Electric Van Experience (EVE)
The Electric Van Experience (EVE) is a unique opportunity for Derby-based businesses to test drive a range of electric vans.
With the Government ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles brought forward to 2030, we want to support businesses to make the switch to electric vehicles. Not only are they more environmentally-friendly, but they’re cheaper to run and maintain too.
We’re offering businesses, as well as voluntary and public sector organisations in the city, the chance to try an electric van that suits their needs, including provision of a charge point at the business premises. This will give businesses and organisations the chance to experience first hand the financial and environmental benefits of greener vehicles, and provide operational confidence to make a permanent switch. We particularly want to hear from those businesses who regularly use the A38 or A52.
As the number of electric vehicles increases, the amount of harmful emissions on our roads decreases – resulting in cleaner air and helping to make our city carbon neutral.
This opportunity has been made possible thanks to support and funding from Highways England, who have given Nottingham City Council £2.69m to deliver the service, and they have invited ourselves to join them in the trial.
