Mediafleet Experiencing the Vehicle Revolution
With governments across the globe setting targets for reduced emissions by 2025, organisations are turning to ‘alternative fuel vehicles’ as replacements for fossil fuelled vehicles.
The electric vehicle transition is happening, as witnessed first-hand by Mediafleet. Alternatively fuelled vehicles (AFVs), such as battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and hybrids, are currently the focus of corporate ambitions in reducing carbon emissions and improving air quality.
AFVs are nothing new, in 1900, there were more electric vehicles on the roads than those with internal combustion engines (ICEs) – but up until recently have seen their uptake hampered by the limitations posed by poor battery performance, sporadic supporting infrastructure and prohibitive purchase costs.
Today, technological developments in AFV technology and production, and its supporting infrastructure, has encouraged the adoption of electric vehicles by leading fleet operators.
Leading the charge!
In 2020, Mediafleet was pleased to be able to support many organisations with the graphics conversion for their increasing AFV fleets. The point here is that the vehicles were not prototypes or one offs; these vehicles were playing crucial roles in the roll-out of the core services offered by these organisations.
Let’s take a look at some of the vehicles that have received the Mediafleet treatment.
A Case in Point
Mediafleet is branding ‘electric’ fleet vehicles for Western Power Distribution – the electricity distribution network operator for the Midlands, South West and Wales. Western Power Distribution deliver electricity to over 7.9 million customers over a 55,500 square kilometres service area and employ over 6,500 staff.
The vehicles branded were Nissan E-NV200, 75 of them in fact, with a dedicated design to denote these are the first electric arrivals on fleet.
Jane Nicholson, fleet technical advisor for Western Power Distribution said, “Developing a ‘greener’ fleet is a key agenda item for Western Power Distribution. We will certainly be acquiring more EV’s in the future and I look forward to seeing them branded by Mediafleet with the dedicated branding”.
