Diesel cars sales will be banned from 2035, so we are going electric.
A recent announcement from the government now states that all sales of Diesel cars will be prohibited from 2035. The news initiative has been introduced to reduce the UK’s carbon footprint.
‘Experts said 2040 would be too late if the UK wants to achieve its target of emitting virtually zero carbon by 2050.’ – BBC News
As climate change becomes a real worry for the future of our planet, it’s growing more important for businesses to do their bit. S2S has decided to help lead the charge in creating a greener workplace.
How are we doing this? With the purchase of a new fully- electric vehicle for smaller WEEE Collections.
Which vehicle have we purchased?
Our new Nissan e-NV200 includes:
- A 40kWh battery which allows for up to 187miles per charge, for our longer distance collections.
- A large capacity boot to fit 2 pallets of IT equipment.
- A silent engine to reduce our noise disturbance at your business.
- A rearview monitor to help us pull up closer for loading and deliveries.
What are the benefits?
Along with the service benefits of our new electric van, a study has found that these new cars emit 50% less CO2 emissions than a diesel car, including the manufacturing emissions. – Read more here
If all businesses swap out one vehicle for an electric alternative, we would significantly cut toxic CO2 emissions released into our atmosphere.
We are making a change to support our planet, what will your business do?
