ABB UK commits to an all-electric fleet future by 2025

Craig Pendergast of ABB UK

Power and automation technology group ABB is almost as old as electrification itself, with its origins dating back more than 130 years. It was founded to take advantage of a then-new technology called electricity, and has remained at the forefront of the sector ever since.

Recently this involvement includes working in the electric vehicle (EV) charging industry and some of its newest technologies include a 7.4kW Terra home electric vehicle charge point, and a 350kW high power charger.

ABB, a member of Fleet News sister brand Smart Transport, is also, fittingly, one of the companies in the UK leading the switch to all-electric fleets, with a commitment to completing the transition by 2025 as part of its net zero ambition.

“In the UK, our fleet covered 6.8 million business miles in 2019,” says Craig Prendergast (left), country HR manager at ABB UK, which has 500 company cars.
