Customs goes green with Peugeot

HM Customs & Excise is going 'green' following its latest deal with Peugeot which sees the addition of three 106 electric cars and three electric Partner vans to its fleet as part of the Government's initiative to promote 'green' transport.

The vehicles will be supplied on an outright purchase basis by Peugeot dealership Warwick Wright, Chiswick, and the batteries will be provided on a five-year lease, with the dealership carrying out all maintenance and repair.

The electric vehicles will be delivered to Heathrow Airport and will also operate at Gatwick, Stanstead and Manchester airports as well as the organisation's Liverpool headquarters. The 106 electric cars will be used by personnel to travel around the airports and the electric Partners will be utilised for parcels and mail courier services around the terminals. Peugeot has supplied vehicles to HM Customs & Excise for many years and the electric vehicles replace petrol and diesel-engined vehicles resulting in reductions in fleet operating costs as well as pollution.
