Lex Autolease has delivered five Nissan Leafs to global engineering and technology giant Siemens. This initiative is part of Siemens’ overall corporate approach to sustainability, which includes the introduction of low carbon transport.
The first electric vehicles (EVs) on its UK fleet will be used in Lincoln by employees making trips between the company’s sites and the University of Lincoln Engineering Hub.
Siemens has also installed its own advanced high power recharging points at its main gas turbine manufacturing facility in Lincoln.
Mark Bonnor-Moris, head of Electromobility UK and Ireland, said: “For Siemens, having a wide range of vehicle types is important. We look forward to working with vehicle manufacturers and to increasing the number and range of electric vehicles in our fleet.”
John Webb, principle consultant at Lex Autolease, said: “We were pleased to be able to use our close relationship with Nissan to bring Siemens to the front of the waiting list.”
Siemens is now exploring future options with Lincoln City Council to roll out EV charge points across Lincoln. These latest projects are part of a much wider portfolio and engagement by Siemens in electric vehicle schemes and pilot projects globally.
