Salisbury City Council is delighted to announce that they have now added the very first electric/hybrid van to their fleet of vehicles and it can be spotted on our city’s roads from today (21st July 2021).
The van, which is a Ford Transit Custom Electric Hybrid 340L1 1.0Phev, will be used to travel with equipment to Salisbury’s play parks on a daily basis where our Grounds Team carry out important safety checks and inspections.
The City Council are looking to purchase another electric/hybrid van later this year as part of their goal to replace or convert all City Council owned or operated vehicles to electric-powered vehicles as soon as is practically possible.
Salisbury City Council declared a climate emergency in June 2019 and are working to make the city as carbon neutral as possible by 2030.
