Delivery and logistics company DPD has ordered 300 all-electric Nissan e-NV200 vans for their GB depots.
The order will more than triple DPD’s current fleet of electric vehicles, taking it to 450 by May.
The move is part of the company’s goal of becoming the most responsible and sustainable city centre delivery company and the leader in electric vehicles in the UK.
It is aiming for 10 per cent of vehicles at all of its 68 UK depots to be electric by the end of the year.
The new vehicles will be dispatched to DPD depots across Britain in the coming weeks, where they will be used for local, multi-drop deliveries, travelling up to 100 miles a day.
