Royal Mail bolsters fleet with Peugeot electric vans

Peugeot is providing Royal Mail with an additional 2,000 new electric vans to expand its growing fleet of EVs.

The order of new Peugeot e-Expert and Peugeot e-Partner vans will join circa 28,000 Peugeot vehicles already in use by the delivery service.

Peugeot has been providing Royal Mail with vehicles since 2009. With the addition of 1,000 new Peugeot e-Partner and 1,000 Peugeot e-Expert vans, Royal Mail continues to work towards its aim of having 5,500 electric vehicles on its fleet by Spring 2023.

70 of Royal Mail’s delivery offices have made the transition to electrification so far, with many of the vehicles used to deliver parcels and packages to customers in cities which operate with low emission zones, such as London, Bristol, Glasgow, Cambridge, and Oxford.

Royal Mail’s commitment to reduce emissions throughout its operations comes hand in hand with Peugeot’s electrification strategy, which aims to provide customers with an electrified variant of each model in its range by 2024.
