Eighty-one Peugeot e-208s ordered for police and fire services
Peugeot is providing 1,500 new cars and vans to 38 different police and fire authorities across the UK, including 81 electric e-208s. The vehicles ordered also include the all-new 208, 308, 508, the 3008 SUV and 5008 SUV and Partner, Expert and Boxer vans.
So far this year, Peugeot has delivered 611 vehicles to the 38 forces.
A growing number of Police and Fire services are considering electric and hybrid vehicles, with 13% of the vehicles ordered from PEUGEOT this year being full electric. These vehicles have been put to operational use, supporting frontline activity across the UK.
Gary Mallett, Fleet Manager - West Midlands Police, said: “Peugeot have provided eight loan vehicles to us throughout the period the UK has been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. These vehicles are used as support and backup vehicles for West Midlands Police. This in turn has ensured West Midlands Police can support the communities we serve.”
All of the vehicles supplied were used either for operational or support purposes, with the Police and Fire authorities requiring reliable and efficient models.
David Peel, Managing Director of Peugeot UK, said: “It’s a great testament of build quality, reliability and performance that so many of our vehicles continue to be chosen for operational purposes by the UK’s Police and Fire departments. There are few greater tests than the daily use of our Police and Fire departments, and we look forward to continuing to work with our public services in the future.”
