Aberdeen City Council’s fleet gains over 200 Renault vans
Aberdeen City Council has added over 200 Renault vans and conversions to its fleet, including three pure-electric Renault Kangoo Z.E Panel Vans.
The order with Renault also includes 55 Renault Master Panel Vans, 83 Renault Master conversions, 43 Renault Trafic Panel Vans, 29 Renault Kangoo Panel Vans, and one Renault Trafic Passenger Van.
The vans will be used by several different divisions, including roads, grounds, building and IT, to conduct vital works in an eight-mile radius of Aberdeen’s centre.
The trio of pure electric Renault Kangoo Z.E. will be used by ACC staff to carry out repairs and servicing to parking meters in the heart of the city, their ease of use in urban traffic and minimal environmental impact making them ideal for the role.
The Euro 6d conformity of all Renault Pro+ vehicles ensured the council could reduce the carbon footprint of its fleet, while having no effect on the usefulness of its vehicles. In time, Aberdeen City Council aims to make the transition to an all-electric fleet, with it set to determine the suitability of pure electric power for its large vans with the additional order of two zero-emissions-in-use Renault Master Z.E.
