Construction firm Apollo has added fully electric cars to its fleet.
The company has started providing its workers with Peugeot iOn vehicles, which don’t produce tailpipe CO2 emissions.
The first iOn to be delivered is now in use at the construction company’s project for the London Borough of Camden.
Apollo’s operations manager in Camden, Barry McCarthy, said: “These electric cars will make a fantastic contribution to our energy efficiency on site, and have the added advantage of an excellent safety record, and capacity to carry up to four people. It will be great to see them being rolled out to other projects.”
Alongside their bigger capacity, the iOns can travel for up to 93 miles after being charged for eight hours from a domestic socket.
There are charging points which electric car drivers can use across London.
Apollo is planning to add two more iOns to the fleet for its next project with London’s Merton Priory Homes.
Peugeot fleet director, Phil Robson, said: “The iOn range could have been designed with Apollo’s London sites in mind. Not only does it have excellent credentials in reducing the impact of vehicle tailpipe CO2 emissions, but it is exempt from the London congestion charge and can park at no cost in some areas.”
