City TM | Another key sustainability move with new fleet addition
City Traffic Management has taken a bold step in its sustainability movement by purchasing its first fully electric vehicle and adding it to its fleet.
This decision is part of the company’s commitment to exploring all options for sustainability & environmental health within its business, including hydrogen options and synthetic fuels as they become viable.
The cost of purchasing and using fossil fuels continues to rise, and City TM recognises the importance of finding alternative, eco-friendly solutions. By investing in an electric vehicle, the company is taking a proactive approach to reducing its carbon footprint and contributing to a more sustainable future.
City TM already has EV chargers installed at three of its locations, which makes it easier for the company to add electric vehicles to its fleet. This infrastructure investment demonstrates the company’s foresight in anticipating the growing demand for electric vehicles and taking action to meet that demand.
The electric vehicle market is rapidly expanding, with many new models being released each year. As the technology continues to evolve and become more affordable, it is likely that more businesses will follow City TM’s lead and invest in electric vehicles for their fleets.
In addition to the environmental benefits of electric vehicles, they also offer a range of economic advantages. Electric vehicles have lower fuel costs and require less maintenance than traditional gas-powered vehicles. Over time, this can result in significant cost savings for the company.
The purchase of the electric vehicle by City TM sends a powerful message to other businesses about the importance of sustainability and the role that businesses can play in reducing their impact on the environment. As the company continues to explore new options for sustainable transport, it is clear that they are committed to making a positive difference in the world.
The vehicle purchase is the latest move in City TM’s sustainability advancements, and comes on the back of the installation of EV chargers at its delivery HUB’s, but is also in line with the company’s membership of Greener Highways.
