The Eden Project leads by example

The Eden Project has taken delivery of a new fleet of all-electric Renault ZOE and Kangoo Z.E models.

Comprising of three ZOE hatchbacks and 14 Kangoo Z.E. in Van and Maxi Crew Van Cab specifications, the vehicles replace the Eden Project’s previous Renault EV fleet and join its existing Renault Twizys.

The Eden Project says its electric Renault fleet has allowed them to lead by example when it comes to raising awareness of the benefits of electric vehicles in reducing carbon emissions. Compared to equivalent diesel and petrol vehicles, its original Renault EV fleet saved nearly 17 tonnes of CO2 since its inception in 2016, clocking up nearly 94,000 miles.

Rita Broe, marketing director of the Eden Project, said: “The electric Renaults are the backbone of the Eden Project. The beautiful fleet of vehicles suits our purposes perfectly, doing everything we need them to do while having minimal impact on the environment and communicating important messages about sustainability to our visitors.”
