M&S Put First Modec Electric Van Into Service

UK-based retailer M&S (Marks and Spencer) has launched its first Modec electric delivery van. The custom built Modec vehicle will operate in London from December 2008.

Fitted with a refrigerated body, the Modec carries the same load as a standard M&S van, and covers a range of more than 70 miles with a maximum speed of 50 mph on one overnight charge. Because it is an electric vehicle, it requires no road tax, MOT or tachograph and is not liable for the congestion charge.

The Modec electric van, which will deliver to offices and stores in London, will save around nine tonnes of CO2 per year by replacing a traditional diesel delivery van.
