As part of its international environmental program Planet Me, which aims to cut CO2 emissions, global postal and express delivery company TNT is currently working with Renault to explore using Renault’s electric vehicles to meet the needs of its activity and operations in the Netherlands. Vehicle development is starting now; vehicles will be available and operational by 2011.
For TNT, electric vehicles represent the ideal solution for its urban distribution activities.
Our work with Renault on the development of electric vehicles fits in perfectly with our ambition to cut CO2 emissions. We will use Renault’s electric LCVs for TNT Post distribution activity in Holland. Renault’s arrival on the electric vehicle market will help to speed up the acceptance of electric cars and will make this means of transport more attractive financially.—Ruben van Doorn, Manager Strategy and CEO Office at TNT
Renault recently unveiled its electric vehicle strategy to vehicle fleet managers.
