Electric vehicles deliver in town and country

Electric vehicles deliver in town and country

Electric delivery vehicles are perfect for busy inner cities where the lack of tailpipe emissions and their near silent running make life far more pleasant for those who live or work there.

Equally significantly, there’s ample opportunity to recharge batteries with growing networks of regular and quick chargers available on the streets.

But EVs could have an even bigger role to play in rural areas. Nissan is about to start field tests to see whether EVs – charged overnight at home – might, in fact, provide a lifeline for residents in areas where regular fuel stations are closing down due to falling demand from an ageing and shrinking population.

Going on patrol with Nissan LEAF

Going on patrol with Nissan LEAF

The phrase ‘looking for leads’ is about to take on a whole new meaning for the Portuguese police, for they have just taken delivery of eight Nissan LEAF electric vehicles. And leads – of the electrical variety – come as standard!

The zero-emission cars, which have flashing blue lights and clear ‘Policia’ markings, will be used by Portugal’s PSP (Policia de Segurança) urban security force mainly as part of its Safe Schools Programme.

Let's (not) hear it for the Renault ZOE

Let's (not) hear it for the Renault ZOE

Winning an award or two would normally be something to shout about… but the all-electric Renault ZOE supermini does everything in silence. So we’ll just have to whisper that ZOE has won a pair of ‘green’ awards.

The Next Green Car Awards 2012, run by the UK’s leading eco-conscious motoring website, has hailed the zero-emission Renault ZOE as its top supermini, highlighting its ‘impressive’ acceleration and ‘normal’ prices.

Sustaining the future

Sustaining the future

It’s a straightforward goal… but the challenge is huge. An initiative from The United Nations General Secretary Ban Ki-moon calls for Sustainable Energy for All by 2030. Achieving it, he says, is “not only possible, but necessary.”

Speaking as the Rio+20 World Summit closed in Rio de Janeiro, he said: “(Sustainable Energy for All) is the golden thread that connects development, social inclusion, and environmental protection. This initiative is already mobilizing significant action from all sectors of society.”
