Light commercial vehicles
In 2020, we committed to increasing the number of electric vehicles (EVs) in our light commercial fleet to 2,000 by 2022. We currently have 1,010 EVs, 155 e-trikes and Ireland’s first 7.5 tonne electric truck in our fleet. However, it has become apparent that we will not achieve our ambition of 2,000 EVs by 2022 due to the pandemic, as well as widespread automotive production and delivery delays. We are reviewing our transport strategy to accommodate for these supply chain challenges as well as the availability of alternative fuel options and dynamic route planning. Therefore, we have decided to update our commitment to 50% of the fleet to run on alternative fuel sources to diesel by 2025. In 2021, 28% of our fleet ran on alternative fuel sources and we will be reporting on this percentage in future Reports.
