An electric vehicle has been chosen as the official Mayoral Car for one council in Merseyside, leading the way in saving the planet and saving taxpayers money! The 100% electric ECOSYMPH Leaf was chosen by Sefton Council in a sponsorship lease agreement with Merseyside based specialists SYMPHONY EV
The top-of-the-range ECOSYMPH Leaf has zero emissions, making it road tax exempt and with the added bonus of approximately 85% less maintenance costs, it becomes even more appealing. The vehicle is quick to charge at 100 miles in 30 minutes and running costs are also impressive – on average the ECOSYMPH range is 120 miles per charge, costing about £15.00 per 1,000 miles.
Sefton Council is now believed to be the only local authority in the UK to have a permanent electric mayoral car for civic engagements. The vehicle has been leased for a year and can be charged at various electric points across the borough; it can seat up to five people and is even fitted with a solar panel, which powers the sat nav and the air conditioning.
A FAST INTELLIGENT FUTURE PROOF charging point was also installed at the Mayoral Garage by SYMPHONY EV – Charging Solutions, who are NW sales and Installation Partner and OLEV Government Approved providers of the ‘Rapid EV Charging system 100 miles in 30 minutes.
John Robinson, managing director at SYMPHONY EV Ltd, said: “We are delighted to lease such a great environmentally friendly car to Sefton Council at the best value possible to both parties.
“The vehicle really is the way forward and I’m sure the Mayor of Sefton will enjoy travelling to all her many engagements, proudly knowing she is doing her bit for the environment.”
Mayor of Sefton, Cllr Maureen Fearn, added: “In Sefton we are very keen to lead the way on all environmental and green issues. By leasing the new electric vehicle this clearly demonstrates our commitment to provide and promote a clean and low emissions transport system throughout the whole borough. It is also very cheap to run and so helps form part of the savings many local authorities like Sefton currently have to make.”
