Fleet of electric vehicles offered for use to help hospitals, vulnerable groups and the elderly

A fleet of electric vehicles (EV) has been offered, free of charge, by EV supply and installation company, SYMPHONY Electric Vehicles Zero Emissions for a Greener Future, for use by community groups, hospitals and charities to make deliveries of food and essential medical provisions.

The vehicles can be charged at one of the network of charge points across the region or by an ordinary domestic 13amp socket, making it easy to keep them operational during this time. In addition, councils across the Liverpool City Region have offered use of their depot charging points and, where possible, use of further vehicles if demand increases.

SYMPHONY also has secure storage at a number of sites across the City Region which it can make available if needed.

John Robinson, Managing Director of SYMPHONY EV-ZE said, “We have around thirty vehicles  currently stood down from usual day to day operation, so it makes sense to offer them to those organisations who need them. We would usually be installing and maintaining charge points at hospitals, hence we have H&S clearance to enter the sites, which should simplify things if we are called upon to help with deliveries.

“We are already working with a number of foodbanks, helping them to distribute to those in need, and we have capacity to do more. As community groups mobilise in the coming weeks, my offer is there for the vehicles to be used if they can make a difference.”

If you are interested in volunteering to help, or your organisation would like to apply for use of a vehicle, please email ze@symphonyev.co.uk giving a brief outline of your interest.

SYMPHONY EV-ZE help Zip World to go electric

To help preserve the beautiful Welsh countryside that is so vital to its operations, adventure experience company Zip World has started running an electric vehicle fleet.

Based in north Wales, the firm is best known for running Europe’s longest and the world’s fastest zip-line, with other aspects of the business including exploring caverns, racing on zip-lines, and tree-top safaris. With three locations in and around the Snowdonia National Park, minimising its impact on the environment is an important part of the firm’s ethos.

With that in mind, Zip World asked SYMPHONY EV-ZE  to supply 15 electric vehicles, made up of Nissan Leaf’s and e-NV200s. These are used to travel between the company’s three sites, saving money and producing zero-tailpipe emissions.

To make the most of the EV fleet, we also installed three fast charging points – 7-22 kW – two at the company’s FForest site, and one at the Titan location.

Sefton Council choose SYMPHONY EV for a further 3 years

We are delighted to announce that Sefton Council has chosen SYMPHONY EV to provide an electric vehicle as the official mayoral car for a further 3 years.The 100% electric top of-the-range Nissan Leaf Tekna was chosen by Sefton Council in a sponsorship lease agreement.

The council is leading the way in saving the planet and saving taxpayers’ money too, as the electric car costs about £15.00 per 1,000 miles to run and is exempt from road tax.

Mayor of Sefton, Cllr Stephen Kermode, said: “We are very keen to set an example on all environmental and green issues and this highlights our commitment to energy savings.

“By leasing a new electric vehicle it clearly demonstrates our commitment to provide and promote a clean and low emissions transport system throughout the whole borough.

“The new vehicle is very cheap to run and so helps form part of the savings most local authorities like Sefton currently have to make.

“The car itself is very comfortable, looks good, is extremely economical and most importantly saves on the council’s Carbon footprint.”

John Robinson, managing director at SYMPHONY EV added: “It’s great that Sefton has chosen to continue using an electric car as their civic vehicle and we are delighted to have successfully tendered to provide it again.

“We are committed to promoting green transport, so for Sefton to choose such a high profile way of supporting green technology is really positive.”

As part of the sponsorship deal, SYMPHONY EV offer the ECOSYMPH Bundle, which includes a charging point and battery hire, they will reimburse Sefton Council for the electric usage based on mileage every six months, service the vehicle and also offer roadside assistance.

Green Party back SYMPHONY EV zero emission vehicles & retrofit EV conversions

Green Party back SYMPHONY EV zero emission vehicles & retrofit EV conversions

SYMPHONY EV recently chauffeured Green Party leader Natalie Bennett during her recent visit to Liverpool in a 100% zero emission Nissan Leaf provided by Nissan Liverpool. The Green Party endorse both our 100% electric zero emission vehicles and our award winning EV retrofit conversion technology, which has been approved on one of the oldest small vehicles, a 13 year old Renault Clio pictured above.

The retrofit technology will soon be bridged across to the Bowler Hat Heritage Scheme, where in London they aim to keep the traditional red buses, red telephone boxes and black hackney cabs.

Black cabs rack up the miles over a short period, accumulating 500,000 – 600,000 miles in no time at all, coming to the end of their fuel life, but often the body and electrics of the car have 10-15 years of mileage left in them, so it is a fantastic recycle uplift scheme.

Once approved this project could be rolled out to the other major UK cities.
