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.

Reva G Wiz Charging Adapter

SYMPHONY EV keeps the Twizy and G-Wiz alive with innovative Charging Adapter

As reported on Zap Map last week, our award winning ELECTROSYMPH charging point adapter is allowing all electrical vehicles with a standard 13amp plug, access to nearly 10,000 charging points across the UK.

Until now, owners of the Renault Twizy and the Reva G-Wiz, amongst others, could not take advantage of the connectivity infrastructure.

Our new ELECTROSYMPH charging adapter, which you can buy online here, has been approved by all of the major manufacturers and connects to all on road Mode 2 and Mode 3 charging points.

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.
