Chase Evans, a London estate & letting agent, has decided to electrify its car fleet in a pretty bold way.
About 95% of its fleet is being converted from petrol vehicles to BMW's plug-in hybrid 330e.
The 2016 BMW 330e is currently rated by EPA at up to 14 miles/22.5 km of real world all-electric range via its 7.6 kWh battery.
"The first 50 vehicles of the new fleet are being rolled out in Spring 2016 and are all from BMW’s new 330e range emphasising Chase Evans’ dedication to reducing their carbon footprint and showcasing both the company branding and the ecological message.
Thanks to the BMW eDrive technology, the vehicles will reduce the company’s energy waste, whilst still offering a luxury experience with the fuel efficiency of a small car. The ideal solution for day-to-day requirements."
Ian Ruffle, Operations Director at Chase Evans said:
“Due to the nature of our business our staff cover a lot of miles on short journeys in a densely populated, urban environment and so reducing our carbon footprint is important to us. These cars not only look great, but they also give us the peace of mind that we are playing our part in reducing energy waste and pollution.
We chose to work with BMW not only because they have mastered this new technology, but their professionalism and customer service has been exceptional and we look forward to building on this new relationship.”
Kevin Hewitt-Devine, Business Development Manager at Sytner said:
“Sytner are delighted to support a long standing partner and supply Chase Evans with their new green fleet of plug in hybrid electric vehicles.
Chase Evans are early adopters of the 330e model, and with emissions of just 49g/km C02 this will represent a significant reduction in their carbon footprint. The technology on these vehicles is market leading and goes hand in hand with Chase Evans’ forward thinking approach.
The 330e is the ideal car for driving in and around London, raising fuel efficiency and reducing pollution while still offering the luxury and performance you would expect from a BMW.”
