John Lewis fleet goes fully electric

John Lewis has announced it is replacing its home services fleet with electric vehicles.

The trial is part of the retailer’s commitment to transition 4,000 cars, vans and light trucks to EV by 2030.

The Partnership is being supported by EV technology specialists Flexible Power Systems, (FPS), which is establishing a mixed charging solution incorporating depot, public network, and home charging.

“This is another step along the path of the John Lewis Partnerships ambition to move completely away from fossils fuels in the fleet by 2030, saving an estimated 500,000 tonnes of CO2 between 2020 & 2030,” said Kate Cosco, product services field manager. “This is a wonderful opportunity to test how electric vehicles work for us in Home Services. The team are extremely excited to get out on the road and to begin driving these new vehicles”

The trial will start next month and FPS will integrate data collected into a wider electrification plan for the 350 Home Services vehicles, which provide home estimating & fitting services for John Lewis.
