Drive for net zero
Our recent purchase of Ford F-150 Lightning Electric Trucks is a great step forward in Cennox’s mission to minimize impacts on the environment by reducing our carbon emissions. The F-150 Lightning is a revolutionary vehicle designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and contribute to sustainable transportation and service delivery. The first of our new F-150s have arrived and we are looking forward to receiving more, with the intent to deploy them into appropriate markets. With such a varied field force, we are currently reviewing other sizes of electric vehicles for testing to help augment our fleet and deliver the best service possible to our customers while meeting environmental objectives.
Why the F-150 Lightning?
The Ford F-150 Lightning is an all-electric truck, powered by a lithium-ion battery pack, with a targeted range of over 300 miles per charge. It has the capacity to tow heavy loads and carry substantial payloads, making it suitable for our commercial needs.
Electric vehicles produce zero tailpipe emissions, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. Choosing an electric truck can help contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable environment.
Over time, electric vehicles can save you money on fuel costs since electricity is generally cheaper to generate than gasoline or diesel is to produce. Additionally, electric vehicles have fewer moving parts and require less maintenance, leading to potential long-term cost savings.
Lower operating costs
Electric vehicles generally have lower operating costs due to reduced maintenance needs and fewer parts to replace. They also often benefit from various incentives, tax credits, and lower registration fees.
Quiet and smooth driving
Electric vehicles are known for their quiet and smooth driving experience since they lack the noise and vibration associated with traditional internal combustion engines, providing a better driving experience for our staff.
Electric trucks often come with advanced technology and features, including various driver-assistance systems and connectivity options, providing a safer driving experience and reducing the chances of accidents.
Choosing an electric truck can support the development and growth of electric vehicle technology, encouraging manufacturers to invest in cleaner and more sustainable transportation options.
Eyes on the world
Alongside these exciting investments in the US, the Cennox Group is already embarking on EV installation, alternative vehicle fleets, and other environmental initiatives to help in our journey for net zero across the Group.
