Norfolk Fire Service adds Chevrolet Volt to fleet

Date: 18 April 2013   |   Author: Rachel Burgess

Norfolk Fire Service has added a Chevrolet Volt to its fleet as part of its green agenda.

The authority said the electric range-extender vehicle eliminated range anxiety for the force while helping its work on climate change and environmental protection, which has seen overall carbon emissions reduced by 37% so far. Business mileage has dropped by a quarter.

Chief fire officer Nigel Williams said: "When looking forward for new ways to continue to decrease emissions the Volt came through our trials process with flying colours as the best next move we could make in terms of our fleet of emergency response cars.

Williams added: "The Volt is around 75% more efficient on emissions compared to our current benchmark and will more than double and possibly triple the mpg - making it a great step towards pushing our own targets for reducing our environmental impact."
