RED Driving School announces electric fleet target

Date: 01 August 2022   |   Author: Sean Keywood

RED Driving School has announced it wants its fleet to be zero-emission at the tailpipe by 2025.

The company currently has more than 1,500 vehicles on its fleet, mostly consisting of petrol Renault Clio and Vauxhall Corsa models.

It said that as well as offering EVs to instructors, it also wanted to investigate all aspects of zero-emission driving, including home, kerbside, and public charging, and green energy tariffs for instructors.

CEO Seb Goldin said: "Because of the size of our fleet, and the way these cars are run, electrifying the fleet over the next few years is a hugely ambitious and complex undertaking.

"The needs of our instructors mean they require a supermini or small family car, and as most of our franchisees operate in metropolitan areas they require cars with a workable range in excess of 150 urban miles between charges.

"Finding the right car that can provide the combination of range and cost in the next few years will be crucial, and so we are keen to discuss these requirements with car makers."
