9. East Devon takes delivery of seven low-emission custom-made electric vans
Seven new environmentally-friendly electric vans, each with a custom-made caged tipping body, are being leased by East Devon District Council in a drive towards reducing its carbon footprint.
The council is one of the first in the country to add the lower emission bespoke Nissan ENV200 vehicles to their fleet with the modification, which means that the vans are used daily to keep the parks and public realm areas of East Devon clean and green. The vans are powered by rechargeable batteries and have a range of between 124 and 187 miles.
