CitySprint is set to trial a hydrogen van over the next six months for its same-day deliveries within London, UK.
In partnership with Mitie, CitySprint will monitor its delivery performance against the rest of its green fleet to determine its total emission output. The Renault hydrogen van is powered by a battery and hydrogen fuel cell, allowing for up to 200 miles of travel.
CitySprint has also committed to increasing its green fleet in the quest for a cleaner, low carbon London.
Patrick Gallagher, CitySprint group’s chief executive, said, “Since the launch of our green fleet this August, we’ve already cut back on our CO? emissions by as much as 10 tonnes.
“The trial of a hydrogen van is on a long list of environmentally friendly vehicles we have tested over the years. We hope that along with our growing cargo bike fleet, this can prove to be a sustainable option and continue our commitment to reducing air pollution across the UK cities we operate in.”
