Following a successful trial in 2014, Premier now operate England's largest fleet of 100% Electric Taxis and our fleet of Nissan Leafs and Nissan e-NV200 minibuses continues to grow week by week!
With air pollution being a major concern in towns throughout the country we believe these pure electric vehicles will make a real difference to the people of Blackpool and the surrounding areas.
We have in place our own rapid charger infrastructure. This consists of 8 chargers at 4 strategically placed locations around the Blackpool area, making it the largest private network in Lancashire and possibly the UK. As our fleet continues to grow we will expand our rapid charger network.
In addition to the obvious environmental benefits, our drivers also benefit zero fuel costs.
Managing Director John Cutler said "Whilst our drivers previously spent up to £140 per week on fuel, as their 50% fuel contribution, the full cost has now been taken on by the company, meaning they are up to £140 per week better off".
"Our drivers have enthusiastically embraced the new technology understanding the need for change. They are all looking forward to increasing their earnings through Premier with the all electric vehicles".
In September 2015 we introduced a 100% electric minibus, the Nissan e-NV200. You can find out more about that vehicle here.
