The Eden Project has taken delivery of a new fleet of 100% electric ZOE and Kangoo Z.E models by Renault.
Comprising of three Renault ZOE hatchbacks and 14 Renault Kangoo Z.E. in van and maxi crew van cab specifications, the vehicles replace the Eden Project’s previous Renault EV fleet. The latest vehicles complement Eden’s existing Renault Twizys quadricycles.
Compared to equivalent diesel and petrol vehicles, the Eden Project’s original Renault EV fleet saved nearly 17 tonnes of CO2 since its inception in 2016, clocking up nearly 94,000 miles in and around its award-winning facility.
The mix of ZOE and Kangoo Z.E. will fulfil a variety of roles across the Eden Project, being used by its maintenance, horticulture, security, live programming and catering teams. A number of the vehicles will also be assigned to help with the provision of onsite medical support and transporting less able-bodied visitors around the site.
The supply of the new fleet strengthens the partnership between the Eden Project and Renault, which has seen the automotive manufacturer become the Official Car Partner of the Eden Sessions – a series of outdoor concerts by world-famous acts held at the venue – and play a part in key visitor attractions, such as this summer’s Expedition Space where visitors were invited to take a Renault Moon buggy driving test.
