The Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) has just purchased nine new electric Renault Kangoo mini-vans, which they will use at Dublin and Cork airports. The DAA took part in a test programme supported by ESB ecars where they tested a Kangoo Z.E. for a month to check its suitability for use at the airports. Commenting on the arrival of their new fleet, Mary Coveney, Head of Sustainability DAA said, “The trial helped us build confidence throughout the organisation that buying electric vehicles wasn’t just good for the environment, but also made sense from an operational perspective, electric vehicles are perfect for an airport environment, as they have a range of 120km and will always be close to a main charging point.” Patrick Magee, Renault Ireland Sales & Network Director said he was delighted that DAA had chosen the Renault Kangoo Z.E. for its new electric fleet. “The Kangoo Z.E. has been a very popular choice for both public and private businesses looking to reduce costs whilst helping the environment and it’s great to see the DAA take up the electric challenge.”
