Organisations Trust Fox Electric Utility Vehicles to Reduce Their Carbon Footprint


San Fransisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/20/2012 -- The UK government has committed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 34% by 2020 and if it is to meet that target, businesses and individuals need to take action to reduce their carbon footprint. A carbon footprint is defined as the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere as a result of the activities of a particular individual, organization, or community.

For each gallon of petrol consumed, 10.4 kg of carbon dioxide is emitted into the atmosphere. Every day, millions of drivers get behind the wheel and compound the problem. That is why the British government is keen to promote the use of electric utility vehicles. Unlike petrol, diesel and hybrid vehicles, electric vehicles are propelled by an on-board battery, which is charged from the mains electricity supply. Not only does this make them cheaper to run, they also emit much less CO2.

Electric vans are becoming increasingly popular in several sectors and one of the leading suppliers of industrial electrical utility vehicles has launched an online presence at

The site offers a huge range of vehicles as well as quality editorial content on a host of electrical utility vehicle topics.

The Fox Electric Utility Vehicles website is easy to use. A menu bar on the home page splits the site into categories of Vehicles, Bespoke, Sectors, Test Drive, Hire A Vehicle, News and Contact Us.

There is a separate page of each vehicle, which includes an overview, detailed technical specifications plus a video that highlights the main features of the vehicle. Because these vehicles are designed to be used in various different sectors the website explains: “We recognise that different organisations have very different needs from their vehicles and have very different operating characteristics. To this extent we can modify a model to fit the users exact requirements.”

Fox Electric Utility Vehicles will bring an electric van to an organisation’s site so they can test drive it and see how it performs under normal operating conditions. To book a test drive, site visitors simply need to fill in a simple form or telephone the technical sales team.

Visitors who are interested in hiring electric utility vehicles will find all the relevant information on the hire a vehicle page.
