Independent furniture retailer Furniture Village has secured a deal to integrate a fleet of electric vehicles.
In partnership with Peugeot, the car manufacturer will supply 25 e-2008s to Furniture Village, which boasts a 50kWh battery connected to a 136hp electric motor and offers up to a 214-mile range.
Furniture Village said the vehicles will be used by both field managers and store managers for travel requirements between stores and customer locations across the UK.
The move for the electric fleet comes under the business’ sustainability strategy, helping to reduce its carbon footprint.
The retailer is also installing a number of EV charge points at its stores and fulfilment centres.
