Airport Parking Firm Flies the Flag for Electric Vehicles
Pioneering Gatwick meet and greet’ parking company Tudor Rose are leading the way again after taking delivery of two all-electric Nissan vehicles.
Tudor Rose Airport Parking has taken delivery of a 30kWh Nissan LEAF and a seven-seat e-NV200 to become the first airport-approved parking operator to introduce a 100% electric fleet.
The vehicles, which have been supplied by Motorline Nissan, operate 24-7 and are used to ferry the company’s team of drivers between the airport terminals and its secure parking facility in nearby Hookwood.
Each vehicle makes between 150 and 200 journeys a day, covering an average of 150 miles. And they have already proved so successful and fit for purpose the company plans to add two more e-NV200 models in the near future.
Tudor Rose expects to make significant savings on fuel and maintenance costs but took the decision to go all electric for environmental reasons. Both the LEAF and e-NV200 offer zero tailpipe emissions.
Adrian Stratulat, Manager of Tudor Rose Airport Parking, said: “We have always been a company that likes to innovate and improve and so we were the first in our sector to introduce things like photographic vehicle inspections.
“The introduction of electric vehicles is another first for Tudor Rose and we are very proud to be leading the way again.
“The LEAF and the e-NV200 make perfect sense for our business – they save us money on fuel, they’re great to drive, have a range that meets our needs and they’re good for the environment.’
