The Mayor

Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written response received on 8 April 2011:

The Metropolitan Police have five Toyota plug-in hybrid Prius cars as part of a three year demonstration programme. There have also been short trials of a Citroen C-Zero car, with further trials planned for the Peugeot iOn, Renault Kangoo Z.E. and Nissan Leaf.

TfL currently has six Toyota plug-in hybrid Prius cars and four Mitsuibishi I-MiEV electric cars. Four Smith electric transit vans have been delivered and will enter the TfL fleet in late Spring. These vehicles were all part-funded through the DfT Low Carbon Vehicle Procurement Programme.

In addition there are 14 Alke electric vehicles in use on the contract with Serco and 16 Modec electric vehicles in use by Highways and Maintenance and Works contractors.

The TfL Electric Vehicle delivery team is actively working with the GLA group to increase the number of EVs in the fleet.
