Electric Vehicles

Airports are uniquely placed to support the shift towards alternatively fuelled vehicles. The past 15 years have seen electric vehicle technology shift from concept and early adopter models into a viable, conventional and mainstream vehicle option for fleets. There are semi and full electric powertrains within all categories of vehicles from cars and vans to small HGVs and buses. These electric and zero emission vehicles can be particularly suited to busy airport operation where daily mileages are low and the duty cycle is very stop-start. The panels above will give you up-to-date information about the vehicles available on the market, how to build a business case and what support is available on site at Heathrow.
