USA: New Belgium adds electric vehicles to fleet, public charging stations

New Belgium Brewing Co., which prides itself on being an eco-friendly company, is going electric with the addition of electric vehicles to its delivery fleet.

The brewery is adding two electric plug-in Nissan Leafs to its local delivery fleet and making its on-site electrical charging stations open and free to the public. The two vehicles will be used for local sales support.

“We chose to move into the electric vehicle realm because electric vehicles have the potential to be zero-emissions whereas gasoline and diesel cars do not,” said New Belgium Sustainability Specialist Katie Wallace in a prepared statement. “Even charging a car on a coal grid emits fewer greenhouse gasses than an average gasoline-powered engine.”

On average, plug-in vehicles are 33 percent more efficient than conventional combustion engines and perform on par with hybrid vehicles for fuel efficiency, according to the brewery.
