Alstom switches on to electric fleet- Businessgreen mobile

Engineering giant pilots Nissan Leaf at Rugby headquarters
Engineering giant Alstom looks set to become one of a growing number of companies adding zero emissions cars to its fleets after it began trials of an all-electric Nissan Leaf.
The company yesterday revealed it was using the Leaf for journeys and taxi trips at its Rugby headquarters, picking up guests and colleagues from Rubgy train station one mile away.
The car has been leased initially until October, but could be further extended if trials prove successful.

Iain Rutherford, unit managing director at Alstom in Rugby, said the low running costs of electric cars was a major attraction.
“We wanted to provide a cheap to run and more efficient alternative to taxis and our traditional pool cars for short hops, and the Leaf is proving extremely popular,” he said in a statement.
“We’ve calculated that it costs us about two pence a mile to run and it also makes it just a little bit greener for us on short hops around town.”
