DG Cars, based in Nottingham, is the largest private hire company in the East Midlands with more than 700 vehicles. The council supported them with a grant to contribute toward the installation of a rapid charge point at their head offices in Little Tennis Street.
The charger supports their fleet of six Nissan Leafs, and they plan to introduce more low emission vehicles in the future.
“The benefits of running Ultra Low Emission Vehicles in our fleet are immeasurable from both a business and health perspective. The overall objective is to reduce our carbon and nitrogen dioxide emissions, resulting in cleaner air for the city of Nottingham.”
Dominic Moyes, DG Cars
