Tesco electrifies deliveries to city centre stores

Tesco is using a zero-emission electric lorry to make deliveries from its distribution centres to stores in city centres.

The first electrically powered lorry of its kind, made by Renault Trucks, is now delivering to more than 400 stores in Greater London, with further electric lorries entering service in the coming months.

As many towns and cities are planning zero-emission zones to tackle poor air quality, electric vehicles will play an increasingly important role in delivering goods into areas where diesel lorries are prohibited.

Tesco is also working with Volta Trucks on a prototype full-electric lorry. The Volta Zero was specifically designed to help tackle the problem of emissions in urban areas as well as improving road safety as a result of its purpose-built, ground-up design.
