Salisbury City Council has announced that they have added four new electric vans to their fleet of vehicles.

The vans, which are Ford Leader Transit 350 L2, were purchased through Hendy Ford and are on a 5-year lease to the City Council.

The Parks Team now have 4 electric vehicles and 1 hybrid electric vehicle, the latter was purchased in 2021. They will be used to travel with equipment to Salisbury’s parks on a daily basis for grounds maintenance including gardening, strimming, and pitch marking, as well as important safety checks and inspections.

The new vans demonstrate the Council’s commitment to lower its carbon footprint for a greener, cleaner Salisbury. The City Council hope to replace all Council owned vehicles with electric powered vehicles as soon as is practically possible.
