MG Motor and DriveElectric have teamed up to supply a batch of electric vehicles to support Haringey Council’s Covid-19 response efforts.
The vehicles are being used to service distribution hubs across the north London council’s territory, delivering essential supplies from the hubs to families in need under the Connected Communities campaign; more than 700 food parcels have been delivered by the fleet already.
Adam Kemp, sales director at DriveElectric, said: “We have a long-standing relationship with Haringey Council and when we heard about their requirement for vehicles to deliver food parcels, we immediately got involved. The MG ZS EV is the perfect car for this requirement. As well as being 100% electric, it’s got plenty of room for passengers and plenty of space to carry food parcels. Coronavirus is a huge challenge to the country, and as a business we are delighted to be able to do our bit to support Haringey Council and their hard-working volunteers.”
MG is also supplying up to 100 MG ZS EV battery electric SUVs to NHS organisations across the UK. The first six cars were supplied by Chorley Group MG to the Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Trust last month and since then Nathaniel Cars in Bridgend has supplied 25 cars to three NHS Trusts covering south Wales. Dealers in Northern Ireland, Scotland and north-east England have also supported the scheme.
