Defra fleet ditching diesel
Did you see the news piece about Defra fleet chief Dale Eynon this week?
He’s set out a new strategy for Defra: getting rid of all the diesel vehicles in their fleet and replacing them with hybrids or electrics in the next 7 years.
Pretty ambitious, right?
In the interview with Fleet News, Eynon says that they’ve now “ditched diesel” for cars, and that he actually expects to make savings with this bold move.
This decision comes as a result of the UK government’s planning to ban all sales of new diesel and petrol-only cars by 2040, and Eynon clearly believes he has a plan that’ll allow Defra to get compliant, without it costing them money.
What do you think about this? Have you got plans to implement something similar?
