Nationwide Towing & Transport Introduces Electric & Hybrid Vehicles

Nationwide Towing & Transport Introduces Electric & Hybrid Vehicles

In an era where sustainability and eco-friendliness are at the forefront of everyone's mind, Nationwide Towing & Transport is proud to announce a monumental step towards a greener future. With immense excitement, we have introduced a number of electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electric vehicles in our company vehicle fleet, heralding a new chapter in our journey towards environmental stewardship and innovative service delivery. This initiative is further bolstered by our achievement of ISO 14001 Certification, underscoring our commitment to environmental management and sustainability.

A Commitment to Sustainability and Innovation

Nationwide Towing & Transport has always been synonymous with reliability and efficiency. By integrating electric and hybrid electric vehicles into our fleet, we are not only upholding our legacy of excellence but also reaffirming our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint. This move is a testament to our dedication to sustainability, showcasing our endeavour to lead by example in the automotive transport and recovery industry.

The transition towards electric and hybrid electric vehicles is a crucial step in our sustainability journey. It reflects our understanding of the environmental impact of our operations and our continuous effort to innovate and adopt practices that contribute positively to the environment. Alongside our electric vehicle initiative, we've also included hybrid electric tow trucks. These hybrids save about 30% of the fuel and emissions compared to a regular tow truck. This effort marks just the beginning of our plan to transform our fleet.

Why the Shift to Electric and Hybrid Electric Vehicles Matters

The importance of shifting towards electric and hybrid electric vehicles in our industry cannot be overstated. These vehicles offer a plethora of environmental benefits, including reduced greenhouse gas emissions and a significant decrease in air pollution. By introducing electric and hybrid electric vehicles to our fleet, we are directly contributing to a cleaner, healthier environment, and supporting the global transition to sustainable transportation.

Moreover, these vehicles are not only good for the planet but also for our business and our clients. They promise lower maintenance and operational costs, thanks to fewer moving parts and a more efficient powertrain. This efficiency allows us to optimise our service offerings, ensuring that we continue to provide top-tier services at competitive prices.

Exciting Features and Future Plans

Our new electric vehicle tow truck is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, ensuring that we can offer the same high level of service that our clients have come to expect, but in a more eco-friendly manner. With advanced towing and transport capabilities, our EV and hybrid electric vehicles are ready to meet the diverse needs of our clients, all while contributing to a greener planet.

Looking forward, Nationwide Towing & Transport is excited about the possibilities that lie ahead. We are committed to expanding our fleet of electric, hybrid electric, and, come July, hydrogen-powered tow trucks from our partnership with Hyzon, which promise zero emissions. With around 10 hybrid electric tow trucks being built for delivery this year and 4 hydrogen-powered tow trucks on the way, there's much happening in this space that underscores our commitment to reducing our environmental impact. This is just the beginning of our journey towards a more sustainable future.

Join Us on Our Green Journey

As we embark on this exciting new chapter, we invite our clients and the community to join us in supporting a more sustainable future. By choosing Nationwide Towing & Transport, you are choosing a partner that not only provides exceptional towing and transport services but also cares deeply about the environment. Together, we can make a significant impact in promoting sustainability and eco-friendliness in the automotive transport and recovery industry.
