We’ve taken receipt of our first all-electric van this week at Belfield Home & Leisure, Ilkeston and it represents another milestone on our electrification journey, adding to the electric fork-lift trucks we’ve been introducing to our fleet, to replace gas-powered fork-lifts.

Belfield Goes Electric

The Toyota Proace City L1 Electric Icon Van 50kWh Auto, replaces a Diesel Citroen Despatch and eliminates tail-pipe emissions, helping to reduce C02 and improve local air quality.

Reece Hawley our Electrician will be using this new electric vehicle to work across site, visit contractors and pick up parts when needed. He’s roughly covering 25 miles a day at present and says its lovely to drive and extremely quiet.
