Mitie: 50% of fleet is now electric


Mitie has transitioned 50% of its vehicles to electric, part of its wider Plan Zero pledge, which includes a commitment to fully electrifying its fleet by the end of 2025.

The latest EV roll-out, that saw Mitie pass the 50% mark, was a fleet of Vauxhall Vivaro-Es, which will be driven by Mitie’s Technical Services mobile engineers.

Last month, Mitie deployed 60 EVs across some of its major contracts including Magnox, where EVs are used by engineers conducting essential maintenance services to critical nuclear infrastructure.

In addition, Mitie recently supported the Defence Infrastructure Organisation in securing 20 EVs at its Gibraltar site.

Other examples include the roll-out of more than 100 EV vans across major contracts including the Home Office and National Grid.

Mitie’s range of EVs are used by its staff across the country, in different operations, from engineering and maintenance to security and landscaping.

To support the rapid growth of its EV fleet, Mitie has also installed 2,800 EV charging stations across customer sites and employees’ homes.

The company’s EV transition started in 2018 and the company introduced its 3,000th EV last December.

Heidi Thompson, group fleet manager, Mitie, said, “Reaching the halfway stage in our roadmap to achieve a zero-emission fleet is an important milestone which underscores our commitment to our Plan Zero pledge, and our goal of fully electrifying our vehicles by the end of 2025.

“With more than 3,500 electric-powered vehicles now in operation, we’re proud to boast one of the largest electric fleets in the UK.

“Mitie continues to lead the way in fleet electrification and is proud to be at the forefront of sustainable practices within our industry as well as supporting other organisations to achieve their own net zero targets.”
