First electric car for Los Realejos fleet
Los Realejos has started the purchase of electric vehicles for its municipal fleet.
The council has incorporated three new cars, one of them with this technology, to reinforce the equipment and versatility of its services.
They were presented by the mayor of Los Realejos, Manuel Domínguez, and the councillor for Contracting and General Services Noelia González.
The electric car is the first one of its kind for the municipality but it is hoped to grow the fleet and another one may be added later this year.
“It is another step towards incorporating cleaner energies,” said the Mayor.
The model Renault Kangoo Z.E. acquired by the council has a battery with an average autonomy of 270 kilometres. The full recharge is around six hours, while one hour of recharging is enough to travel 35 kilometres.
Advantages include the zero emission of carbon dioxide, as well as the lack of sound emission, so that atmospheric and acoustic pollution are eliminated.
