British Gas has ordered one thousand new all-electric Vivaro-e vans from Vauxhall, the largest commercial battery electric vehicle order in the UK to date. The battery electric vehicle s will arrive over the next twelve months and be rolled out nationwide across the British Gas engineer workforce. The engineers who receive the new vans will be chosen from volunteers but also targeting areas where it is important to lower emissions and where a van already needs replacing. The British Gas engineers will install the chargers at engineer homes. The company is currently upskilling engineers in EV charging and is accelerating EV adoption for homes and businesses with charger installs and EV tariffs.

British Gas owner Centrica has committed to electrifying its twelve thousand strong fleet by 2030 and will be making further orders with Vauxhall for electric vehicles as soon as they are available. This may include the all-electric Combo-e, available from Summer 2021.

British Gas is committed to the transition to electric vehicles which involves changing fleet as well as helping consumers and businesses with charge points and infrastructure. British Gas chose to work with Vauxhall as they are able to give a large number of high-quality and low emission vans to effectively serve customers. Transport is a key area where British Gas can improve carbon emissions and is an important part of our strategy to meet net zero targets.
