The John Lewis Partnership is replacing its home services fleet with electric vehicles as it strives to reach a target of transitioning 4,000 cars, vans and light trucks to EV by 2030. Trials for the initiative will begin next month and feature a mixed charging solution incorporating depot, public network and home charging by EV technology specialist, Flexible Power Systems (FPS). FPS will also integrate data collected into a wider electrification plan for John Lewis’ 350 vehicles, which provide home estimating and fitting services. The move is part of the partnership’s commitment to have a zero fossil free fleet by 2030. The partnership also aims to electrify all light trucks, vans and cars by 2030. For farm vehicles, a sector where this is not currently possible, HVO biodiesel will be used.
