Milk & More has started taking delivery of an order of 159 zero-emission vans from LDV.

The EV80s will be in place by the end of September and will take Milk & More’s EV fleet – including 150 milk floats and 200 electric street scooters purchased last year – to just more than 500.

The EV80 boasts a 120-mile range on a single charge and, thanks to its high-capacity lithium battery, can be fully charged in less than 90 minutes.

Andrew Kendall, Deputy CEO for Milk & More, said: “We are proud to have one of the largest fleets of electric vehicles in the country.

Our new LDV electric vehicles represent our commitment to transforming the great British milkman into a modern, convenient delivery service which has a sustainable, environmentally friendly proposition at its heart.”

Mark Barrett, general manager of LDV UK & Ireland said of the deal: “Doorstep milk delivery is seeing a revival as people look to be more sustainable by buying their milk in reusable glass bottles.

“Milk & More is a company that prides itself on looking to the future and creating a greener business model.

“As such, the brand’s ethos is in line with LDV’s vision for the future and we are thrilled to be able to provide Milk & More with a fleet of EV80s, which will help to future-proof our business.”
