As part of his mobile ‘summer surgery’ in North Herefordshire, Bill Wiggin MP is promoting electric vehicles (EVs) by using an AlphaCity BMW i3.

Fitted with Alphabet’s vehicle sharing technology, Bill Wiggin has been out and about in the i3, advocating the use of EVs in the region as part of a government scheme.

The MP won the chance for an extended trial in the BMW as part of a ‘Road to Zero Report’ parliamentary reception, hosted by the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA) earlier this year.

Alphabet is one of the UK’s leading providers of EVs to business and public sector organisations. It manages more than 138,000 cars and light commercial vehicles on the road – nearly 10% of which are electrified.

Speaking at the handover of the car, Bill Wiggin MP said: “I’m delighted to support the BVRLA and Alphabet’s important work promoting the use of electric vehicles.

“The benefits of these vehicles are clear, they are cleaner and much more cost effective to run. The vehicle leasing, rental and car club sector offers the fastest way to get these new clean cars on the road, but the right incentives and infrastructure need to be in place.”
