South Wales Police Trial EV Vehicle
Cenin Renewables is pleased to be part of a trial with South Wales Police to investigate the feasibility of EV vehicles within their fleet. The electricity used to charge this vehicle comes from 100% renewable sources generated on site by a solar farm, wind turbine and AD plant. The car shown on charge at Cenin’s Parc Stormy site is a 2019 BMW i3S, which has a range of 153 miles from its 120Ah battery and a 0-60 time of 6.8 seconds. The vehicle sits on low drag wheels/tyres to reduce rolling resistance and achieve efficient aerodynamics, whilst also incorporating lightweight composite body materials designed to be recycled after vehicle deconstruction. Vehicles like this could dramatically reduce the carbon footprint of a service fleet.
