Ipswich Borough Council requires 17 x vans to replace current vehicles that have reached the end of their useful life. The Council has resolved to procure electrically powered vehicles where possible to reduce the impact on the local environment from the operation of its fleet.


The Crown Commercial Services Framework Agreement – RM6060 has been used to identify suitable vehicles. This framework allows a comparison of vehicle specifications, pricing and selection of the vehicle most appropriate. The best value electric vehicle for IBC use was identified as the Renault Kangoo.


The decision made was to purchase these vehicles from Renault at a total cost of £259,971.40 after discounts and government grant
