The future is electric!
Christchurch Airport is committed to becoming more sustainable and is transitioning its vehicle fleet to 100% electric – the first business in the South Island to sign up to a global initiative, EV100.
Miles Continental is proud to supply CIAL’s Volkswagen e-Golf fleet to help them in this endeavour.
Airport chief executive Malcolm Johns says: “We are continually looking at our operations and challenging ourselves to become greener. With the transport sector the fastest-growing contributor to climate change, transitioning our vehicle fleet to electric is a sensible next step.”
The e-Golf was the perfect choice for CIAL as not only is it 100% electric, it has a real-world range of 220km which means more use between charging. The e-Golf is responsive, agile, quiet, intelligent and packed full of safety features – perfect for getting around the airport and Christchurch in style.
