Correos has acquired 40 electric vans, doubling the number of such vehicles in its fleet to 80.

It has deployed them in 16 locations across Spain: Madrid, Valladolid, Barcelona, Bilbao, Hierro, Santander, Alicante, Palma de Mallorca, Castellón de la Plana , Cádiz, Córdoba, Jaén, Seville, Las Palmas, Puerto de la Cruz and San Sebastián de la Gomera.

Renault is the supplier of the post office’s electric fleet.
