In the course of the renewed order with Vauxhall, Centrica also said that it would “never buy another vehicle with an internal combustion engine”. The utility company said it would place further orders for electric vehicles with Vauxhall as soon as they were available. Here Centrica is apparently alluding not only to the Vivaro-e for the technicians in customer service, but also to all other company and fleet cars.

British Gas technicians are said to be able to volunteer to switch to the electric delivery vehicle. At the same time, the company said it will be prioritising areas with high pollution levels.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said: “It’s encouraging to see that one of Britain’s best-known brands is leading the way with the largest commercial EV fleet in the UK.” He noted that: “With more zero-emission models of cars and vans on the market than ever before, there has never been a better time for drivers and businesses to make the switch.”

Of course, this is a huge show of confidence in Vauxhall from Centrica. Paul Willcox, Managing Director of Vauxhall Motors, said:
“I am delighted that British Gas has added to its initial order of fully-electric Vauxhall Vivaro-e vans that now represents the largest electric vehicle order for a commercial fleet in the UK.”

Someone with a better memory than me may remember better but didn't BG already do this with the enV200 - then change its mind and scrap them?
