Ignacio Ramos, the mayor of Pilar de la Horadada, has taken delivery of six new vehicles, three of them electric for the municipal council.
Three of the vehicles are one hundred percent electric, with zero emission for which the council received a subsidy of 18,000 euros, 20 percent of which is from the Savings and Efficiency in Transportation Program of the Valencian Institute for Business Competitiveness IVACE.
The vehicles will be used by the departments of Works and Services, Social Services, Infrastructure and the Local Police for surveillance tasks and other municipal activities.
Ignacio Ramos was keen to highlight the subsidy received following the acquisition of three of the six vehicles, the first electric vehicles in the Pilar council fleet.
The councillor for infrastructure, José Francisco Albaladejo said that it is great news for the city council to have electric vehicles, demonstrating how they are becoming increasingly respectful of the environment. Other advantages are the zero emissions, a running cost of only one euro per hundred kilometres and reduced maintenance.
