E-van trial creates a BUZZ

Wednesday 6th November 2019

Electric vehicle mavericks buzzEV are loaning one of their fleet of electric vans to our outreach team to assist in the delivery of our STEM outreach programme to primary schools across the region.

London-based buzzEV offers electric cars and vans for rental to business, sporting and educational establishments across the UK. They’ll soon be providing electric bikes too!

Founder and CEO, Irshad Akhtar says that “buzzEV wants to change the way we look at mobility and make it more efficient and environmentally friendly. The ideology buzzEV offers its customers is to provide automated App- based short-term hire through to longer-term contract hire and leasing options on all electric or plug-in hybrid cars and vans. We will provide a complete solution for all your transportation needs including charging and maintenance of the vehicles”.

We love all things entrepreneurial and educational, which makes buzzEV a great partner for Science Oxford. It is a young, innovative company that’s changing the way we think about transport and is keen to educate the current and next generations about clean energy and sustainability.

As Irshad says, “We are excited about working with Science Oxford because we want to reach young people and teach them about sustainability. We look forward to seeing the buzzEV electric van in primary schools across the region over the next few months.”

Our CEO Steve Burgess says, “We are very pleased to be partnering with buzzEV on this pilot project. The new electric van will be fantastic for delivering our Science Oxford outreach programme to primary schools. It will help us to inspire more young people about the wonders of science and allow the team to expand their reach and impact”.

The new Science Oxford centre at Stansfeld Park has plenty of green credentials of its own, including solar PV, air-source heat pumps, a green roof, solar shading and, of course, electric charging points in the car park. Perfect for our new buzzEV electric van, which is already plugged in!
