Scotland’s First Fully Electric RCV

ELECTRA Commercial Vehicles provided Scotland’s first entirely electric RCV to North Lanarkshire Council. Their partner Riverside Truck Rental will be supporting the new truck from its Bellshill Depot with its HV4 trained technicians.

North Lanarkshire’s Electra is built on a Mercedes-Benz Econic glider platform and equipped with a Geesink Norba GPM4 hydraulic body and bin lift.
‘The 27 tonne refuse truck produces zero tailpipe emissions, barely any noise, and its performance easily surpasses diesel equivalents,’ commented Electra Commercial Vehicles’ chairman Sid Sadique, pictured left, with John Stewart, fleet resource manager at North Lanarkshire Council.
