These electric Toyota Proace vans will be used nationwide within Wren’s Fleet by Management, surveyors and as Mobile Design Centres in and around London. Two of the vans will be used by their new and rapidly expanding Contract Kitchen Team.

These new Contract Kitchen vans have a new livery design and take the Contract Kitchen fleet to 20 vehicles, which includes 16 plug-in hybrids and two Tesla model Y vehicles. PVM worked closely with Wren to spec the vehicles and determine whole life cost analysis for both purchase and lease options, we were able to deliver a 15% saving on the option for leasing the vehicles.
