Dutch retailer Jumbo has introduced new electric vehicles for its online delivery service in Groningen and Utrecht.
The new vehicles do not emit carbon dioxide, so they are beneficial for air quality and the environment, also generating less noise than standard delivery vehicles.
Roy van Keulen, Jumbo's online director, said that these new vehicles provide a "sustainable solution" for the retailer.
"As a family business, sustainability is in our genes, and we feel responsible for the present and future generations," van Keulen added.
The vehicles are part of Jumbo's climate plan, which sets out the retailer's aims for energy efficiency, carbon-dioxide reduction, and the use of renewable energy.
Jumbo plans to introduce more electric vehicles to a number of Dutch cities this year.
