Mayor Nardelli will use an electric cab for some of her engagements
The mayor, Cllr Nicola Nardelli, has been offered the use of a new zero-emissions Metro cab by the company Fraser-Nash. The cabs have been offered to a handful of London VIPs, including the mayor and Mayor of London Boris Johnson.
Roughly three trips a week will be made in the cab. So far, since starting her mayoral year in May, we have been advised that the mayor has travelled in the car to engagements including Formula E in Battersea Park and a reception at the Tower of London hosted by the Prince of Wales Regiment.
The same person has been hand-picked to drive the mayor each time, to ensure the safety of the mayor and of the mayoral regalia.
The mayor, pictured right said:
“I’m delighted to have been offered the use of the cab by Fraser-Nash. During my mayoral year I am keen to be as environmentally-friendly as possible it is definitely the way of the future here in Wandsworth. It makes me very proud that I can attend some of my many engagements in a zero-emissions vehicle.”
