Allied Electric is a new and innovative vehicle manufacturer dedicated to reducing environmental harm by bringing practical and reliable zero emission vehicles to market.
Pictured here is their CEO Paul Nelson and one of the electric vans. Allied Electric’s innovative new range of vehicles includes goods vans and passenger vehicles that are ideal for daily working life in busy town centres. Each electric vehicle that Allied Electric offers has a range of up to 100 miles and a top speed of 70mph, making it suitable for operations in most urban environments.
Paul Nelson comments, “I had a great time up at Teaghlach Wood and we look forward to planting lots more trees with Trees4Scotland over the coming years – keep up the good work!”
