Reech goes electric with Volvo

Full-service marketing agency Reech has partnered with fellow local business, Volvo Cars Shrewsbury, in the move towards the electrification of its fleet.

As part of its electrification strategy, Volvo aims for 50% of its car sales to be fully electric by 2025, and has committed to putting one million electrified cars on the road by the same deadline.

Although Shropshire has been a late adopter of electric vehicles, both businesses are confident in the development of EV infrastructure and its roll-out across the county.

Chris Carr, managing director of Volvo Cars Shrewsbury, said: “We are excited to be partnering with Reech and to see our vehicles out and about across Shropshire. The C40 is our pure electric crossover where the fully electric EX30, our smallest ever SUV, is both stylish and accessible., and with its 298-mile electric range, drivers can be reassured against ‘range anxiety’.

“There are numerous new models, including the EX90, due to hit the market and we can’t wait to see the opportunities they bring to local businesses.”

Rob Hughes, managing director at Reech, said: “The evaluation and development of our sustainability policies is a core objective and our move towards electric vehicles forms part of that work. Chris and the team at Volvo Shrewsbury have been fantastic in advising us of the opportunities available and we’re delighted with our new vehicle choice.”
