Renault Retail Group
(RRG) has provided Santa with an electric sleigh to visit and deliver gifts to residents, charities and businesses in London, Cardiff, Cannock and Manchester during a four-day journey in which a full electric charge was applied between 112 -186 miles.
Local social media users directed the route by requesting gifts and visits on twitter and facebook with the hashtag #SantGoesElectric.
The sleigh's is said to cost as little as 2p per mile as well as generate 0% emissions.
Ashley Wade, group marketing manager for RRG said: “Who travels a long way at the end of the year, with a lot of stuff? Santa that’s who! We decided it was time for Santa to go electric with the Renault Zoe. A fun story with environmental statistics on ‘reindeer emissions’ and free chocolate was the perfect way to engage the public with electric cars”.
