Proef invests in electric cars

Proef started a new era in the field of electric mobility with a new internal project to remodeling its fleet to electric cars, the first units arrived at the end of September and are already circulating on Portuguese roads!

In addition to the acquisition of the vehicles, were also installed five charging stations, two at the Logistics Center and three at Eurico Ferreira’s HQ in Trofa.

The introduction of these vehicles has several positive aspects, including the contribution to the sustainability of the planet, the decarbonization of society and the economy, as well as the reinforcement of a policy of energy efficiency and innovation.

In Portugal, in the first seven months of 2018, were sold more electric cars than all of 2017, with the electric vehicle market share registering an increase of 2.8% by July 2018, a 53% increase when compared to last year. * With this bet, Proef seeks to follow the growing trend that has been witnessed and to contribute to the paradigm shift of the adoption of electric cars in a business context.

In 2019, it is expected that the number of electric cars increases, as well as the expansion of this project to other cities where the Group has offices, namely Porto and Lisbon.
