We came across an awesome story a few weeks back about some electric scooters and green initiatives and wanted to share it with you all out there.
Over the last six months, Vmoto’s (ASX: VMT) electric scooters have been evaluated by Domino’s Pizza Enterprises to be used as delivery vehicles for their Australia locations. Domino’s has already ordered seven scooters to start field trials in the area.
The trial is a significant step for Vmoto, and if successful, has the potential for Domino’s to execute its plan to phase out the current petrol delivery vehicles, with the aim of having its whole delivery fleet electric in the near future. (SIDE NOTE: When the heck can we do this in the United States!!)
Domino’s is currently Australia’s largest pizza delivery company with 550+ locations in Australia and New Zealand. What does that mean? That the potential for Vmoto and extending the use of electric scooters in this part of the world is huge.
Domino’s has already indicated it will require up to 3000 electric delivery scooters by 2014 (!), and is officially the first Australian pizza franchise to take such an initiative in relation to trying to “going green” and reducing emissions.
The proposed arrangement between Vmoto and Domino’s will be the first “Business to Business” (B2B) sale of Vmoto’s electric delivery scooter in Australia, and obviously represents a major step forward for not only the company but for the nation as a whole.
I’m trying to get some pizza delivered to EScooter City this Friday night. First pizza place to deliver to me on an electric scooter has my business guaranteed.
