Our ongoing transition to electric vehicles forms an integral part of our operational emissions reduction commitment as well as supporting the country’s efforts to decarbonise our economy.
We have transitioned two-thirds of our fleet to EV with a full transition to be completed over the next 24 months. We have also committed to ceasing the further purchase of internal combustion engine vehicles.
We’ve introduced four EV trucks to our fleet to service home deliveries – the first in New Zealand to deliver whiteware, general appliances and larger items.
We continue to increase public access to electric vehicle charging for consumers, with the expansion and upgrade of our charging station infrastructure. Our existing network includes 28 The Warehouse stores around the country offering free EV charging. Thirteen of the sites have been upgraded to 25kW DC rapid chargers.
