Major convenience store chain operator Lawson Inc. plans to replace 150, or about 10 percent, of its commercial vehicles with electric vehicles in the summer of 2009.
Lawson also is considering installing car battery chargers at some of its parking lots by the end of 2009 on a trial basis.
Charging equipment is important to assist the spread of electric cars. If Lawson--which has about 8,000 outlets around the country--equips all of its outlets with charging stations, it likely will help spread the use of electric cars.
According to Lawson, the replacement electric vehicle it will use will be the iMiEV, a Mitsubishi Motors Corp.-made electric car that will be marketed to the public in the summer of 2009. While the current plan only includes the replacement of 150 of Lawson's commercial vehicles, the firm will replace all 1,500 of the company's commercial vehicles with electric cars in the future.
By taking this environmentally friendly measure, the company hopes to improve its corporate image, while also cutting fuel costs
Thanks for the find Andrew!
