Modec makes its European Debut (26/10/2007)

Modec, the UK-based manufacturer of the world’s first zero emission light commercial vehicles, will be making its continental Europe debut at the European Road Transport Show. The company’s presence in Amsterdam also marks the announcement of its first dealer in mainland Europe – Modec Netherlands BV.

During the show, Modec will be displaying one vehicle in box van configuration, which will be providing ride and drive demonstrations at the entrance to the show. Modec representatives will be on hand to answer questions and talk about the benefits of these vehicles.

Ahead of its dealer appointment, Modec has been conducting trials with high profile companies in Amsterdam since January 2006.  These trials include working with the CityCargo initiative, due for launch in October 2008. Pilot schemes like this are set to make a huge impact on the air quality of the city and as such, have been widely supported by the local community.

Modec began production at its purpose-built factory in March 2007. Demand has since been extremely high and sales continue to increase rapidly. Modec vehicles have already become a common sight on UK roads, with customers including Tesco and Amey and Accord MP, working on behalf of Transport for London (TFL).

Michael Mica, Managing Director, Modec Netherlands BV, said: “The trials in Amsterdam have proved the benefits of these vehicles, demonstrating the concept is perfect for the market. For a city like Amsterdam, the ability to use zero emissions vehicles, and the effect this has on air quality, is incredibly important. We now look forward to introducing the vehicles to potential customers in the Netherlands and Northern Europe from our base in Mijdrecht.”
