City of Lincoln Council has added an electric van to its fleet for use by its parking team.
The van, which can manage around 75 miles on a single charge, has been bought to replace one of the council's diesel vans. It takes around three hours to charge up, and is completely emission and noise free.
Rod Williamson from City of Lincoln Council says the van is a trial and they could introduce more in the future.
The future of "Urban Rangers" will be decided at a meeting in Lincoln tonight, as the city council attempts to save nearly one million pounds from its budget. The Rangers, who patrol around 60 green spaces across Lincoln are used to help keep things like anti-social behaviour under control.
