Reynolds American Transitions to EV Fleet

Reynolds American Inc., the BAT Group's U.S. subsidiary, and its companies (Reynolds) are transitioning its current 1,800+ vehicle trade and operations fleet to hybrid and electric models. 

The move will replace aging vehicles on a rolling basis over the next three years, resulting in a projected annual 1000-ton reduction in carbon emissions.

"Our sales and trade marketing representatives average nearly 27,000 miles a year in their territories across the fifty states – that's a lot of time on the road," said Ed Mirana, Senior Vice President, National Sales and Strategic Accounts at Reynolds in a statement. "With this move to hybrid vehicles, our sales and operations teams are driving progress on our sustainability ambitions."

Reynolds is collaborating with Ford Pro to transition its current fleet to a mix of vehicle models, including the Escape SEL Hybrid, Explorer Limited Hybrid, Ford E-Transit, and Ford-150 Lightning. Included in the 1,800+ fleet are nearly 50 light-duty operations vehicles used across Reynolds' North Carolina and Tennessee facilities, which will be transitioned to a combination of hybrid and electric models as part of this initiative.
