Zip World goes electric


To help preserve the beautiful Welsh countryside that is so vital to its operations, adventure experience company Zip World has started running an electric vehicle fleet.

Based in north Wales, the firm is best known for running Europe’s longest and the world’s fastest zip-line, with other aspects of the business including exploring caverns, racing on zip-lines, and tree-top safaris. With three locations in and around the Snowdonia National Park, minimising its impact on the environment is an important part of the firm’s ethos.

With that in mind, Zip World now has 15 electric vehicles on their fleet, made up of Nissan Leaf’s and e-NV200s. These are used to travel between the company’s three sites, saving money and producing zero-tailpipe emissions.

To make the most of the EV fleet, three fast charging points – 7-22 kW – have been installed by Symphony EV – two at the company’s FForest site, and one at the Titan location.
