The respectful silence of a funeral cortege is set to get even quieter in Scotland as the UK’s largest funeral provider, Co-op Funeralcare, launches a Nissan Athena Electric.
Featuring the chassis of a Nissan Leaf EV, an exterior structure made from recycled composite materials further enhances its sustainability credentials.
Co-op Funeralcare is also introducing a private ambulance based on a Maxus van – it’s 100% electric too for an even more discreet service.
The all-electric funeral fleet will serve communities right across the Edinburgh region, including Dalkeith, Galashiels, Leith, Piershill, Musselburgh, Niddrie, North Berwick, Tranent and Sighthill.
“We are excited to be bringing our fully electric Nissan hearse and private ambulance to Scotland to offer dignified, elegant and environmentally friendly services for families and communities in the area.
“The way people choose to say goodbye is changing and those who have worked hard to reduce their carbon footprint in life, are also passionate about reducing their impact on the planet when they pass away.”
