This new fleet, to be used in the neighborhoods of Salamanca, Princesa, Chamartín and Chamberí, will benefit from the advantages that clean-fuel delivery vehicles have over conventionally fueled ones, such as extending the time of distribution in Priority Residential Areas that can reach up to 24 hours, and permission to deliver in pedestrian streets for units up to 5,000 kg of capacity (instead of 3,500 kg).
It is worth mentioning that 40% of the city’s vehicles run on eco-friendly fuels (1,716 units in total), including 1,000 powered by compressed natural gas. Among these NGVs, there are 418 waste collection trucks and 574 buses of Madrid’s Municipal Transport Company. Besides, there are about 3,200 CNG vehicles in Spain, mainly urban heavy-duty transportation.
