Going Green in Style: Experience Trademark Hotel’s New Electric Vehicle Fleet Launch

Trademark Hotel Launched The First Electric Vehicles For Guest Transfers

Trademark Hotel which is located within the Village Market in Gigiri, is the first urban hotel to launch environmentally friendly vehicles in the region. The launch took place at Nairobi on the 9th of January, 2023.

In an industry where travelers are increasingly becoming conscious of the environmental impact associated with their travels, Trademark Hotel launched the first electric vehicles (EVs) for their guest transfers aimed at helping to reduce their guests’ carbon footprint during their stay.

The travel and tourism industry is constantly evolving with travelers actively seeking hotels and destinations that are environmentally conscious.

Dr. Mannish Shah, EBS- Director, Tribe hotels group, commented that in recent times they have seen an increased demand for sustainable tourism products. Travelers are increasingly becoming conscious of the environmental impact associated with their travels and in turn, they are seeking to associate with brands that are mindful of these ecological impacts.

In a move that has positioned the hotel as a thought leader among its peers, Trademark Hotel located within Nairobi County’s diplomatic district is also working in line with the County Government’s agenda for a cleaner and greener city. The environmentally friendly vehicles do not emit pollutants hence contributing to improved air quality in the city.

The initial launch comprises of four Nissan Leaf fully electric vehicles with an electric motor and battery as a source of power, instead of an internal combustion engine. The vehicles comprising of 2018 and 2019 models have a 40kWh battery and 110kW motor, which can comfortably provide 250km of range. They are high-performance EVs, with 5 seats, 435 liters of boot space, and a 5-star NCAP safety rating.

Dr. Manish added that they are excited to be able to offer quiet, clean, smart and safe climate-friendly modes of transport to their guests.

The vehicles which are already in use for guests are charged at the hotel’s basement parking where charging stations have been installed.
