West Country farm machinery dealership delivers fleet of electric vehicles to G7 summit

  • CR Willcocks, one of the South West’s longest running farm machinery dealerships, has supplied Devon & Cornwall Police with a fleet of seven electric utility vehicles for the G7 Summit in Cornwall

The dealership was approached by Devon & Cornwall Police back in April, with a request to hire eight electric side-by-side utility vehicles to support the police in their manoeuvres around the Carbis Bay beach area.

As a main dealer for Polaris, the global leader in side-by-side off-road vehicles, CR Willcocks assembled a fleet of Polaris RANGER® EVs, at a time when Covid-19 lockdowns has put a strain on machinery production, especially in the agriculture industry.

Stephen Retallick, Dealer Principal at CR Willcocks, said: “Polaris have been excellent in helping us supply this fleet of electric UTVs to help Devon & Cornwall Police keep the G7 leaders secure.”

He added: “As more and more farmers and landowners go green, our involvement in the G7 Summit will raise awareness around the availability of electric off-road vehicles even more. It has already piqued the interest with a number of our existing customers as they become more environmentally conscious.”
