It's not been a case of 'fill her up', more a case of 'plug her in' as Harrow LBC has been testing different forms of transport recently.

As part of the best value study into the council's transportation arrangements, agendas and other post for councillors has been delivered in an electric car this week.

Having been plugged in for eight hours, the Peugeot 106 can travel for 40 miles, reaching a top speed of 56mph. Since April, the council has tried out a vehicle which runs on compressed natural gas, and one which operates on liquid petroleum.

A report will be considered by councillors in the spring on the future of transport services at the most efficient cost in the future.

Ann Swaine, chair of the environment and transport committee, said: 'This car costs 30p to charge fully, making it cheaper to run, quieter and especially more environmentally friendly than normal petrol driven vehicles.'
