Tony Blair Tries Smith Electric Truck

Mr. Blair said: “In the years to come, this operation is absolutely where the future will be.

The Prime Minister, the Rt Hon Tony Blair MP, today (FEB 2) plugged into a new generation of electric vehicles and praised the innovative UK company behind them.

Mr. Blair praised the Smith Newton, the largest and most powerful zero emission truck ever produced. Built by Smith Electric Vehicles, the 7.5 tonne Newton is totally battery powered, making it perfect for work in congested city centres.

“It is fantastic that you have built up this company so quickly. This will be a company that will really make its presence felt not just in the North East, but actually throughout the world.”
