Speedy, supporting the decarbonization of French mobility
The reconditioned tyres are a new step by Speedy in favor of ecological measures. Speedy is, for example, the first network in France to install E85 bioethanol boxes in 2022 – Flexfuel approved. The 12,000 boxes installed by Speedy technicians have already enabled the French to reduce net greenhouse gas emissions by 72% compared to conventional fossil fuels while preserving their purchasing power. Speedy helps the French to decarbonize their current vehicle via depollution diagnostics. This saves up to 11% on fuel and reduces fine particles released into the atmosphere by 4.5 times. For diesels, Speedy offers its customers the option of installing a particle filter to limit their pollution. Finally, the company provides maintenance and repair of electric cars and two-wheelers.
