Milk float

Newer Older

A milk float is a battery electric vehicle (BEV), specifically designed for the delivery of fresh milk. They were once common in many European countries, particularly the United Kingdom, and were operated by local dairies. However, in recent years, as the number of supermarkets, small independent grocers and petrol stations stocking fresh milk has increased, most people have switched from regular home delivery to obtaining fresh milk from these other sources.
Because of the relatively small power output from its electric motor, a milk float travels fairly slowly, usually around 10 to 16 miles per hour (16 to 26 km/h) although some have been modified to do up to 80 mph (130 km/h). Operators often exit their vehicle before they have completely stopped to speed up deliveries; milk floats generally have sliding doors that can be left open when moving, or may have no doors at all. They are very quiet, suiting operations in residential areas during the early hours of the morning or during the night.

    Great work, my friend! As was already said, colour matches beautifully, and the stickers - where do they come, custom? - made it even more realistic! Also, the choice of the the vehicle was really fine. Well done.

    Nice work! The tan and blue goes pretty well. I wanted to do white and green with mine originally but settled on the same blue as this.
