Tesla hearse offers ‘greener goodbye’ in Essex and East London

A funeral director will launch his first Tesla electric hearse to offer quieter and more environmentally friendly services.

Co-op Funeralcare will introduce the vehicle in its fleet from Tuesday 3 December.

The cars will be stationed from their Manor Park care centre, available for services in Chingford, Hornchurch, Loughton, Romford, Upminster, Walthamstow and Wanstead.

Charging stations for electric vehicles will also become standard in all new care centers opening next year.

The new hearses will be part of the operator’s existing fleet of hybrid ceremonial, launched last year after a £4 million investment.

Sam Tyrer, Managing Director of Co-op Funeralcare, said: “The way people say goodbye is changing and those who have worked hard to reduce their environmental footprint in life are also passionate about reducing their impact on the planet when they die.

“We are committed to leading the way in helping bereaved families and their loved ones make a final goodbye that does not harm the environment.

“While we are already proud to be a carbon neutral company, it is imperative that we work to reduce carbon emissions.”
