Glasgow has one of the largest working milk float fleets in the UK.
Electric milk floats come in three wheel and four wheel versions, the latter normally larger.
They are very quiet, suiting operations in residential areas during the early hours of the morning or during the night.

Brush Electrical Engineering Company had been established in 1889, and had manufactured electric cars between 19.
In 1940, Brush required some small electric tractor units, but as none were commercially available, they asked AE Morrison and Sons to produce a design for one.
Morrisons produced a 3-wheeled design, which Brush then used to manufacture a number of units for internal use.
