Reduced on-road running costs
Lower fuel bills, especially with 100% electric vehicles
Drive the latest technology
Tax incentives, e.g. 1% Benefit in Kind (BiK) tax in 2021/22

Taking your business fleet electric

An increasing number of businesses are adopting electric vehicles (EVs) and integrating them into their fleet.
There are many great reasons why your business should do the same. Discover the advantages below!

Experience the Latest Innovations in Automotive Technology
By transitioning their company car fleet to electric vehicles, businesses can embrace the cutting-edge advancements in automotive technology, benefiting from features such as regenerative braking, advanced infotainment systems, and improved energy efficiency.
Take Advantage of Tax Incentives for Electric Vehicles
Switching to electric vehicles for their company car fleet allows businesses to take advantage of substantial tax incentives and rebates offered by governments and local authorities, resulting in significant cost savings.
Cut Down on On-Road Expenses
Adopting electric vehicles for their company car fleet enables businesses to significantly reduce on-road running costs, such as fuel expenses, as electricity is generally cheaper than gasoline or diesel.
Achieve Your Sustainability Goals
Transitioning to electric vehicles aligns with a business's sustainability goals, demonstrating their commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving air quality, and mitigating environmental impact.
Minimise Your Company's Environmental Impact
Shifting the company car fleet to electric vehicles helps businesses reduce their carbon footprint by eliminating tailpipe emissions, leading to a substantial decrease in greenhouse gas emissions and contributing to a cleaner and greener environment.

Which type of electric vehicle is right for me?

Fully Electric (BEV)

Pure electric cars, also known as Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs), operate solely on a large battery and an electric motor, without any internal combustion engine. They have zero CO2 emissions, making them environmentally friendly. Additionally, their battery-based technology makes them highly cost-effective to run.

Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV)

Similar to fully electric Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs), Plug-in Hybrids (PHEVs) require charging by plugging them in to replenish their medium-sized battery. However, PHEVs differ in that they also feature a conventional petrol or diesel engine. Normally, the initial 20-40 miles of a PHEV's journey rely solely on the battery, while the petrol/diesel engine takes over for longer distances.

Conventional Hybrid (HEV)

As with a PHEV, conventional Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) have both a battery and a petrol/diesel engine. The battery in a HEV is very small and you can’t plug it in. It can only power the car for short distances at low speeds. In a HEV, you will be using the petrol/diesel engine for most of the time.
