THERE’S a new supplier of business leasing to SME fleets to give greater choice of electric vehicles.
Fleet management company CBVC and ElectriX are expanding their partnership to include business contract hire.
Until now ElectriX, a one-stop shop offering drivers everything they need to get on the road with an electric car, was only available to personal customers. The offering has now been extended to help businesses switch to electric vehicles.
CBVC, which provides the end-to-end leasing journey for ElectriX, said:
Mike added that as well as assisting companies with their ESG agendas, business contract hire was a cost-effective option for small to medium enterprises looking to lease an electric vehicle rather than purchase it. Low benefit-in-kind taxation was also a significant incentive for drivers to make the switch to zero-emission motoring.
He said the ElectriX website has a wide range of electric cars to suit a range of business budgets, with a variety of cars available in under 12 weeks and some deliverable in 30 days.
Demand for electric vehicles continues to grow strongly, mainly driven by the demand for businesses wanting to switch to tax efficient electric vehicles, whether through business leasing or through salary sacrifice. CBVC/ElectriX has recently provided Allianz with a salary sacrifice programme for its 8000 employees.
The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) reported 152,968 Battery Electric Vehicle new registrations year-to-date (June), an uplift of 33 per cent against the same period last year. The SMMT predicts that nearly half a million plug-in vehicles (including hybrid electric vehicles and battery electric vehicles) will join Britain’s roads this year .
