THE newly renamed Novuna Vehicle Solutions is promising SME fleets a real focus on electrification following its rebranding to Novuna from Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions.
The launch of the Novuna brand will be marked by a commitment from the leasing business to decarbonise its car and small van fleet by 2030.
Following the merger of Hitachi and Mitsubishi HC Capital Inc – the fourth largest bank in the world – the leasing company will have increased financial funding to help the decarbonisation process.
It has in place a full electric vehicle transition plan headed by Johnny Berry, founder of the EV Cafe and the company’s head of decarbonisation.
Novuna says the service helps SME fleets move to cleaner vehicles by assessing fleet challenges and creating bespoke transition plans, and providing the funding and back-office management.
Jon Lawes, Managing Director, Novuna Vehicle Solutions commented:
Novuna Vehicle Solutions is committed to being at the forefront of the UK’s EV adoption drive and we are striving to operate a fully decarbonised fleet by 2030.
As a market leader in vehicle leasing in the UK, working with OEMs right across the spectrum to fund, build and manage fleets of all complexities, our end-to-end decarbonisation strategy provides Novuna with a clear point of differentiation. From funding, right through to employee engagement to support the implementation of EV salary sacrifice schemes, we are creating bespoke solutions enabling our customers to take advantage of the cost and environmental benefits of switching to electric vehicles.
