SALARY sacrifice car benefits scheme provider Tusker has reported a strong start to 2023, with a record 240 new accounts signed up between January and June.
These new accounts have seen more than 180,000 new employees gain access to Tusker’s car benefits provision, with an overall total of over 1.5 million drivers who can now access the scheme.
Tusker, which has been part of the Lloyds banking group since February this year, has also had a record-breaking first half of 2023, having delivered more than 8,500 brand new vehicles in the six-month period. This brings its overall fleet size to more than 29,000 vehicles for the first time. Of these, 86% were electric vehicles – more than 6900 EVs delivered.
The growth of Tusker’s new business has come from multiple sectors across the UK economy, with financial services, tech and utility companies as well as charitable and public-sector organisations seeing the biggest take up.
The EV and plug-in hybrid focus of Tusker’s schemes has seen a remarkable drop in CO2 emissions across the organisations for whom it has provided cars. Companies are able to lower their grey fleet emissions and work towards their ESG goals at the same time as attracting and retaining staff.
“We are well on our way to achieving Net Zero by the end of 2030, and to do so knowing that we are also helping motorists to drive both sustainably and affordably, is a mark of success. A strong start to the year for Tusker will allow us to go further in achieving these goals,” added Gilshan.
