Is electric car or van adoption right for your business?
Electric cars or vans, or plug-in hybrids? There is no doubt the heat is rising for fleet managers on the subject of EV. Particularly with the government’s Road to Zero Strategy setting out the ambition for at least 50% - and as many as 70% - of new car sales to be ultra-low emission by 2030, as well as up to 40% of new vans.
You may be at the point of considering whether to trial different fuel types and have the desire to understand just how much the EV landscape has advanced, as well as the financial implications and savings for businesses, in terms of charging points, taxes and service and maintenance.
