What are the benefits to businesses when it comes to leasing electric cars?

If you run a business you might have a car scheme for your employees and therefore, you will have many considerations when it comes to choosing the right cars for your team.  With electric and hybrid vehicles as relatively new choices, you might be wondering what exactly are the benefits of switching to an electric car? 

We have outlined some of the key benefits below.

EMISSIONS

Zero emissions is one of the key point that makes electric vehicles an attractive proposition. 

If you are mindful of your business’ carbon footprint and want to decrease the impact your business has on the environment, then Electric Vehicles are for you. 

If you opt for a fully electric car, no petrol or diesel is needed and if you opt for a hybrid, your CO2 emissions will reduce significantly – all good news for your carbon footprint.

RUNNING COSTS

Compared to traditional fuels, electricity is cheaper. On a cost per mile basis a pure electric car could cost a third of what a traditional petrol or diesel car does. Hybrids, combining an electric motor with a petrol or diesel engine, can also be considerably cheaper to run. 

EASIER TO MAINTAIN

Pure electric cars have just three main components – the on-board charger, inverter and motor – and fewer moving parts than cars with a traditional engine. This means there are fewer points of failure and servicing is simpler.

BRAND IMAGE

A ‘green’ brand image is a positive thing to have and switching to electric and/or hybrid vehicles is a very clear message that you and your business care about the environment. 

Of course, your vehicles are just a part of creating a green brand image and many of the businesses we work with have implemented other policies including reduction in international travel, using video-conferencing where possible and recycling policies. 

Our account management team are on hand to help you to begin the switch to electric. Just give them a call – 01491 615 514 or email sales@littlegreencarleasing.com

 

Car Leasing Review - the Ford Kuga

Car Leasing Review - the Ford Kuga

The Ford Kuga has been getting our customers excited! It’s the most enquired about and ordered car by a mile. Our alternative fuel expert, Scott Allen thinks that this is in large part because it’s the first real PHEV to hit the UK market that appeals to the masses because it ticks the following boxes.

  • Low CO2 (32g/km) = Cheap on Company Car Tax
  • Family Size
  • Desirable – Ford are generally a known and liked brand
  • Whole Life Cost = Cheaper than Petrol or Diesel alternative
  • Electric Range of up to 35 miles covers a lot of daily commutes especially if you can charge at home.

The Ford Kuga is a fairly large SUV with enough ‘design’ to make it look sporty.

As mentioned already, the plug-in hybrid version has a pretty impressive electric only range between charges – 35miles is enough to get plenty of people to and from their daily “A to B” – especially with homeworking on the cards for many for the foreseeable future. (WhatCar?’s real life test got 31 miles.) It being a PHEV is also of course attractive to company car drivers looking for cheap monthly benefit-in-kind tax bills.

Overall reviews of the Kuga are positive, stating that it is well priced, spacious, good to drive with an impressive electric range.
