Firstly, welcome to EV Fleet World. The interactive digital update that gives Electric Vehicle and Hybrid fleets everything they need to know.
With the fleet industry heading full speed towards electrification, there couldn’t be a better time for fleet operators to embrace the change, with a raft of new electrified models either already on choice lists or coming soon over the horizon.
With favourable 0% EV company car taxation changes finally confirmed, the appeal of an all- or partially-electric fleet has never been so great. And you can add to that the sweeteners announced in the 2020 Budget of the continuation of the Plug-in Car Grant (albeit now reduced to £3,000 off the price of a new electric car) and the Government investment of £500m in rapid charging hubs.
Availability of these new models due to global demand and a young charging infrastructure mean that electric fleets aren’t quite at the tipping point but they soon will be, with the COVID-19 pandemic forcing fleets to rethink their fleet mobility plans. This is an unprecedented and fast-moving area of the market and it will be exciting to see how the industry develops in the post-COVID-19 era.
