Developed in partnership with Masternaut, a Michelin Group company, the planning solution uses real fleet trip data and insights to provide management with the data to identify:
With an available range of around 280 miles, for general day-to-day running around, it's only really necessary to charge the car overnight once every couple of weeks. There has been one long 250-mile round trip on business and while that brought the car close to its range limit, the Hyundai's 'fuel gauge' is remarkably accurate.
The electrification of vehicles in the UK is generating significant momentum with policy makers, the automotive and energy sectors and significant numbers of consumers all helping to drive forward the Electric Vehicle (EV) revolution.

The downsides for business were few, such as the increase in Corporation Tax, and there were welcome new measures to encourage apprenticeships as well as an extension to the business rates holiday until June.
In the final quarter of last year, orders for electric company cars more than doubled for the leasing and mobility specialist, primarily driven by beneficial tax rates for EVs as company cars, and further supported by more businesses offering salary sacrifice schemes for employees.
Salary sacrifice allows all eligible employees to drive a new BEV at an attractive inclusive monthly cost compared to a petrol or diesel equivalent. And for companies, it is also a positive shift in terms of environmental impact and the broader benefits around duty of care for employees.
The government wants to end sales of petrol and diesel by 2030 and put us all behind the wheel of an electric car. To see how this might feel and work, an EV subscription is worth thinking about, basically a service that is more flexible than leasing.
Bioethanol, made from materials such as low grade grains, sugars and waste wood, will become the standard on forecourts from September. The Department of Transport said that E10 could cut transport CO2 emissions by 750,000 tonnes a year – the equivalent of taking 350,000 cars off the road.
While tax increases and changes in tax law are inevitable and even necessary, if not always welcome, it’s already been a difficult year for Britain’s motorists, and proposed tax changes are unlikely to make it any easier

New report polling fleet decision makers across the UK, reveals that only half have EVs in their fleet currently (52%) although 56% would be persuaded to switch if they could have greater confidence in the accessibility of the UKs charging infrastructure, proving that range anxiety is still an obstacle within the industry.
Research by Cambridge and Counties Bank comes in the wake of surging demand and use of EVs by UK households and businesses. Along with the Government’s 2030 target, a 0% Benefit in Kind (BiK) rate relief on EVs introduced in April 2020 is also expected to boost usage among UK firms.
Following the government’s Road to Zero plan, it is a crucial time for fleet decision-makers who need to determine whether it is more cost-effective to buy or lease zero-emission vehicles.
