It’s the Company Car of the Year in the 2021 Business Motoring Awards. The all electric Kia e-Niro wowed the judges with its combination of style, equipment, EV range and, most important, tax advantages.
With all manner of lease deals, PCPs and PCHs etc giving Vauxhall’s traditional business market easier access to the German premiums, the Insignia has grown in size with its latest facelift – up 55mm in length and a surprising 92mm in wheelbase pushing into VW Passat or Peugeot 508 territory.
The new king for Ford, and all manufacturers, is SUV – and electric. And Ford has come into this area with a big bang, the Mustang Mach E. A big muscle machine, albeit a quiet one, with an iconic name and a very affordable price.
New model extends the reach and range of our E-tron models which were ranked last year as the number one premium cars. Audi expects half of sales to go into fleet and has invested time training dealer staff in talking to fleet decision makers.

There are various driving styles available from the automatic gearbox - [...]
The car remains composed even when pushed through twisty country roads. Pretty amazing given its 2-tonne weight and high body.
What’s really good is that the temptation to grow the latest generation Evoque in size has been resisted so it retains its compact dimensions without actually looking that small.
It might appear to be a Jaguar XE with a new top hat, but the E-Pace actually sits on the same platform as the Range Rover Evoque – which means steel rather than aluminium – which keeps costs down.
P11D Value, £42,835 4-door saloon Engine: 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel Power/torque: 180ps/430Nm Economy: 34.6mpg (on test) CO2: 138 g/km Performance: 0-62/mph, 8.4 secs/140mph What is it?
