With the government now reaching for a 78% reduction in emissions by 2025 and the sale of fuel-based vehicles due to be abolished altogether from 2030, these figures combined with those from Time Finance point towards continued growth in the uptake for wholly electric vehicles.
OEV, which runs an ‘all electric’ leasing and salary sacrifice fleet in the UK, is using Key2 to run its back-office operation from enabling drivers to generate quotes through to interacting with remarketing suppliers for vehicle disposal, and to help realise its ambitious fleet growth aspirations and to ‘create something unique’ in the EV leasing space.
Adequate kerbside charging is vital to the corporate fleet sector being able to achieve its 2030 electrification objectives but many are hitting significant problems with those employees that do not have a home charging solution. This is especially the case for people who live in terraced streets or apartments.
Running an EV still requires a certain amount of forward planning. If you are an SME thinking about investing in an EV fleet best make sure you have the right charging infrastructure in the workplace.
