Electric Futures: Are you ready for the Electric Vehicle revolution?

By David Peake, Chief Operating Officer, The Consultus International Group

 

The EV marketplace is complex, we all know there are benefits but cars are changing all the time and don’t always perform as well as they should. How are you to know what will actually be the best fit for your business?

Modern electric vehicles have realistic ranges of close to 300 miles and rival the performance of conventional sports cars. Yet others may only have a realistic range of 140 miles.

Working out which vehicles represent the best value for your business depends on how each vehicle is going to be used, charged and costs. With the industry fast-evolving knowing what works can be difficult and requires constant updates.

 

‘We can assess your operating requirements, existing vehicle strategy and the EV market to provide you with the best solution.’

 

The electric future begins now

We all know that there will be no new petrol or diesel cars from 2030. Electric Vehicle (EV) sales increased by 144% in 2019 and look to increase dramatically in 2020 with new models being released all the time, realistic ranges over 200 miles and 0% Benefit in Kind (BiK) tax company car schemes will have to seriously consider moving to electric vehicles.

Whilst employees benefit from 0% BiK, employers can achieve major National Insurance savings, providing both companies and drivers with considerable saving opportunities.

Grants and subsidies are available to support EV purchasing and at work charging, but how do you know what vehicles works best for you?

Our system models a range of budgets and operational requirements to calculate what is best for your business and your employees. We will recommend a strategy, range of vehicles and estimate cost, energy and carbon savings.
